Exclamation i need a new board

Can you guys please help me? I was looking at the skate banana. But i'm realizing this wont be good for my many black diamond high speed bombs. I will be also hitting the park the rest of the time. the magnatraction seemed cool on the lib because i ride are the hard ass east and it gets icy at times. i need a good advanced freestyle twin stick that can handle my high speeds and big jumps and park. any recommendations?

Uhmm you probably wanna go with a traditional camber board because I hear that rocker boards are less stable at high speeds. What's your price range?

The Machete won't be great for bombing runs. It's not washy by any means, just that I prefer more stable boards for bombing.

You can possibly find a previous year's Burton Custom X. It's positive camber and is just a pure joy to bomb down runs on.

If you are looking to jib in the park, then you're going to have a hard time finding something that is good on rails and bombing icey steeps. If you are doing jumps in the park, a stiff board is what you're going to want for that mixture of riding. For this purpose, you do not need a true twin. A directional twin would be better.

If you want to stay with Lib Tech, the T-Rice C2 is your best board for what you want to do. This is the 2011 model so slightly over budget for you. To make you feel better if you want to purchase this one, you'll get a free pair of SkullCandy LowRider headphones with it and free shipping

GNU Rider's Choice is another excellent option with the Mervin tech.


2011 Rossignol One Magtek. Don't judge this board from previous year's reviews. It has been almost completely revamped. It also has one of my favorite hybrid cambers. It's positive camber between the bindings and rocker through tip and tail. Excellent edge hold due to MTX and super stable.

I think it depends how much you weigh though. I'm around 148-150 lbs and I found the machete pretty stiff (maybe a 6/10 flex). Of course it won't be as good as the Custom X or a good cambered board but I think its pretty good considering its a rocker board and you also want to do park the rest of the day.

2010 NeverSummer SL,(or 2011 if you wanna fork out more cash). Good luck finding one... but if you do it's a pretty damn solid all-mountain freestyle board. I have the Evo, which is softer and less damp park board, and that thing still tears up steeps, (does not like chop though). The NS technologies work really good on crappy ice, and well most everything.
