What size jumps are you planning on doing?

Probably 40 foot-ish or less. But I spend more time on rails and boxes.

Also I just realized that shop stocks bataleon boards, so how do the Fun Kink and the Airobic compare the the pickle and skate banana?

Swindle. If you're jibbing a lot a Lib wont hold up. One bang on the tail or nose and it'll delam. The Swindle is soft enough for a jib day but with enough pop and stability so send good sized jumps.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
