Default Park pickle why are there curves on the edges of the board??

Hey i recently bought the 2011 park pickle board. However im kinda scared that i made the wrong choice in my baord selection because the baord has wierd curves in the edges. Can someone explain to me what this is supposed to do and how will it affect my big jump game and rails. take in consideration im 220 6"4 and got a 159 wide. I think i shoulda got the never summer revolver cuz i heard it can handle jumps better and rides nice on the mountain. I also teach snowboarding so kinda enjoy my riding , can someone tell me if i fucked up or not lol thanks guys

just curious, how did you choose the park pickle? did you just walk in the store, close your eyes, point your finger out and grabbed the first board you saw?

My skate banana has magnetraction also and I really only notice the difference on icy patches. My chatters a bit at high speeds.

I'm pretty sure all it does is give you more control when you're on your edge, but I've never ridden a board with magne-traction so don't take my word for it

No I'm just taking a 5 minute break from writing 293848484 fucking product reviews. I've come to the conclusion Step Child needs to hire a real copywriter.

Ctrl C + Ctrl V = done and done

Heard Stepchild makes some sick boards, never rode it before though. Gotta check them out on a demo day..
