Default 2011 Capita Horrorscope FK

I know this board kills it in the park, but how does it fare on resort groomers, esp blacks? Probably very washy on carves, but is it manageable, or should i just look for something a lil stiffer? I'll probably be splitting time equally between park and groomers, but i wanted something on the softer side for flat ground tricks as well.

Thanks for any advice,

JP

i've only heard negative things about the 2011 horrorscope due to the new jib FK.
probably not a good idea to take it on blacks unless you have a 2010 or limited edition 2009.
what size are you looking for? i might sell my 2009 148.

Indoor seems to be the board for you

I've got the original 2009 Horrorscope and I find it quite stable at high speeds. Obviously can't say anything about the more recent models though

actually, i was also looking at the academy propaganda RC board as well..I know this is off the thread's topic, but oh well, haha..i would jump all over this board... i wanted a 152, but the effective edge on this guy is like 112 cm..isn't that also gonna hinder riding the groomers?

The indoor is stiffer than the Horrorscope, but it's certainly not a stiff board.

im riding last years 151 and it has served me well for as an all around board. Im on my high school race team, and was very concerned about the practicality of using it for races. Overall it managed to hold its own, but is in no way ideal. I love it as a playful all mountain board (I weigh 140 by the way) if you're worried about it being too soft, maybe consider the arbor westmark, smokin MIP, or the capita indoor survival. if you don't think the indoor is soft enough, you haven't seen scott stevens ride the cambered version...

looks pretty flexible to me, just make sure you are getting the right size board
