Are there any boards you'd recommend for doing jumps, jibs, and cruising down the mountain? Maybe the goliath? NS SL? I just don't have the money for more than one, nor do I get the chance to snowboard enough to own more than one.
And thanks for your help, it is very appreciated.
Yeah I mean, if you want an all mountain board get either the Jam or the Goliath. ET is a more park specific true twin. The Jam is stiffer so for jibs I'd go with the Goliath.
Jumps: Same (Both catch free)
Stability: ET (Slight adv.)
Buttering: EVO (It's got rocker, duh)
Jibbing: Same (Neither are noodley)
Carving: ET (It's basically traditional camber)
Switch: Same (twin ftw!)
Pow: EVO (Once again, rocker!)
That's my take.
We got a draw heret! Lol! But if the ET is just slighty better in stability, the Evo get a better overall result, as in Pow and Butter it's way better.
I thought the ET would be way more catch free, as there's no big tech for this purpose in the Evo (I guess..)
You might want to consider the Riot. It's like the ET but stiffer and with a sinistered base so it can handle speed better. The speed and stiffness will make it better for jumps and pipe, but buttering around, while still possible, will be more difficult.
