Please give a little more description of the type of riding you are going to be doing. I know you mentioned no park or jibs, what stokes you?

Side Hits on Vimeo

Stuff like this, i live in Iceland and the mountains are small and so are the jumps. There's not much fun riding my Undisputed here so I want to change my riding altogether this winter, I want something that I can have fun on while shredding down a basic blue.

This line of Bataleon's description says it best:

"Soft (but not too soft) flex with FREESTYLE TBT is great for buttering and pressing rails, will not wash out if you land with your weight slightly off the bolts"

Hell i kindof want to do this aswel but on stepper terrain, Evil twin or Whatever? If you say goliath once again, im getting it and trusting you. Im just scared it might be just as stiff as my billy and then ill have two of the same purpose board. I want softer and jibbier feeling. I need a model and a size, pairing it up with some flux tt30. Spec's: 210 lbs, 6.2 ft. 157 evil twin or 158 whatever, OR 158 goliath? OR....? BTW - sidehits is the best feeling vid i have ever seen. Looks like such a cool thing to do when its not dumping.

Possibly I misunderstood, What is the range of riding you will be using this new deck for?

Hi,

Have you ridden the Billy Goat? Are you keeping it?
