New jib board w/rocker
I currently ride the 09 Ride Kink 152 but was wanting something with rocker. Since I live in Ohio I'm looking for a good jib board, something soft and playful for the small hills around me like my kink. Now that sales are starting its a good time to buy.
I love the kink and Ride, but unfortunately they started selling the kink at the MCsports around here and now I'm seeing a bunch of them around. I don't really like having the same board I see all over and i never use to so I was looking at some others and was looking for some opinions.
I'm also looking for something a little bigger this time about a 155/156ish
My current list im looking at are:
Ride kink 155 - regardless I still love Ride
Stepchild salary man reverse camber 155
Amplid Aggronym 154 - dont know if anyone has herd of it but its supposed to be alot like the kink
Academy Propaganda Reverse camber 156 - like what I hear about this board but im not sure on the flex tho its rated at a 6.5
I like the skate banana also but see way way way to many of them also lol.
You shouldn't be worried about having a board that others have. It's unavoidable unless you get an imported brand. If it's a good board, that's all that matters. If having the same design bothers you, add your own personal flare to it by putting stickers on it.
For board recommendations, here are mine:
Rome Artifact Rocker - Ultimate jib board. It is noodly soft and durable.
Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2011
Ride Crush - A mid flex jib board. Ultra durable thanks to Slimewalls and CleaveEdge. The edges are beefier steel and you can detune the hell out of them. Really cool graphics. Areas become darker when cold so you can see the graphics pop out.
Ride Crush Snowboard 2011
If you can afford it, my next recommendation is the Never Summer Evo.
Check out the k2 WWW, its the board I ride and its great for jibs, I cant speak for any of the other boards because I've never used them but the WWW is super fun. Its soft and buttery, and has k2's jib rocker technology, you should definitely look at it.
If you wanna buy now check out the Nitro Swindle. If you are willing to wait till 2012, try a Signal Park Zero. Noone in Ohio will have one of those. I'll be on one next year.
Ya I have somewhat of a complex when it comes to having something a lot of people have lol, and I always sticker up my boards when I get them anyways.
Graphics are a big part in my choice on a board as well as flex
-Not a big fan of the artifact or eve
-the swindle is rather tight tho, just never been partial to nitro for some reason
-k2 is good but I see a lot of them also, altho they have alot of choices with the park star, www, and what ever that other one is with the park rocker series
Amplid is an imported board so it would be scarce to see but its about an extra hundred because of that. Money isnt really that big of a problem unless its like ridiculously expensive.
I'm very curious about that academy yet. I hear good reviews about it but havent talked to anyone who has ridden it. my only concern about that one is that its a mid high flex and i was looking for a low mid or something.
Flex numbers mean very little. The Propaganda Reverse is the jib board of choice for the Academy team, its a good choice.
I still think you should check out the Signal Park, really sick board, the flex you're looking for, and its only $350
