What is big for you?
What kind of jumps? powder or in the park?

For kickers 10m and larger in park I recommend a classic cambered board.
You need the stability and grip for the speed, take off and landing.

Lib Tech Dark Series. It's narrow and made for cutting percise lines to large booters. It has these raised plates beneath the bindings so it can be more narrow and also give extra leverage for quick edge transitions too. The Lib Tech Mark Landvick has those plates too but the setback is a bit more so it should be better for powder. But sizing is limited. They both have magnetration which would be good for hard park snow conditions.

Big Ice-Coast park jumps. Do you recommend sizing up and flex of >5? What about hybrids, so I don't catch an edge upon landing?

I do like the T.Rice but am apprehensive about it not being fully wrapped. Are any Lib Tech boards fully wrapped?

So you think a narrower board is the way to go, I figured a Wide would make more sense because of the larger surface area for landings. Do you know of any other manufacturers who use magnetraction type tech?
