I loved my shift to a true twin from my Directional Burton Canyon (wide version of the custom) for effortless perfect switch riding. I must admit I could ride switch well on the Canyon but there were "those occassions" where it would give like a weird tweek or kick, I did have the stance most centered I could but the combination of the shitty Burton 3D limited mounting positions, the directional sidecut and forced setback (unless I went crazy on the stance width) made it a bit dodge.
My first true twin was a revelation.
This post reminds me of my first board was a 98 Airwalk Match, great for learning rails but would just fold on any decent sized jumps, and low back with minimal straps bindings..haha how things have changed...yet like all good fashions come around again.

Longest Owned board = 05 GNU Riders Choice, that's the most stoked I've ever been for a snowboard and I still have it to date and will never sell it. It's also literally the toughest board I've ever ridden in regards to durability.

Best Big Mountain Freestyle = 2012 NS Heritage

Best Freeride board = 2011 GNU Billy goat

Best park/jump board = Rome Mod Rocker

Best All Mountain Board = K2 Turbodream or the Nitro Team Gullwing

Best Camber board for all mtn = Lib Tech TRS

The deadliest catch (mans board)= Nitro Team Factory edition.

Best hard charging Powder board = 2010 Nitro Pantera LX

Best bindings = Flux SF45 & Raiden Phantoms

The first one I owned and progressed on: Option SuperCharger 168. Still have it. It's for sale. The first $10,000 gets it.

12 arbor blacklist. Never fails to be fun, but still am eager to try a mod rocker that could top the blacklist.

Dude, my first board was a K2 HC as well. Blue with a line pattern that ran down the center and fanned out at the tail.

Many a bruise from that thing.
