Need advice on SL, please help
Hey guys so I'm looking in to getting my first board and am really sold on the NS SL (especially graphics, i admit im shallow). I live in Florida so the only times I get to ride are annual trips, mostly to North Carolina but there are plans for one next year to Colorado. Can't wait! I've ridden enough to not be considered a beginner but its always been on rental boards. I love cruising down the mountain but plan on learning more in the park. I want to learn jumps and jibs but i will favor jumps. Also when the opportunity is there I will definitely spend alot of time in the pipe.
My question is...does the SL seem like a board that will fit my needs? I want a board that has stability cruising down the mountain but one that I can also throw a few jibs with and butter it.
Also, since its not a true twin does that badly effect spinning air tricks? And for pipe, generally do you want a softer or stiffer board?
Thanks a million for any advice!
