Default Alaric needs a jibstick

Alaric needs a jibstick and is probably going for a new Ride Kink. Any new developments that say I shouldn't get one? Or any other board suggestions?

I WILL be using 390s and Lashed boots.

85% rails, 10% jumps, 5% trees/bombing runs.

900 total vertical feet on my mountain.

edit - other boards ive looked into before are the artifact and stairmaster. wasnt so much a fan back then. should i be now?

edit edit! - so i dont have to make a new thread. ive been out of the game too long. whats the difference between 390s and 390 boss?

390 Boss have canting options. They might have some other options, too. Check out the Rome website.

For all out jibsticks, try the Capita Horroscope or Ultrafear or Signal Park. I personally prefer my Never Summer Evo since it can go out the of the park quite well, too. The new Arbor Blacklist has been getting quite a bit of hype, too.

Canting is the only difference between the 390s and the Bosses, other than colour.

if you are looking for a super soft board maybe check out the arbor draft too, my friend had that last season and it seemed like a fun board.

Best of the 2012 Jib oriented boards I rode were the Nitro Swindle, K2 WWW, or the Salomon Drift Rocker.

If you want rocker get the Salomon, if you like a little more traditional feel and i guess "oomph" in a board, get the swindle.
