Default Step Child Jib Stick

Alright so I got my friend into snowboarding and he is looking for a board, and he is thinking about teh stick of jib. He used rentals before and prefers mountain, but I only do park so he wants to learn park and stuff too. Technically he grinded before, but all he did was he rode over a box-rail -_- So for a beginner who will mainly ride mountain but will try park a good amount of time too, is the Step Child Jib Stick a good board for him?

Probably will be fine. You only really need a really specialized jib deck if you plan to get really tech like board/lips on kinked features or change-ups and butters on jibs. I 50-50 a double kinked on a Lib Travis Rice.

For buttering, a softer deck will make a bigger difference than basic jibbing. Even simple 180 butters are harder on a medium flex deck. Without reservation, I recommend the Capita Horroscope for beginning park riders interested on the jib side of the park. It's very soft and forgiving making it easy to learn on and it's cheap. You can learn to butter on it very easily.
