The t rice handles large jumps just fine, jibbing isnt much fun with it though.

Its a 2011 board


I guess its doesnt really matter if I can ride park with it, I just want to make sure its not going to feel way too short and unstable when im going down the mountain, because I like to bomb runs a lot (although admittedly theyre short east coast trails)

Also, the effective edge of the board ive got now is 121.5 cm and the contact edge is 118 cm. The T Rice has a contact length of 118.5. This seems pretty close to what ive got now so maybe I wouldn't even notice the different in length too much


Also, for right now I dont have any intention of doing any jibbing, ill just be hitting jumps in the park, whether it be with the T Rice or my current board

Thanks for the advice, I just put the order in Now ive just got to wait 7 monthes before I can try it out


Also, would burton cartels or union forces be a good match for this board? I assume they would be but I just want to be 100% sure

Yep, cartels and forces will be just fine. Assuming the cartels aren't ICS.
