It's a snowboard, It will get you down the hill. I can hit 50mph on a downsized jibstick. Doesn't mean its the best for the job. Will the Horror limit you to the park? No. But it will be less fun outside the park than others, and others will be just as fun IN the park. You're call.

And the others that would be just as fun in the park would be (or did you mention them earlier)?

Everything I already mentioned. The Rocker light being the closest to how the Horror will feel, but that carbon strip down the middle makes a world of difference.

I guess it depends on whether you mean just getting down the mountain or enjoying the process. It will definitely get you through some groomers to where you're going but its not a ride I've gotten excited about. But that's just me. Keep in mind I like riding the mountain and not just the park, and up to now my main ride is an SL.

To me, its a park board that falls really heavily on the very soft, awesome at one thing catagory, which is that its a super fun jib board. If all you wanted in a board was to hit rails with all day, or maybe you're an urban feature guy, then it would be great. If you actually want to carve it and ride pow on occasion, or maybe there's a ton of ice where you are, I'd say pick a different park board.

I have the 09 version, the first one, and I don't know if they made it stiffer or softer comparatively.


I like my Never Summer so I would pick an Evo, but that's obviously not the only option. I'm actually on the fence about the Evo vs Proto myself, as I want a softer board that I can use all mountain, but until I can demo them its too close to call.
