Evo or Proto
Hey guys, I've wanted a proto for a while now but I'm also thinking about the Evo. What do you think would be better for me, the Evo or the Proto? I want to do about 70-80% park, but I'm a noob at park (boardslides and 50-50's only for now). I also like to do medium-large (I hope this year) jumps. For the times that I'm not in the park, I'm going to be doing single or double blacks. I live on the Canadian eastern side, so we mostly get groomers and sometimes a lot of ice. If it matters, I'm 6 foot, 160 pounds and still growing

I'm in the same boat...cant decide between the 2. Can't go wrong with either.

I love my Evo, but I'd trade it tomorrow for a Proto.

If you're a straight jibber, the Evo is the better board. However, the Proto should be better all-mountain and for jumps.

I hit maybe 10 jibs a season. It's just not my thing. The Evo is still a fun, playful board all over the mountain. The Proto should just do that better.
