Need an advice for my new board

Hey guys, i was using Gnu park pickle for 2 years. But this year i sold it, i want a new board now. I am looking for more fleexer board, but still good at all mountian. Becuase i like freestyle riding, butter jib etc. But i am not so good at them, i am trying to level my skills, but still riding all mountian on the day. Do you have any advice fo a board, really good at park, and still good in power and pist.

Anyone used DC ply? How is that?

The Ply was pretty blah to me outside of the sidecut which was super fun.

The most playful yet still mtn capable boards I have ridden so far are the Signal Rocker light, Salomon Drift Rocker, and Flow Verve.

Thanks for your advice, what about dc pbj, do you know anything about it? i heard lots of good things about it, but it is soo flexy i think it would be a problem in powder, or fast riding on track

Yes my opinion is from riding it. It's below mid flex but not a noodle. It just wasn't that great of a ride. Better to be had at that price.

Id suggest you check out either Libtech Skate Banana or the Burton Process then. Those 2 are good all mountain boards with a good flex that will let you have fun anywhere in the mountain.

But if you really want to get an awesome deck, then deff take a look at the NS SL.

Where are you? Signal has accounts in Poland, sooo there is a good chance wherever you are they ship somewhere in your country and you should be able to get it somehow.

NS is Neversummer

If at all possible no, don't. They are not a respected online shop. They were previously Sierrasnowboards who did some very questionable and some just downright borderline illegal things in the industry to make money.


Signals Euro distribution headquarters They also have a shop in Greece and the Ukraine. Not that you could make it to one of them, but they might be able to help you out and ship you one. You're best bet is likely to just contact the Euro center and see what they might be able to do for ya.
