Default Freestyle/all-terrain board question

Hello. I am a begginer/intermediate snowboarder that has no knowledge about snowboard equipment. I know that they make snowboards specifically for "freestyle" as oppossed to "all-mountain". The question I have are for those who have snowboarded on boards made specifically for these styles. Is there really a difference in feel and ride? I ask only because I accidently ordered a board that is a twin freestyle board. What I wanted to order was a "all-mountain" board. I ride rails and pipes and like to jump, but I also like to carve down the mountain. Does this twin freestyle board gonna affect the performance of the ride down the mountain. If so, I am going to have to trade the board in for something else. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

You can still rip pretty good on a freestyle board. Don't worry, you'll be fine.

You will be ok, a freestyle board will get you down the mountain. An All-Mountain board would most likly be better for you if you hit the mountain and power alot. The All-Mountain boards are so you can get the most out of your board on alot of the terrain with less little problems. But hell if you want to trade it in for a different board go for it.

I bought a Rossignol decoy. Does anyone know anything about the brand? I know that they make pretty decent ski's so I figure they can't be too bad with snowboards. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong.

Size of the board will make a difference. If it's not really short you'll be fine. My park board handles the groomers/powder better than my all mountain handles the park. If you ask me, my park board is my all mountain board and my all mountain board is my freeride board. You should be fine.

Default Thanks for all the help

Thanks everyone. I'm soo glad that I found this forum. I feel much better about my purchase. I was afraid that I wasted my money on the snowboard. Wish me luck. I'm headed back to Denver next weekend for another snowboarding trip. Woohooo!
