ok... enough lolly gagging

my first board:

alright, ive been researching like mad and im going crazy. i just want to hit jumps rails boxes etc and survive making it to the bottom of the hill on any old run. ive read so much about all this snowboard tech. i cant choose a board. rocker? camber? hybrid? sintered? extruded? traction? i dont know whats the best i just want a board that has it all. all the gadgets, bells and whistles i just want a board thats going to last a while that i can grow a lot a lot a lot into.


heres what ive been looking at:

burton custom flying v (but idk if it will be good for park
lib tech attack banana (but its not sintered?)
never summer proto ct (i dont know much about this board yet)

what do you guys think of a great board that is going to do it all and have lots of room to grow. i want all the best of everything i dont care about price really. AHG#$%&$

those are all great boards, you will get a lot of suggestions for the proto, its getting really good reviews. Some people don't like btx from libtech, but maybe you will. And I rode the custom flying v once last year, felt very unstable, maybe just me cuz all I've ridden is camber but felt WAY to lose for my liking. But a lot of people swear by their custom FV!

honestly, basically what I was trying to say is that at your skill level, all of those boards will work. Your not good enough yet to be able to really tell the minor differences that all high end boards have. The only time you really should be getting nitpicky is when you start getting really good. But for all intensive purposes, the proto is your best bet.

get a lib cygnus. it costs 2,500 dollars and you'll never have to buy another snowboard again!

It's true here, rider vs board so pick one and ride.

I get caught up in all of this gear talk. Trying to read, then buy, then second guessing, then trying to sell and buy another board without ever even trying the first one.

Pick one, and ride. here is a good start. It's just two or three dude's opinions but they've ridden a lot of boards.

I've done more reading than you probably have and if I was a little heavier and had a larger foot I'd be buying a blacklist. Right now I'm on an Evo. Westmark is another I want to hop on.

If you want a park oriented quiver killer, my favorites that I rode were the Signal Omni, Bataleon Whatever, Nitro Pro One Offs, or the Arbor Blacklist.

With those four you can pick camrock, TBT (camber), RC, and full rocker. All you need.

Proto's good, but over $600? Yeah, meh... I'd rather a Forum Destroyer Doubledog over that... way cheaper. Imma get yeldz at for that one. Oh well.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
