Default Indoor Surv. FK or Fkn Awesome?

Hi guys,

I am riding a Indoor Surv. FK and I am thinking about to get a new board. I ride 50% park (butter etc...)and 50 % all mount.


Would you get the Totally FKn awesome or would you stay with the Indoor Surv.? I dont know if the FKn awesome is a step up from the Indoor?

Thx.

No advice?

I'd personally stay with the indoor. The tfk is stiffer and directional, so not really a park board. The indoor can handle both fine

I've heard the totally fk'n awesome is pretty stiff, so if your into park i would stay with the indoor, I rode an indoor last year all over the mountain, I wasent a big fan of it but it did its Job.

Can you recommend another board? The issue is I have no chnace to test them.

Maybe:
- GNU Riders choice
- or Yes or the Never sommer Proto

I can get a TRS C2 BTX in 157 cm for a good price. I can not test it, that the problem. Would you pick it? Is it much better then the Indoor FK?

I am 179 cm tall and have 176 IBS. Is the 154 cm or 157 cm better?

thx

Here are a few things to consider:

1) The TFA is MUCH stiffer than your Indoor. In fact it's noticeably stiffer than the BSOD. Many who now ride the new BSOD switched from the Indoor. They say the BSOD is an Indoor on steroids, a little stiffer and more stable. It all depends if you like park or all mountain better.

2) Keep in mind the boards you're asking about (Capita vs GNU/Lib vs NS) will ride differently. The GNU/Lib and NS are rockers in the middle while the Capita TFA, BSOD etc are camber in the middle with rockered tips. Rockers are easier for freestyle/buttering while cambers are better for stability and power.

To complicate it more...many who ride Indoors take it all over the mtn and love it. It'll come down to which you like to ride more (park or mountain) that will help in your decision for a 1 quiver deck.

Get the indoor 154. It will do everything you're asking for.
