Ok well let me see if I can get this straight. I want to ride the mountain at fast speeds and I want to go on woods runs with friends and then do a little bit of freestyle. This forum seems like its going to shit. Last year the people on here were much more friendly.

Are your hemorrhoids flaring up today? You initial questions were pretty darn hard to have an idea of what you were looking for. Judging by the first one, I would have just recommended you buy a snowboard with a ptex base and metal edges.

You are getting on track finally, but you can't blame the locals for having fun at your expense.

Much better. Now you're giving people something to work with. If it's the Never Summer lineup you're looking at then you kind of sound SL to me.

It's for people that are all-mountain freestyle, less emphasis on park. It's damper than the proto for when you're into bombing/hard charging runs.

Dude. What did you want, people just to randomly name snowboards? Boards are designed with riding styles in mind.

You basically started a thread and said "Hi, I'm a guy. What kind of shoes should I get?"



I think people actually went easy on you.

You want an all mountain board. Usual suspects. Never Summer SL/Proto. Arbor Coda/Blacklist/Westmark.

Start digging around review sites and threads. Get an idea of what you think will interest you. Come back with 4 or 5 selections then ask what is best.

I don't know anything about Flow boards but I googled and it sounds like the Flow Quantum would fit your needs. It's a stiffer all mountain freestyle from what I read.

This deserves an award. Funniest thing I've seen on these forums so far.

I'm not picking on you Nick, this was just worded pretty hilariously.

Isn't the quantum a jump board? I dont' know much about Flows except the Era (which would be a good cheap board). But I think the Flow Shifty is better here perhaps.
