Bingo.

Also, there's no such thing as a "shitty car" that goes 200mph.

Ditto for snowboards. There's no such thing as a "shitty" good park board. either it's a good park board, or it's not.

Why not the Artifact tho? For what I'm going to do with it you don't think it's good? I barely hit jumps. Mostly street. Freestyle to jib

You have asked the same question in 20 different ways. You're just waiting for someone to respond the way that you want them to so it can back up your opinion. People here are giving you their honest advice so no matter how you word the question their response won't change.

since you're picking your board based on graphics (which is fucking retarded) why don't you tell us the graphic style you like and then maybe we can pick you a board... what graphics do you like?

also, 15 foot jumps aren't shit - they won't "destroy" any board... if you tailblock a landing on any jump you will break boards, but that's just not knowing how to snowboard...

Why don't you just tell us what board you want us to recommend so that you'll feel better about buying the pretty board you like based on its graphics?

I just don't want a plain ass design. Like take the banana for instance, the top sheet graphic/color scheme is sexy AS well as the bottom.

The PRIORITY is to pick out a board for my specific style, then just leave the colors/graphic opinion to me.

So a board that I can use for 85% street, 15% jumps.

-rails
-lunch tables
-buttering
-jibbing
-jumps (not huge kickers)

Do you think the artifact rocker is a good choice for the description above?
