Default Park board

Hey everyone.

I have been riding rome artifact for 5 years now (2008,2009,2010 models). And I want to switch to something better for jumping. Simply saying I am looking for good park board that I can do rails on and jump at the bigger ramps. I am intermediate rider. I have been testing some boards such as ride DH, k2 raygun, stepchild chamberlain and forum youngblood. From these i like stepchild but I cant buy it coz its a very, very slow board. I was thinking about forum youngblood 2013 camber board. Feels good on rails and does perfect when jumping. What do you think?

Going from an Artifact to a Youngblood is a huge jump. The Youngblood is a stiff jumpers board, in my experience is a pain in the ass to jib.

Take a look at the Nitro Rook, Bataleon Whatever, Arbor Blacklist, K2 Fastplant, Forum Destroyer Doubledog, or Ride Buckwild. All of those are 60ft jump capable and better to jib than the Youngblood. And yes I know Forum claims the Youngblood softer than the Destroyer, I've ridden both, the Destroyer is definitely softer.

Thanks for your answer, I will take a look at the boards you mentioned but for me youngblood was fine on jibbs I just had problems to do for example 36 in on the box which was pretty easy on artifact.
