Buying 2th board! Park/Rail/Flex
 
Hi there boarders! Peter here :)

Before I begin I must apologize for my bad english, but that's life!

Yeah, I have been snowboarding for 2 season's now, and I got my carves, and I am starting to move into rails and medium sized jumps. Atm I got a pretty stiff board, and a bit to heavy for me, so I can't really make to rotate it good on jumps, and I can't pop it. Olie I find impossible with the board, because of the stiffnes. I find it really, boring. So I am looking for help to choose a board that seems to be a good one for my riding;

I am looking for a board with flex, so I can do board press (Tail/Nose), pop around, and get some air with :) My budget is alright I guess for my current skillset, about 500-600$ maximum. I live in Norway.
I got a snowboard shop not far away from me, and they got a website. Could you check if any of thoose board on this website is anything to consider? Press here

My current weight is about 143lbs +/- 5, height is about 1.83m (6ft 03⁄64in) and shoe size is around 10-10.5 (US size)

Weight 143lbs +/- 5 (65kg)

Boot size 10-10.5 US (45 EU)

Riding style (do you like to charge steeps?): Spin 7's/9's, ride groomers?) As I am in the begginger/getting comfertable level, I guess this brett is going to be used to 180s, 360s, railing, poping around, and 5īs later on. And presses, loads of presses! It will be a park&rail board.

Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?): I am 16, but my weight and height is pretty stable, but I guess I will gain more weight.

budget (if you have one): Max. 500-600$ but if you could check this page, if any of thoose boards are worth it;This page

Your location of riding; Norway, really canīt say more. Since we got all kinds of weather and different ride places.

It would help if you could give a link to the site.
I think you should check out the Rome Artifact Rocker, it's a complete noodle and great fun for doing tail presses and nose presses, both on the snow and on rails/boxes.

Ty for the response!
Where going for the Forum Manual, but the guy I met at the local snowboard shop ( Sponsored by Burton, DC, Sox and Analog), told me Forum was shit.... I just went with the propoganda :) But I will check the stepchild If I can get hold of it.

Funny that the "burton rider" says the forum Is shit.. Beings burton owns forum and the boards are essentially the same and same tech the last few years..

G Steezy 01-12-2013 11:41 PM

The majority of Burton riders are poser chumps .
Nuff said.

Completely different carbon layups and core profiles. Nice try though. Really the only thing Forum borrows is Flying V.
