What to do?
 
Hey guys I'm just starting out with free style riding. I live in the uk so won't be able to ride often like you guys in the states seem to but I'm going to try and go at least once a month n get a full day out of it.
My question is I ride a "ride dh2 159wide" and was wondering if I will struggle with buttering and spins or jibbing with this or if its suitable. I am 6' 3" and 200lbs

Thanks for any help

The DH is a stiff board so you'll have problems buttering, and pressing. it won't effect your spinning and flips, that's all you. The DH will do very well on Big kickers though because of the board shape. If you want to mostly butter, and jib I would suggest a Capita Horroskope or Never Summer Evo. They're the best park boards out there in my opinion. The Evo also handles those big 70 foot kickers no sweat.

Yeah I agree. The DH boards are relatively stiff. Not the best for buttering. Super good for jumps though.

I'd recommend the Evo or Proto as well. Both still have the torsional stiffness to be stable boards while the RC allows it to butter almost effortlessly.
