aight... so just for my knowledge, how is a stiffer board going to perform as opposed to a more forgiving board? more prone to sliding out? just curious for future reference.....

I ride a 148 and I weigh 140lbs. and my board is much softer than the Ape. - Thats a quote, tho it didn't show up as one.


Thats just cuz you're probably into park/street/jib stuff. Daz a little short for normal people. I'm 6', 140ish and ride the 07/08 (08/09 looks like SHIT) Rome Machine 157. Yeah, It's a Park/Jib board, but it handles the rest of the mountain, to sum extent. I luv it.

LIB shows the skunk ape to be a softer board than the dark series. so what are u talking about as far as more forgiving? it's also wider which will be nice with size 13 boots...

Yeah well Burton also rates the Custom as a park board doesn't mean it is. Companies can rate shit how they want its not always how it flexes.
