Signal Snowboards??

I am looking at the Signal Park Camber and Signal Park Flat. First of all I would like to know if they are noticeably softer than the Arbor Westmark (I have a 156 Westmark and looking at the Signals in a 154). Also is one softer than the other?

They are the exact same board, just one has camber and one doesn't. I'd say it's sure softer than your Westmark. The full camber might still take more effort to press and butter though as you have to get through the camber first, but yeah.

Would this be a good altenative to my Westmark. I want sonething softer for jib specific riding and some small/medium jumps.

Yeah the 154 will definitely be a good softer jibbier alternative to your Westmark.

Nivek,

Quick question for ya bud. I have Westmark and want something a little stiffer for riding a little faster but at the same time still be a "fun" board.

Is there something from Signal or any other brands? I was looking to pick up a Coda next but the smallest size next year is 156

Flat 54.




The OG Flat is probably the closest thing to the Coda and until 2014 was my preferred stick from them. Playful enough but more all mountain focuses.

Nivek, how is 2014? Am I still alive? Divorced? More broke?

What kinds of board is Signal making in the future that you are referring to? ETT makes me want one in the quiver at some point, those guys are just righteous.
