A more flexible board...??

Hi, I'm begging for your advice. I've had a nitro team board (see attached) for 3-4 years now, but its ridiculously heavy and stiff. I doubt i will be into rails and boxes...however i am into jumps, and with my board it is difficult to maneuver.

So i dont even know what category to look into...

thanks

would be nice if you would include your height weight boot size where you ride and how often.

I'd say either a Neversummer sl/evo RC, k2 darkstar/believer/jibpan, rome agent, Atomic Hatchet, or Capita mid life lost/stairmaster extreme.

I'd say anything from 152-155 would be good for you.

awsome! so now i have a few names. Its just that the ones that i have found sofar have been purely freestyle boards (lol..noodle boards), which i know arent for me.

Overnight i got some suggestion from my buddy: rome's cheaptrick, atomic triarc, and k2's zeppelin .....any thoughts

Also, kind of a side question, is there a whole lot of difference btw twin and directional? cuz i can ride switch a little bit with my directional board...

thanks again!

A twin tip board would be ideal for riding switch but there's nothing that will keep you from riding switch well on a directional twin.

no.

All its going to do is allow the board to have the same flex and ride the same either way with a twin.
