OP: I only got as far as this dooders post so I don't know if you made a decision yet. If not I would personally go with the Basic over the Process. Better option in my opinion. And you won't out grow it anytime soon. I could ride that board every day in every condition here in Colorado and be satisfied.

Edit: read the whole thread. PYL is too much board and by the time you get good enough to really use it right you'll want something new anyway. Waist of money. I have never had a great time on a DC. They make some decent decks but each o e lacked somewhere. Greats, this is about as stiff as I'd go if I were you. And it is a fantastic board. The Coda is also amazing, but I still prefer beginners start on something predominately camber. Especially if you think yoh'll be more of an all mountain rider than park rat. Camber teaches you to drive the board, rocker is more guiding the board.
Just to clarify, after your edit you still think the Basic is the one to go for?

I have actually been reading your posts and have been waiting for you to comment due to the fact you know about the basic.

Thanks for your help

Yeah I don't care if you're on your period or not.

If all you had to do was float an not move sure flex wouldn't matter. But you are moving. Your nose is having to push out and down. Effectively if your nose is softer it doesn't push the snow down as hard. So the snow has a better ability to push your nose up. Meaning it stays on top of the snow instead of sinking.

OP. Yes. Still the Basic.

Basic is a rad board for a beginner and you'll grow with it. I have a great dudes and a softer version of that would be perfect.

Thanks everyone

I will be going for the BASIC, why?, its a great beginner board, and it is in my budget, so if I damage it or whatever I wont be crying home.

Just hoping it is better than the Burton LTR board I used as a rental, LOL

Well I am based in London and the cheapest YES. Basic i found was from Snowboard Asylum, for 216 (still a lot more expensive than US), oh well. I have reserved the 157 - hopefully pick it up on Monday.

Not really sure that helps you when you are based in SA.
