Both sound like good boards but the Brando is C2 and I really wanna stay away from the floaty side. The la nina sounds like a good option. I wonder how that would fare compared to the Phoenix, and the Billy Goat.

The new beast would be an interesting option.

C2 is not a particularly 'floaty' profile. Has enough rocker to make it more 'loose' but not nearly enough to get a lot of float.

Very nice. Im going to pick one up as well. Such a good board, specially for the price they basically give them away.

Well I don't consider $560 CAN giving them away, but then again, I am not a rich Okotopian...lol

agreed, bg is not floaty, it is looser feeling, in part because it is torsionally softer...imo what make it want to keep the nose in the fall line. However it is lengthwise fairly stiff...so compared to like a banana, it does not fold up and there is something to push against when riding the deeper. So when riding deeper you just shift a tad to the aft...but it doesn't give way/fold up like a banana. There is not nearly as much rocker like a banana...so its a quick fore/aft shift to get on the nose/tail. In a way the bg is a very responsive board and just small/subtle movements to get it to engage. Its a lively board. I think the genius of the board is torsionally softer, longitudinally stiff and narrow for quick edge to edge. Idk but think the c3 might be an improvement. For me, I like to try a bg that nothing was changed but having it be a full cambered with a medium pop....much like an old women's gnu b-nice that was narrow, mag, cambered...that was such a fun lively board that had some pop. The bg has some pop but you have to load it up...it naturally just wants to fly straight off things with out pop...which is fine...cause it lands surefooted. If you get a goat...just know it is not a deep pow floaty board. Last year was riding some dry fluff that was thigh/waist deep but had a firm bottom...the goat handled the fluff and it would hit the bottom and keep going...a banana would have just folded, a pow deck would have never hit bottom.

Like any deck it is about what compromises are you willing to tolerate. I just think that the goat is the deck made for usual the pnw terrain and snow. Temple has a vid of riding the goat...that pretty says it all...and the pow he is riding is knee deep...not waist.

Oh i got mine for 350. Considering the board, that's like 100 more then a Sims board from sportcheck, lol. And i'm definitively not rich, specially after the 1000 dollar fine for discharging a BB gun within city limits. Like just fuck my life


No snowboarding this winter

Cool, well I went a head and got last years Jamie Lynn classic and some 13' flamingo cartels to seal the deal! I think the classic is very close to this years BG. I think it will be a good comprise for me. Excited for the new season and hopefully lots of good snow and powder! Thanks for everyone's input!

Nice. Yes, last year's Classic should be pretty similar to the BG this year - a little wider at the waist so not quite as quick edge-to-edge and a little less lively/more stable.
