Default All-mountain freestyle board

Hello,

a friend of mine is looking for a new board and asked me to make a new thread over here.

He is about 6'3ft and 185lbs, Shoe size 12.
He wants a board that is playful enough to butter around, hit side hits, jump off rollers and medium kickers in the park. Just a fun all mountain board that can be taken anywhere from slopes, to trees, to powder. Oh, and he rides switch a lot and therefore prefers a twin or almost twin snowboard.

His local shop carries Arbor, Capita, Ride, K2, Rome, Slash, Jones, Yes and Mervin.


Thanks in advance

I second what Nivek says and add- Ride Machete and Lib tech attack banana to the list, he will probably want to get a wide version of any of these boards besides the blacklist, probably all in a 157ish size

Because the Blacklist is the mid-wide version of the Westmark (same way that NS calls the mid-wide SL the Legacy).

If you ever want to load up your ollie before you let it snap off then -1 for the Attack. If you try and load its tips they just mush out.

I don't remember it being that bad, but it was a just a demo a while ago. I never rode the TRS; it should have better pop than the Attack Banana with the C2 camber. still, the other boards on the list are well loved, especially the blacklist

I cast my vote to the DOA, it was my all mountain killer last year and will be again this year.
