ONLy the new people who don't know any better or have bad friends ride burton. But it usually doesn't last.

Don't get me wrong burton make great board on the high end purposes like the family tree line and such just not mt. boards.

Jib boards any board would do.
Im not to concerned about brand names, about quality I'll be happy on a poplar core, wrapped in biax with metal edges. I dont buy snowboards for special tech that I dont believe in, The right price, flex, size & profile is what I look for.

I landed on this board mainly because of the price, it happened to have the kind of profle Im looking for and seems to have more of a softer park flex than the regular Process FV. Exactly what I was looking for at the right price.

I started this thread looking for opinions/ideas on sizing rockered boards not what kind of board to buy.

ItchEtrigR Took the advice of a few and just went with a normal size, figure if I'm gonna get on a profile for the first time might as well enjoy the changes and not compensate for anything by going longer. I went with a 159 Restricted Process Flying V X, seems to be a softer flexing version of the regular Process FV.

I have no idea what to expect except for the regular stuff I have read, shity edge hold, lack of pop, twitchy when flat and the teeter totter feel of too much reverse camber between the feet, sounds like a fun board

Just changing profiles is more the goal here, I read lots of good feedback on these forums from these profiles so i wanna check it out.
Consider something along the lines of an attack banana maybe? Damn fine board IMO. Slightly more all mountain than your run of the mill park board. Billy goat seems to be a big hit also, but is c3. Which would also be closer to the camber your acquainted with. And there's always the fan (forum) favorite the proto ct (rcr).

Mizu Kuma Rocker/Rocker Dominant Hybrid will lose Pop over a Camber/Camber Dominant Hybrid!!!!!

* Given that they are of a same/similar construction!!!!!

Rocker/Rocker Dominant Hybrid will be easier to Butter!!!!!

Mizu Kuma If you're changing to a Hybrid Profile, choose somethin with the same/similar effective edge, side cut, and flex!!!!!

That way you'll appreciate what the profile has to offer!!!!!

If ya just wanna change for sake of change, and wanna learn to ride a completely different profile, then go for the same length as ya regular ride!!!!!
