So do you now 'officially' label the new Contact Pro as canted? Not baiting you, just wondering what the Union company line is now - believe before it was stated that the Factory was the 'only' binding with canting in the 2013-14 line-up. (FWIW, I am actuall quite partial to the the 'autocant' approach in the Contact Pro and Cartel.)
I'll go with a "no" on officially labeling the Cpro as canted.

Noted.

The natural canting on the base of the Contact Pro is more the direction we are headed.

Thanks for the feedback.

Personally I believe canting serves a purpose, but the consumer demand for it is the result of marketing. If we put canting on everything, we'd have a lot of pissed off pros. Also, guys like Torstein wouldn't be riding UNION for free.

For jibbing, rails, kickers you recomend a board like the capita ultra fear? Or do you have other options?

In regards to boards, I'd suggest the Outdoor Living for what you're doing. It's an all around freestyle board. True twin, flat camber. I love that board.
