Catman So I think the older burton would be a littl better choice. The deepest I have ever been in was about 18 inches, and your right there is a lerning curve.

Incogneato i have never heard the term "less edge angle" before, well not used that way. when you tune boards you can put more edge angle on the edge if you want, but its not a quality associated with length of the edge
in general, the longer board will be better if the snow is deep, and you want to be able to have at least one more inch of nose than tail to help keep the nose up. if you guys don't have much experience in powder than almost none of this will matter anywayt, you'll be crashing left and right no matter what equipment you will be on, it takes a little while to figure out how to ride pow.

Catman The kink has less edge angle because it is a park board. Snowolf was saying you never know what you will run into so it's best to be prepared.

I was just wondering with what we already owned what would be the best one to take.

We don't have much BC under our belt so any advice is welcome.

how can the longer boardhave less edge? tip and tail lengths are pretty standard. the longer board is better in pow obviously, and edges don't matter in pow, why would they?

legallyillegal Whichever one that won't snap in half when force is applied is the better one.

Technine Icon Yeah Snowolfs right, but if your son is a good rider i'd say it'd be fine to ride with a park board. It's slighlty harder but by all means doable.
