bobsy852 Thanks for this review Nivek! I've had my eye on the Destroyer ever since I saw it! It looks awesome!! I'm unable to demo it though and as I've seen it advertised everywhere as being more an intermediate-advanced board I'm worried it's out of my league! I've just got into freestyle with ground tricks and hoping to start boxes/rails etc soon but I wont be taking on any huge kickers any time soon.
Is there any snowboard you could recommend which is similar that I may be able to demo instead to get a feel of the destroyer?

Matuuh I also tried destroyer double dog today, didn't really like it as much as Bataleon Evil twin that i also tried first time today. Some kind of weird vibration under the feet with double dog. Though it was quite fun board, i'd recommend but not as much as ET tho .

Good I guess. Theres a light tan, flat black, and yellow black. I think the tans look sick.

i gues my real question is if double dog rides similar to gullwing?
Closest thing to Gullwing is Flow's I-rock or EZ-rock. That said, for a 2012 board that will compliment your Sub well try the Destroyer DoubleDog over the Youngblood. Its a touch softer which really just means it takes less muscle to ride and pop, it felt damper to me too. Others would be the Signal Omni, Fastplant... I'll have some more suggestions in like two days. Flow has a new board that should be really good, its a touch softer version of the Quantum. DC also has a new one that almost all their pros have made their pro model, the Ply. Regular camber between the feet and then it kinda mellows out in the tips so more of your contact pressure is under your feet. Honestly if you want a really good jump board, get straight camber. More power, control, and pop.
