Also, would burton cartels or union forces be a good match for this board? I assume they would be but I just want to be 100% sure
Yep, cartels and forces will be just fine. Assuming the cartels aren't ICS.

Its a 2011 board


I guess its doesnt really matter if I can ride park with it, I just want to make sure its not going to feel way too short and unstable when im going down the mountain, because I like to bomb runs a lot (although admittedly theyre short east coast trails)

Also, the effective edge of the board ive got now is 121.5 cm and the contact edge is 118 cm. The T Rice has a contact length of 118.5. This seems pretty close to what ive got now so maybe I wouldn't even notice the different in length too much


Also, for right now I dont have any intention of doing any jibbing, ill just be hitting jumps in the park, whether it be with the T Rice or my current board

The t rice handles large jumps just fine, jibbing isnt much fun with it though.

Im still kind of new to snowboarding so I wont be hitting any 30 foot kickers anytime soon, so maybe ill just stick with using the board ive got now for freestyle and use the T Rice for freeriding occasionally

Is it new or used? If it's new at $150 that's a steal. Even used, if in good condition, it's still a pretty good deal.

Yea its blunt tip and pretty stiff so I figured those two would counter the shortness of it.


I know that length would be good for freestyle though, so my next question is, is this boad any good for park stuff or is it way too stiff?

I feel like it's kind of weird, because it's short... It's meant to be pretty sick on the big kickers, but maybe the shortness/blunt tips will help on the rails/butters.

As long as you're not just buttering around, or hitting fat jumps you'll probably be fine.
Im pretty new to the park, so id just be hitting some small jumps mostly
