Just poking fun at the thread in general. I didn't quote you, I just happened to post after you.

Jcb890 If you're buying a board based on how often you need to wax, you're doing it wrong.

I just donít think itís a necessity on a board. Ex. Most of the GNU boards have sintered bases for some reason, where the Libís in the same "category" donít. That point taken I would choose the Lib over most GNUís even though the GNU has the sintered base. Does that make sense? If I had the choice that would be low on the totem pole for the reasons why I would be choosing a board. It's just my take on the matter.

Leo T.Rice all the way for the riding you do. The Banana Magic would be super fun if you love to carve it up as it has a deeper sidecut. T.Rice is stiffer and more damp though.

T.Rice will be best in the pipe as well. Everything you listed, especially considering you won't jib, screams T.Rice to me.

As for extruded vs sintered... Not all bases are created equal. Lib Tech makes great extruded bases, thus they are faster than the average.

Also, granted the slope is steep enough, extruded vs sintered won't really matter. The major difference comes in how they glide, particularly on flats. Extruded flat out (no pun intended) sucks on flatter terrain. Also in powder, sintered just feels better to me between the two when waxed. Might just be in my head though, but just my 2cents.\

And that "happy waxing" comment... YOU BETCHA! It's like yoga for snowboarders. Beer, wax, beer, scrape...

BTW, B.Magic has a more mellow rocker and camber. I like everything about the Magic's shape. Very fun to carve on.
