Great looking boards, at a reasonable price...But they only come with camber between the bindings, pretty much the opposite of what I'm looking for

I rode this board for several days and it handled very much like my Neversummer Heritage. If that board is not exactly what you need, he will find you the best possible match within your budget and there is no tax ever and free shipping I do believe. The guy is I god when it comes to matching folks up with the best gear in their budget!

EDIT:

Ah! Here it is:

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/equ...en-valdez.html

Like I said, a $200 board that performs like a $500 one and has a 3 year warranty!!
Never heard of camp 7. The graphics for one, are a nice change to the gaudy and flashy designs I see on the vast majority of freestyle boards. I'm probably just getting old and boring, but I'm personally more into tasty 'low profile' aesthetics.

Most importantly though, the specs and review totally fit the bill, thanks a lot for the suggestion. I'm afraid the availibily in Europe might be a problem though...Right? Something I probably should've mensioned earlier: I'm in W-EU:s

So far, the smokin superpark is in the lead, dispite the hideous graphics and the fact that I might not be stiff and stable enough to be a perfect freeride/allmountain board. It's the cheapest allmountain-esque jib stick with magnetraction I could find, not counting the cheaper and less durable entry level boards in that category...

That's the point. It wasn't clear to me. You pointed this out, I re-read the OP and looked at it from a different perspective, and admitted the mistake/oversight.

My first reply to you wasn't pissy by any stretch, just an explanation of why I misinterpreted OP's request and a polite request for pardon.

If I seem riled now, it's because you continue this discussion as though that post never happened. Perhaps that was an honest mistake on your part and you legitimately didn't see or read my initial reply?

Not so sure after seeing this though:

Flow Era Flex Test - Board Insiders - What is the stiffness of the Flow Era? - YouTube

Srry, it wouldn't inbed for some odd reason.

Pretty stiff, very heavy. But than again, other reviews describe both the era and the drifter as not stiff at all
Either way, two great contenders at a VERY good price imo.

So would you guys say a Forum Destroyer of even a Smokin Superpark isn't worth the extra bones?
Bahaha boardinsiders. The only reason to do flex tests on carpet is cause you're doing online board reviews to get free shit. And that is why board insiders exists. To get free shit. They nearly never give anything a bad review, their whole jib board series 2 years ago was completely worthless, and the videos of them riding are just sad. Case and point, I own a park rocker, I love it, I've recommended on I think twice. They gave it "shred cred" of like 92/100 or something.

The Era is a do everything in the park twin that is just as capable outside the park. If you ride in the park as much as out then its a quiver of one. If it's more of a 20% in the park the Drifter is a better option.
