But these boards were flat on the tail. I really want to ride one of those. The brand most were riding was Kessler. I thought they only made Alpine boards but I googled them and they make boarder-cross boards too, very cool. They seem very specialized but still would be super fun to ride I think. Anyone been on one?
This are BX specific boards: blunt nose, stiff AF, big radius. Quite similar to alpine, but some differences.
I might go for Snowboardcross, just for fun next week: I got license for that year, and doing alpine racing, again just for fun.

You can try hitting the course on your regular board if you have pretty stiff board. Obviously, special board will be faster though. Biggest names are: Kessler, Oxess, SG and may be Apex.

I happened to be up at Big White after they had a race this weekend, and using the boarder cross course was amazing!
