Leo,

Wil you get the opportunity to test drive the Fastplant at your test fest? I haven't been able to find much info on the board, and I am interested in hearing about the bamboo core. Thanks

Looks like you have some good tips to get you started. Another thing I might add is to learn to ride your board flat and straight (just a tad on edge) and gradually gain speed. This will make you...

I would put the K2 Fastplant in the mix. It is also a rocker board, and looks like a blast in the park. Maybe the Parkstar as well. Not sure how soft you wanna go though.

I keep a 5th of Hot100 in my jacket for times like this. I call it my loose juice. Some may call it liquid courage. :D:D

I completely agree IslandCrow. A designed jump is so much smoother than trying to pull something off on a roller or a lip off of a box ramp. I used to hit the lips off of box ramps, but I soon found...

We have hit some record lows up here in the MidWest the last couple of weeks. The snow has been a lot harder the last few days. I would not say icy. Ice really only occurs if the snow has had a...

I appreciate everyone's input. Yeah, we pretty much screw around up here in MN 90% of the time. The runs are not long at all. My wife, friends, and I pretty much jib around on the hills. If we bombed...

I think I am going to stick to something hybrid. I think a 158 all mt board with the freestyle feel is what I'm after. I am adding the DH2 to the list though. Granted most of the boards I look at...

I found a couple of reveiws on YouTube on the DH2. I will add it to the list. I like the fact that the rocker isn't as extreme as other rocker boards. I did the plaid design.

If I found something with some tip and tail rocker I think I would opt for something around 158. The K2 Slayblade with the "flat base" tech could also be an option I could see going a little shorter...

What's powder? Yeah, no powder around here. I think I am going to hunt down something in 158-59 with some camber in it. Maybe a hybrid. I'm too afraid that reverse camber is going to have a lot less...

I'm 6', 200 and I was wondering if I can get away with a 158-ish board. I currently ride a 163cm board, but I would like my new one to be a bit shorter (hopefully making it a bit more playful, and...

It pretty much comes down to preference and what feel YOU want. I like a snug fit around the calf and ankle of my boot, but my toe box is usually relatively loose cuz I have a wider foot. This fit...
