The T Rice isn't a park board. It's an all mountain twin with a medium stiff flex. It's better at high speeds cruising, powder, and off piste than it is at jibs. It'll do well on the jumps though....

I saw one a couple months back. I wasn't able to ride it because the rep I know only has one as a sample for the rest of the year until it goes into production, but...

You pretty much got the idea already. Whatever you can handle. The track sizes are creeping up the past few seasons so they're bigger than they used to be.

Looks like a normal plain piece of foam that comes in either a square with the middle cut out or a squared J cut from half of the square.

If they're so inclined why not ask around a town and find out if there's somewhere that rents splitboards? For those who are new it's a nice easy way to get out there and try something new and find...

My mom has an 08 RAV4 and my sister has a CRV around the same age. I prefer the RAV4. They drive similarly but the layout of the Toyota is better. I wouldn't be that picky about the handling in it,...
