Neither because they both have issues.

Do you have to get a ride? or can people throw other options your way? if so what type of riding and whats your price range.

Since we`re talking here about Ride Society, I want to know what would be better for all around freestyle and a pluss of speed with carving: a Ride Society or Burton Jussi both from 2008.

I have Burton SL-10 and Burton Triad to go with those. I heard Jussi has uneven flex and I`m a bit afraid to have a strange sensation while riding switch; also I`m afraid it will not hold as well at higher speeds since it doesn`t have the Xs of carbon in tail and nose. Plus I`m thinking society since it will absorb shocks better. So what do you think.

Guys pretty please help me out with this, I`m quite in a hurry.

I have a DH and rode the society and they both handled pretty well on the steeps and definately handled whatever I threw at them in the park. As far as if money is no object, look at a NS Evo, great board, had I not bought the DH at such a deal I would have gotten the Evo.

I rode the DH and thought it was a pretty good board. But in the shop I did like the Society more because it had a little narrower waist and seemed to have more snap to it. I only chose the DH because it was $100 cheaper.
