Jibpan is a super fun ride and I can't wait to get mine next month. I've had some serious fun on that board riding trees at Beaver Creek, doing laps in the park at Breck, and jibbing my ass off at Keystone. For being a high end park board you can ride it all over and not worry to much about it.

Cool man because this board is going to see a lot of the ridge and lift 8 at Loveland not to mention a Wolf Creek/Monarch trip. I'm stoked and can't wait to have mine.

Is it going to get a lot of pow riding, I mean if you're doing a vast amount of pow or dropping lots of cornices you might want to look at something a bit more stiffer.

Well Ive got 4 all mountain boards so if its unmanageable I can always bust one of them out, I do see powder more often than not though. I just want a centered stance and a true twin board to finalize my little collection and to progress my riding.

^ Sounds like a plan man if you got a quiver do it up. I was unloading a bunch of K2 stuff in our warehouse today and just started drooling over the jibpan.

I wish I worked around a warehouse full of snowboards I could probably live with being fired if I got a free jibpan out of it

Its stiffer in the tips and tail with a slight bit more play between the feet. Has better pop and dampening.

I won't be hitting a ton of rails but want to work on my spins and my switch riding this year.

The Jibpan is basically the www on steroids. Its got carbon stringers throughout giving it a lot of pop. Its got a sh!t ton of effective edge since its got that whole jib inspired thing k2 does (shorter nose and tail with more effective edge). with more effective edge, you get to ride a shorter board with the control of a longer board, it feels awesome. AND, the jibpan is tapered at the nose and tail making it easier to spin. and my buddy delamed his graft last year.
is this review base on this year's model? i'm thinking about getting the k2 Jibpan 07/08. i don't think it has the same tech as the 09. can someone tell me if this is true...i need a freaking board..

This seasons Jibpan has jib tips in it and a slight tweak to the flex pattern. The one you're looking at has the regular tips.
