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.

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.
I had my heart set on a graft but just found a jibpan for $150. How do they compare. I don't want the softest board you can find but I do want a twin tip board with a centered stance and the price is right. I won't be hitting a ton of rails but want to work on my spins and my switch riding this year.
the graft is basically an artifact with some carbon and such, more comparable to the k2 darkstar.
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..
