I'd have to agree that boots are the main reason he eats bumps the way he does.
I joke around with my buds sometimes, saying I could ride a 2x6 if I had good boots. & I believe I probably could if I had too.
Having said that, I've probably owned close to 100 snowboards. This is my 23 year, & I had a Burton hero last year. That was the best board I've ever owned.
Towards the end of the season I got to demo a rossi Jibsaw. I chose to demo this one just cause it looked so sweet, chainsaw with magna-traction.
I was completely blown away by this board. It was way faster, had way more pop, carved like a ginsu, & it didn't look fuckin' gay like my pink & purple hero with a seal balancing a beach ball. (I got a good deal, I had too).
I never rode the Hero again, I sold it before I could wrecked it. It had all the bells and whistles.
It's probably is not desinged for the same type of riding, (Rossi had magna traction & the Hero has scouped nose & tail).
I'm thinkin' that Rossi board he is riding, has alot to do with it as well.
I always thought Rossi was just a cross-over ski company, which I guess they are, but so is K2, Soloman,ect.. I even owned one a long time ago, but I can't remember anything special about it.
If any one gets a chance to try a new Rossi, do it, I think you'll like it.
