All I need is my Burton Performer, any conditions anytime. Does anyone know where I can get some Sorel inserts?

Pass it!

I have two boards as well:

K2 Turbo Dream 159
Lib Tech Attack Banana 157

My K2 is my pow dominant board
and I bought the Lib Tech for $200 cuz it was returned slightly used, so that's my park dominant board to fuck around with and practice jibs and such with

I have a couple boards in my quiver.
Currently using:
10/11 Lib Dark for all mt. use and powder
11/12 Signal Park Flat for park use, mts without much verticle and riding with slower/newer riders

Others:
09/10 Gnu DK now used primarily for ealry and late season rock duty
08/08 Nidecker Megalight was used as a powder board, now it just collects dust

Want:
NS or Mervyn split
A true powder board for when I finally get to Japan

Funny this topic is in the recent threads; I wanted to ask a question but didn't want to start a thread for it.

I have one, (159W Flow Infinite) It is an all mountain board, small setback, I got it a bit short for me to be more playfull (6'2''-6'3'' 200LBS) I dont care if I break it, fuck it up or anything, they are cheap.

I started venturing into the park more and more.. Should I get a board with a center stance to hit the park more with? I do fine as is, but would I gain alot being centered?

Thanks for any input guys

Yes, there's a noticeable difference (especially when you're learning) between a true twin and directional stick in the park. That inch of setback and the directional flex can easily be the difference between riding out that blind switch landing, and losing a few teeth.

Thanks for the reply man, you made up my mind. I'm going to look for a 158-159 twin!

I prefer to just have one board I feel really compfortable on. No excuses for riding bad, switching boards through the day, getting used to the other board etc. or having to haul multiple boards with me. I have a Ride Kink 157 and it's perfect. Honestly I don't get many 5' pow days but I have ridden it in sick pow and I was just fine, it's great at high speeds and it's amazing in the park. Also I don't baby it, the first day I got it I was on handrails, I don't worry about roots and rocks, it's more fun to just ride... if it eats shit then it's time for a new one. My friends are like "no I don't wann go there my board" or "no I don't wanna hit rails my board" blah blah... just go ride lol.
