I really dont care if you buy it but it just seems to me you should have a real good think about what you want in a board. Too many NS fanbois on this forum

I def agree with this statement I got the same feeling. I would love to learn to jib but to be honest with myself that will take some time to even get there so was considering an all mountain board that I could use as a pow board until I get good enough to hit the park. Idk just board shopping right now so been mixed in what I want.

Put it this way, you are extremely lucky to be one of the privileged who gets a chance @ one of these.
For the price you are able to get it for, why wouldn't you get one.

If you don't like it sell it

I can't think of to many other boards that go up in value the second you buy them.
I don't think you'll see to many of these on ebay for under $500

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Reptar,
Not sure if Boreal is the closest hill for you or not.
Reps is what will really help you more than a better hill to ride. The more time you can spend on the board the more stuff you can work on.
Our local hill isn't the best but it is close and gets me tons of ride time. My kids and I rode 6 of 7 days one week last year, that is a lot for us.

We then try to take a 1 or 2 weekend trips to a better hill and 1-3 day trips to a better hill.

Just my thoughts for ya.

If u want to improve fast and into jib park stuff, go to a hood camp for a week or two, windells/high cascade. You will get good coaching with vid training sessions, great features and get to demo abunch of different boards. Its spendy but getting a daily workout, encouragement from others and hitting a bunch of features/combos in 1 run will get you the time and experience back under you in a flash. My daughter when she was 15, she was a confident baker freerider but had no park experience and within a few days she was doing tailblocks, hitting 25' gaps in the jump line, spinning 3's, nose/tail bonks, no longer afraid to drop into the pipe and ollie over couches. Imho its better $ spent than buying an exclusive board...if your goal is to improve fast...its not the board, its the rider you got to invest in.
