I flex all my new boards ala AngrySnowboarder style before I ride them. I want them to get those knuckles cracked before I ride them.

Hey guys I'm new on here and have only just started to do some freestyle riding. I brought a ride dh2 a couple of years ago and have had a couple of weeks on it and am trying to progress. Saw this thread and was wondering how does flex testing help? Does it result in more pop? Is it something that's worth doing or will it not make a lot of difference?

Cheers for any help
Dave

You're over thinking this. It's just playing around with a new board before you can get to the snow.

There's only one way to get more pop out of a board.

Turn it upside down, heat the base with a blow torch, put a cinder block in the middle of it, jump up and down, repeat till you hear a snap.
