I ride east coast were all the ice is at. I want to do more jumps and rails, so I want something flexible. Both boards are true twin, and both are camber/rocker/camber shaped. Right now on the Roxy website, I can get the T-bird for $300, which is the cheapest I have found, and I can get the Eminence on dogfunk for $323, so they are discounted quite a bit from the original price. I know graphics don't really matter, but I do like the Eminence's better.
