Hello,

a friend of mine is looking for a new board and asked me to make a new thread over here.

He is about 6'3ft and 185lbs, Shoe size 12.
He wants a board that is playful enough to butter around, hit side hits, jump off rollers and medium kickers in the park. Just a fun all mountain board that can be taken anywhere from slopes, to trees, to powder. Oh, and he rides switch a lot and therefore prefers a twin or almost twin snowboard.

His local shop carries Arbor, Capita, Ride, K2, Rome, Slash, Jones, Yes and Mervin.


Thanks in advance

I second what Nivek says and add- Ride Machete and Lib tech attack banana to the list, he will probably want to get a wide version of any of these boards besides the blacklist, probably all in a 157ish size

If you ever want to load up your ollie before you let it snap off then -1 for the Attack. If you try and load its tips they just mush out.

I don't remember it being that bad, but it was a just a demo a while ago. I never rode the TRS; it should have better pop than the Attack Banana with the C2 camber. still, the other boards on the list are well loved, especially the blacklist

I cast my vote to the DOA, it was my all mountain killer last year and will be again this year.
Okay, it's between the Blacklist and the DOA.

What size do you think he should get, 157 BL, 158 DOA?

Also we cant decide between the two. I know the Blacklist is full rocker and the DOA hybrid camber, so the DOA will probably be more stable in general, while the Blacklist floats better?

Thanks for the awesome responses so far.
