Looking for a new ride to play on . Im riding south east / WV mainly till my boys get a bit older so I want a board that is playful and good for butters .
310LBS Butter, I’m a big boy !

I currently ride a 172 Skunk Ape
But it just seems a bit stiff want a bit more flex . It really worried about charging much I’m almost 50

I’m looking at the LIB terrain wrecker
Think their biggest size is A 161W

Input??

Holy shit, 310? Nevermind, just get something wish rocker between the bindings period. Even something mid-stiff is still going to ride relatively soft.

oh yea!! been rocking 3billz for 30 years . Thought I might not want something super soft . I live my ape but with the length and stiffness I find myself not being able to get a lot of flex Over the nose . Better over the tail but really got to work for it .

Honestly, I'd get something twinish (true twin or directional twin) that's on the stiffer side of the spectrum. Not sure I'd recommend full rocker. My favorite butter boards are actually CRC boards. I like the camber in the tips for stability and the rocker in the middle to easily flex it, but that's just me.

The NS Ripsaw comes to mind as a potential good fit for you here. It's a pretty burly, stiff board but that's fine at your weight. Not trying to beat you up here on weight, just being realistic.
