I have a year of riding under my belt and run a GNU BG for my groomer bombs, but I want to start to learn how to butter and take jumps, and possibly rails.

I currently have a 2011 K2 WWW, but was wondering if it is worth it grab a 2013 ROME Garage Rocker for $160 and sell the K2, or just stick to the older board and learn on that. Any advice would be appreciated.

BA is right. The rider is much more important than his gear. You can butter on the K2 you can hit jumps/kickers on the K2 you can do rails/boxes and all the other cool features on the K2. Buying a new board will not teach you the technics. Unless you just want a new board, the K2 WWW will fulfill all your desired needs. Practice, watch videos, practice, talk to people on the hill about it, practice and did I say practice. :giggle: Have fun trying and enjoy the rewards.

Lol. Me too. I use YouTube for almost everything. For example, changing my girls timing belt on her honda crv. It was very helpful. I also used it for learning how to do a method grab. Me and YouTube are about as tight as this stupid ass costume I bought for Halloween. :huh:

Haha nice. I remember back in the day when you had to read haynes manuals to work on your car.

I went from taking 2 hours to get down a green at keystone to making it without falling in 2 days just watching videos and reading.
