Hey friends,
I'm looking into getting a nice twin park board. I've been carvin' them groomers for too long, and have practiced vigorously in the park for the last couple of tricks. I'm looking for a sintered base, but extruded is perfectly fine as well!
5.7 height
140 lbs.
Now IPO bindings
thirtytwo binary boa boots
blah blah blah

also, how are YES snowboards? Their jackpot looks interesting.

Thanks!:bowdown:

I've gotta recommend the bataleon evil twin. It's my favorite out of all the boards I've ridden and demo'd. The newer ones have a sintered base but my older one with an extruded base rides great too. I'm not sure if it's that great with Now bindings, I think with those bindings + TBT the edge angle you have to ride at to carve might be a bit extreme, but I havn't tried the combo to be sure.

Are you mainly looking at jibs and rails or jumps?

I had a ton of fun on the Jackpot. Definitely a great option. Not sintered, but it really doesnt matter, the Salomon Sabotage is one of the best boards I've ever been on. Soft and playful but enough snap and stability for jumps.
