it may not be fore everyone, but i'm a fan of /Bataleon/Lobster/TBT

i have an SL too for something i can push harder all mountain... keep that board!

maybe see if you can get on one of these for a few runs, they are the softer more jib friendly ones in the lineup, and most will hold down some big jumps too - with the exception of disaster/jib, which are primarily jib focused:

airobic, disaster, gw, fun.kink, lobster park, lobster jib...

Explain? It's my go-to board for most conditions on the mountain. Stable yet playful. Have other profiles but they don't get a lot of snow time.
Don't bother asking or explaining your other profiles...if you can't ride one board for all conditions, then you're a total dumbass...apparently, according to others. My quiver consists of 2 boards, and +1 is one too many! LOL

I'm a camber kid, I grew up riding it, and that's what I enjoy riding all over the mountain. The only rocker boards I have are for when it snows, and there's fresh powder. Personally, I felt it was too washy and not responsive enough, but that's just my personal preference. I'm not a fan of hybrid rockers at all. I think you get the worst of both camber profiles with none of the benefits of either, IMO. My buddy used to be the regional team manager for Forum, however, and he loved the DD. Just not for me. Clearly it works for you, which is rad, I just thought it sucked.

The cambered 154 Destroyer was so fun though, absolutely bomb proof and just crushed through anything. I really enjoyed the pop it had as well, when I was in the park. I'd really like to find one of those to have in my quiver/collection.

Personally I'm a big fan of Artec's Nima Jilali snowboard.

Nothing fancy, but its reliable, rides well, and takes anything I throw at it. On my second one because I liked it so much :)

If you really like it buy em up. Artec is done. And has anyone else joticed Nima rides his very old M4 more than his Artec Pro model? Weirdo.
