    Posted: Nov/02/2010 at 5:52pm
Ok guys I'm looking to get a relatively cheap park board to mess around with at my local mountain. I've been riding a long time but am just now getting into freestyle and am not sure what to get. basically i've been working on kickers and rails but I stay away from the pipe.

I've seen a couple options that look pretty good and wanted an opinion. My budget is under $300. This is what i've come up with so far

'10 Ride DH
'10 K2 WWW
'10 capita stairmaster
'10 ride kink
'10 burton dominant

I've found these either online or at my local shop for under $300. any info you can give me/ any other board suggestions is greatly appreciated.

thanks!

all of those are gonna be fitting for you.  personally im a fan of the stairmaster and with the new core they put in the 2010, its an amazing value.  the only one that stands out as being a little stiffer than the rest is the DH.  the stairmaster, www, and probably kink are the softest of the three.

ok one other question is the capita scaremaster the same as the stairmaster besides the graphics?

also can the WWW handle jumps or is it too soft? As much as i love the idea of a super soft jib board I wanna be able to hit some kickers too

thanks

Do you want camber or reverse camber?


Don't approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from any side..

i've never actually ridden a reverse camber board, so I don't really know. from what I understand camber gives you more pop and reverse camber gives you more flex? is that right?

reverse doesnt give you more flex, its just easier to get into a deeper curve because its already bent that way.

if you want a good soft jib board thats still stable and really poppy, get the stairmaster.  awesome awesome board.

the scaremaster was the same, but thats 2009.  2010 is an upgraded board and definitely worth it.  before it was just the basic select core, which was good, but broke down more over time.  the new engineered wood jib core is made of a lighter weight wood that has higher elasticity properties, meaning its more springy.. itll spring back better and for longer, and its also 30% more impact resistant compared to the previous core.

I ride the DH for jibbing and enjoy it for it's flexibility...mind you I'm more used to a Custom/Timeless/or stiffer all-mtn board.

I had a 2009 WWW 148 and, although I didn't ride it (too small for me) it was noticeably softer compered to the DH.  The Stairmaster I've heard is a an awesome jib board, no experience though.  Can't comment on the kink or dominant.

I had some problems landing kickers with the DH, because if I didn't land them flat, and land on my tail or nose, it would fold over and I'd fall.  With a board that's stiffer, I could ride out even though I didn't land perfectly.

Depends on the size of kicker too.  The DH held up well.  Nothing like 30ft kickers at Mammoth or anything.  Intermediate jumps were doable.


i've never actually ridden a reverse camber board, so I don't really know. from what I understand camber gives you more pop and reverse camber gives you more flex? is that right?


I see reverse cambers as two things (also agree with spenser):
1.  easier to ride with out catching edges
2.  easier to butter, because yout nose/tail is already lifted from the ground.

As far as pop goes, it seems like if you want a reverse camber with pop, you should go with a hybrid camber (flying V, C2, gullwing, etc.)  I wanted to get a Nitro Team Gullwing, but ended up with a '10 T Rice C2 for this yr.

Did you google it?

yeah i think i'm gonna pass on the dominant because i don't want to get a new pair of bindings for the channel (and i kind of disagree with the whole proprietary tech things they do with only burton bindings working on burton boards) my local shop has a WWW for dirt cheap so i'll probably end up picking that up.

i was also offered a 2010 capita indoor survival fk. it seems pretty similar to the other boards but is it significantly better/differet?

and thanks for all the help
