hahaha, this thread will just NEVER go away...  some people will never grasp the most basic of principles about personal preference and will continue to spew the forums with nonsense.  backup your stance with valid arguments... don't just make foolish claims and expect people to listen for no reason...

The last post before your insightful post was 8/22/13, why would you drag this topic back up?  And if you are dragging up an old topic at least put some thought into your post.

This one's for you, manda:

Hey, I know this question is prob asked a million time. Im buying a GNU pickle but cant decide between a 150cm or a 153cm. Im 5"6 150lb and consider myself an intermediate to advance rider. I mostly do ground tricks and all mountain here and there. My current board is a 151 Reverse camber from TruSnow I need a board that I can get better. Should I stay around 150cm or go 153cm

The box scratcher is stiffer than the Artifact rocker...the Artifact makes the box scratcher feels mid flex.
I've the '11 Artifact rocker, is a noodle, will be great for parks and jibs. Newer models suppose to have more pop.
I've been told that the K2 WWW offers similar flex as the Artifact but rides better.
Signal park rocker is ultra fun too.
If women's boards fit you, you'll have more options.

The Artifact is a noodle, especially the rockered version. If that's what youre looking for, it's perfect.

He's right; i rode a rockered artifact once and hated it. I sold the thing the next week. I personally like a mid flex board for any kind of riding. A super buttery board will make sticking bigger jumps a real pain in the rear, but allows you to lock on to rails waaay easier.

In return, a stiffer board will give you some jumping capabilities, but tends to slide off of rails easier.

Choosing a park board is all about preference. The place that I normally find really good information on is Transworld Snowboard, or even the Burton Good Book.

Every year they layout the best new park boards and the makeups of each of them. I think last years good book actually broke down each board and what it was best intended for in a big circle chart, it was pretty cool.

Hope I helped

Okay, bare with me.  It's this simple type of ignorance that just drives me absolutely CRAZY and puts me on these early morning rants.  First things first, there is NO SUCH THING as a PARK SPECIFIC board.  Remove that word (words) from your vocabulary.  You can take almost anything anywhere, and have a blast at the sime time.  Second, I know tons of people that prefer something firm, cambered, and sintered for park riding.  You can take the same shit to the stairset rails or the backcountry too.  DOESN'T MATTER.  If you blame the gear for why you can't do what you are trying to do, you should find something else to do.  It just shows laziness and an attempt to take the easy way out of everything.  Plus, you are missing out on the experimentation of trying new things in new places, which allows for variation making life exciting and ever changing.  Your loss.
 
Nothing is more annoying than ignorance and "advice" which covers the same overused and plain wrong generalization that everybody seems to be attatched to.  Think outside the box people.  The guys that are legends did not copy what someone else did.  They learned from other people's successes and failures and turned it into something that resembles a new distinct style/approach that is exclusive to that person.  As a result, they stand out from everyone else in the crowd.  Try these things.  They not only will make you better at what you do, but will also make life more exciting.

I got the Ride Kink to replace my Burton Hero and the slime walls on the Kink make the board so much more forgiving and it can take a beating on rails and jibs.

Depends on your skill level which board would be good for the park. I personally am nothing special on the board so a nice soft reverse camber has helped me with my jibbing and pressing. Lots more fun than a stiff Burton twin I used to ride

I've been on two boards the last 2-3 years, and they've done the job for me.  Quivers do make a difference, but like many people, I am not an endless bank account.  Last time I had 3 plus snowboards was like 4 years ago.  Ever since then, been doing just fine with what I got.  I'm sure I would do perfect with one as well, but its always fun to have something that feels and rides a bit different.

any board with a decent amount of flex, when youre looking for a board online, in the description it should give you a rating of 1 to 10 on its flex. mine is 5 and i love it. also youll want some boots with flex or it will kill your feet and ive heard dc park boots arent very good

I have a burton hero for rails the thing flexes like a MOFO, but I just ordered a Ride Kink on Thursday. after 3 years of researching boards I figured that it suits my style and preferences the best. Flat Camber, Medium flex, park oriented, handles jumps and rails, doesn't have a "channel", and was cheap.

iv riden many boards including burton hero, pbj, flow, era, but my favorite had to be the capita horoscope. It was a perfect park board. Nice flex, great pop, easy to butter and press and still great on the jumps. I would recommend it to any park rider.

I have a burton hero, it is really flexy and fun to play around with. You can literally butter around the mountain the whole time. It is reverse camber but it gets a lot of pop, almost like a cambered board. It rides equally switch and regular. Great park board you should really check it out.

FWIW. if you need to even ask "how do i choose a park board?" or "what board for park" I'm thinking you should just stay out of the park until you learn more about yourself as a snowboarder.
Riders that usually ask these questions are 99.9% absolute noobs and couldn't tell you their preferences if their lives depended on it.

I would definitely lean towards a nice, flexy board. But that is if you are into jibbing and rails. If you are more into big airs, maybe something a little stiffer would fit your preference.

@JBburton 18

to pull of them big kickers you would need speed would you not? so you would recommend him a slightly stiffer board for it and not a noodle. cause a noodle would give you less stability when speeding. sure you can do it but don't recommend it.


would you not want something that can absorb your landing on a rail? or would you rather have a stiff board to learn off of? you'd definitely whip out easier on a stiffer board.


just cause you did it doesn't mean it was right or everyone should learn it the harder way. there is preferences when you board. once you're a "pro" at it then any board will do. but there will be a better option to use still.

Im thinking about getting a new board mainly for the park but also good to free ride on. Ive been snowboarding for 3 seasons now and im not looking to spend under 300 for a new board. Any suggestions?

But what you do with a short and soft board on big kickers?

Although I am in agreement with your posts on here, I must say this:
If the guy had to ask the question, then we can all assume he is a beginner or fairly new to snowboarding. Now, I have no doubt that an experienced rider can shred on a "non-typical" park board, but the OP obviously has no idea what his preference in a board is. With such a general question, you have to give him a generalized answer. And YES, I would say that the typical park board these days is a short, reverse camber, flexy board. That just seems to be what people are riding for whatever reason.

I would say that if you can't get out to demo's, just to read reviews and pick something within your budget that you like. In the end, its all about the rider. There isn't a board out there that is going to make you 100x better as soon as you strap in.
