    Posted: Feb/01/2012 at 1:11pm
Hey guys, i bought a new burton hero, 2 years ago, its a great board with the excpetion its a rocker, doesnt not hold an edge at all, and has the est system which causes the bindings to slide all around, i can never keep my back foot at -10 degrees. its constantly moving. So im looking to buy a new board now, what type of board should I buy? I ride only park, jumps and rails thats all. so im looking to get a good ol cambered board once again. The brands ive heard are nice are, Capita, Ride, and Forum, but im not sure, so let me know your thoughts.

Cambered boards will have good pop.. How about the Capita Totally FK'n Awesome.. its a Hybrid Camber. Positive in the middle.

Question though, if you only ride park, jumps an rails why is edge hold so important?

Glad to see that I wasn't the only one that wasn't stoked on the Hero. I had the one from the first season it came out. It wouldn't hold an edge well for me and seemed to be really catchy at times, even with a slight detune. I only rode it twice before selling it.

Anyways, a little bit of self promotion. I have a new Capita Indoor Survival for cheap.

alright thanks guys, im gonna have to find the right one, the nitro boards look good and the capitas look good too, friends got a capita and its sick, but also i just like the cambered board that holds an edge for when its icy and other stuff, its just nice to be able to grip the snow and ice without sliding out, the rockered board is good for buttering and that stuff, but just not my thing, its pretty icy most the time where i ride so cambered is the wasy to go

i've picked up the capita scaremaster recently which apparently is almost identical to the stairmaster apart from the graphics and I love it. Rides amazing down the mountain, lets you carve tight turns at high speeds with very little chatter. Also with the board ive been able to try new stuff in parks that my old board would not be able to handle. I'd recommend looking into the board

i got the nitro team (back when they were still extruded), and its fairing well so far. moderately stiff traditional camber board. excellent stability on landing jumps, but a tad stiff for the board presses

The Capita Quiver Killer is a cambered board, but it's more geared for all mountain and less for Park. Last year's Forum Destroyer came in a cambered version and a chillidog version, but I'm not sure of the current 2011/12 model because it has hybrid tech. The cambered Destroyer would be my first choice.
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

Have you checked out signal snowboards before? They're a cool little rider owned and operated company that has a factory in socal. Look at either the OG or the park board. I have the OG and it's prolly my fav board of all time.

Hi PowderMonkey,

I never knew SignalSnowboards were made in the USA, thanks for the heads up.. the OG looks nice and you can mix & match sidewall and tip and tail fill colours too!

Capita Outdoor Living! its about a flex rating of a 5, cambered board its gonna be super poppy for those jumps yet flexible enough to handle jibs. keep in mind though this is an "all moutain freestyle snowboard" so u can ride this board wherever u want! but if ur looking for just a jib and jump board i would have to agree with 2zz rome artifact and the capita stairmaster are some sick decks for park!

im dealing with the same situation. Having a hero makes me want a quality camber or hybrid camber board.

Im looking at NS proto CT or Heritage, Lib Banana Magic or TR pro, ROME MOD or Agent, GNU Danny Kass, or Burton Custom or X.

Also have heard some good stuff about Bataleon. What's the best way to narrow down the list. who has gone to demo days? what is the process? They are all similar in tech and price 500-650ish. Im thinking i would like a true twin centered stance because i would like to be decent at switch. I like the rail yard a little but mostly want to hit kickers and be able to drop at vail.

Proto CT would be great if you're insistent on the center stance true twin and want one board for everything. The Heritage is markedly more aggressive, poppier off jumps, and a bit more stable, would probably depend on what you want.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

Honestly, my advice is don't worry about it, just get a quality board from a company with good customer service. I used to demo as much as I could all the time and honestly at a certain point, it just gets to be a chore and you start overthinking things. I've never disliked a board so much that it kept me from having fun on the mountain. Just ride, establish preferences, but don't overthink things.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

The signal OG jake looks like a pretty good board i read up more on that and its just what i want. And id probably throw on it some Flux RK30, people say those are the best bindings for the price, my friends all ride flux and love them
