its hard to find that quiver killer. the fact of the matter is when you buy that board that is perfect for park, its really not that great for everything else. side cut and the bevel for a park board tend to be less drastic as a board that would be for bumps or maybe even carving. then you have the base, the core and even the kind of camber you want. all of which play into what you are riding. can you ride the same board on everything? yes, will it factor into your riding? maybe. if you know how to ride that terrain and your know how to ride the board properly, then yes, its going to matter. but if you are like a lot of riders who think they can do all this crazy **** because they've been riding for "years the right way", then its not going to impact them as much. the honest to god thing i would do is pick something you really like to do and stay with that, then if you really find something you enjoy then move into that until the board actually starts to impede your advancement. also, take a few lessons, and make sure to find the right teacher for what you want to learn.

well that sucks. at least shes going to get it when shes young and wont really remember it. you typically don't get strep that many times. how much power are you trying to get out of the motor? are you stroking it and boring at the shop or just getting it milled?

it blows my mind that more snowboards aren't wide. Are feet under size 11 really that common and the norm?

I have a wide forum youngblood that's barely "wide" and an old gnu danny kass that's as wide as my forum. Other than that I can ride regular boards without too much trouble.

Hey just so you know I'm not an idiot park rat or anything like that. It's just different strokes for different folks when it comes to board sizes and all equipment ultimately. I shouldn't have been confrontational about it especially since I do ride an odd size board for my weight.

Has anyone ridden or heard anything about the Capita Totally Fk'n Awesome? My Turbo dream from last year was literally my favorite board I've ever ridden, but I want to get back on a Capita cause thats what I can get the best deal on and I'm thinking of either going with the FK'n awesome, the BSOD, or the Ultrafear.

You'd think you wouldn't argue with Matt, I mean in the last 2 years or however this you've been posting in here you'd realize you're gonna get trolled no matter what. Strap your board to your feet and ride your board, but that's just me
