wanted to a get a soft board to improve at buttering. this board is certainly soft and has great pop as well on both nose and tail. however, ive always ridden rockers / rocker hybrid boards, and the camber shape was too catchy for my taste. the stability and control attached to the camber edge is nice, but didnt like the fact that it is so difficult to flat base right before a feature at the park. gets catchy really quick when you flat base, so unless you really know what youre doing, you might want something looser.

i would recommend a lib tech skate banana for someone trying to progress at freestyle. it is even easier to press / butter and much more loose when flat on the snow. you can try a lot more things without catching edges. only downside is it doesnt have as much pop as this board, but thats a tradeoff i can live with.

over the last 2 seasons i really struggled with boots until i got a pair of these. my prior boots were Ride Anthem, DC Judge, Forum Forumula, and these were my 4th pair. These are light, have good cushioning, have the right amount of support/flex, and heel doesnt come up. other boots were either too loose (Anthem), too hard around the ankles (DC), or too tight and would cut off circulation (Forumula).

these boots give a great accurate feel since they arent bulky, and do not bruise or cut-off circulation when you tighten them. theyre more of a freestyle boot, so if you focus on very fast hard carving on technical terrain and you look for a very stiff boot, this is probably not the right pick for you. if your focus is freestyle all around the mountain, this will be a great pick. awesome for practicing butters too since it doesnt bruise your ankles or shins from repeated tweaking around.
