Ian G.wrote a review of Forum Contract Snowboard on March 26, 2013
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.
