Jibbing dreams do come true.
Based on Capita's best-selling men's Horrorscope, the Women's Space Metal Fantasy FK Snowboard is a jib girl's best friend. It has a buttery flex, forgiving profile, and twin shape to help you step up your freestyle game whether you're lapping the park or throwing down in the streets. The rockered portion extends from under the bindings out to the tips, giving it a loose, catch-free feel that's a blast to jib with, while a flat section between the inserts makes it stable enough to take through the jump line and stomp urban drops.
Form 6 biax glass gives it smooth, forgiving flex for easy turn initiation and tweaked butters and presses. Blunted tips reduce swing weight and allow you to ride a slightly shorter length than before. New this season is a RFS Sustainable Select core that increases strength and pop, yet still provides a smooth flex for tweaked presses. It's finished off with an HMC extruded base that's harder and tougher than standard extruded bases, and is still just as easy to repair after you ding it up.

- Q & A
Great for jibbing
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I absolutely love how this board rides, and I just placed an order for my second Space Metal Fantasy this season but there are cons to this board. Let me explain:
The extruded base sheet is pretty good quality, I am an intermediate rider who spends most of their time in the park hitting rails and this board is amazing for that purpose. The rocker contour allows you to re-adjust last minute when hitting a feature but the flat kick (the board is flat in between the bindings) locks in on the feature nicely and allows you to charge down groomers while remaining stable. I can be pretty rough with my gear sometimes and the base still looks great.
HOWEVER, the top sheet is very cheaply made. In fact, it started to chip around the edges from the very first day I started riding and I wasn't even hitting jibs that day, which wasn't a big deal to me because it doesn't affect my riding.
The flat kick rocker also floats nicely in powder. I paired it up with a pair of Union Trilogy bindings and I was flying through the trees.
This board however, doesn't perform too well in moguls or chopped up and bumpy runs as it is softer. You have to do lots of leg work.
tl;dr if you are an all mountain rider then you should look at other boards (Birds of a Feather is great one), but if you love jibbing and park and medium sized jumps (~30ft) then this is a good choice. It also performs great in powder if you don't want a dedicated powder board.

Bought this board for my sister for Christmas and she loves it. She lives in Michigan so she mostly rides park, which the board is really made for.
