New Freestyle board!!! Which one?!!! Heeeelp!

Postby mathewb80 » Thu May 15, 2014 9:30 pm

Hi everyone!

For two years now, I ride with a custom board. It is beautiful but, I begin to understand its limits!

I would like yo change with a pro model!! I'm aware of several models and at the end, I would have focused on the Naish Monarch and the North Team Series.
I've got several questions:

1. According to you what is the best freestyle board? (wide open to considering others!!)
2. Why there is so much difference in price between North and Naish? which is the best?


Thanks!

North is expensive because it's North.

Monarch is a pretty good board.

I like the Cabrinha Signature XCaliber. Have ridden 135, 138, and 141 and all of them are fantastic. Stiff, big pop, and smooth landings for a flat board.

Check out the Axis Limited and the Crazyfly pro tour as well. Carbon is the way to go for freestyle. It's rigid so it gives you more stiffness and rebound meaning a higher pop. It's also super strong and very light - hence the increase in price. Good luck with your new board - whatever you choose!

holy shit, 1300euros for a board is insane. Is it laminated with bull spunk or something? mental.

Are you riding with straps or boots? If boots then the team series or something like the Airush Livewire maybe?
