Peanut buttery jibbing goodness.
The DC PBJ Snowboard (Park Board for Jibbing) certainly lives up to its name. With a medium-soft flex and slightly rockered Anti-Camber shape, the PBJ was made for destroying every rail in the park. But the same way those evil scientists mixed up the animals on the graphics, you too can shake things up and take the PBJ all over the mountain.
- Anti-Camber gives you a long, stable flat zone between your bindings, and rocker at the tip and tail for a playful, forgiving board that also floats in pow
- Camber Core uses arched fiberglass and wood in the Anti-Camber zone to add pop and stability
- Biax glass provides a loose feel
- Astro Core is wood reinforced to keep it buttery
- True twin shape lets you dial in your switch tricks
- Structurn base uses golf ball-like dimples to break water tension for added speed
- Extruded base is easy to repair after a rough day in the park
- Note that every size board depicts a different graphic, so if you order the wrong one don't come crying to us

Park Board for Jibbing.....Yup
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This board is great for what its made for. Its a park board for jibbing (PBJ). If you're gonna take it easy and have a mellow day on the rails and boxes, then this is the board to head out with. Its definitely not as stiff as a 5/10. Id say closer to a 3.5/10 but it does have a good amount of pop for a board this loose. Its more suited for getting on high boxes and rails rather than hitting some of those park booters. You can air it out a little but anything big is going to be a rough time. Ive never had a board that is this good on rails/boxes, flatland and small kickers/launch pads. It never hangs up and is super forgiving on spins. Its a great board but dont try to air it out or take it on any bomb runs
Great quality - just as exprected
awesome board with terrific graphics! mine is 157 with snow owleopard!)
couldn't be more happy that i chose it)

If I'm 6'1 and roughly 165 pounds, would a 149 be a good board size to ride? How would everything be affected? Tricks? Turning? Etc etc.. Last season was my first season snowboarding and I want to stick with it.
A 149 would be a little short for you. I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs and have boards ranging from 145-154. For your height, you should be looking at a board of at least 160 cm. (http://www.evo.com/how-to-choose-a-snowboard-size-chart-and-buying-guide.aspx)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't base board size on your height as stated above by Laura. The board has no idea how tall are you, but your weight will play an important role, affecting the way the board's flex reacts. Depending on what you want to do, a 149 can actually work (in the park or on jibs for instance). Rule of thumb... the shorter the board the easier to handle and more maneuverable for park tricks, but the less stable at speed and bigger jumps; the longer a board the more stable it will be when you want to turn that thing out and will also create a more stable landing platform for bigger jumps. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule... and flex, sidecut radius, effective edge, rocker-type (in addition to length) will all affect how a deck rides.
Fun all mountain/park board
This is a pretty solid ride. It's a little heavier and stiffer than a few other jib-specific boards(i.e. my capita ultrafear). It does have a little more pop for jumps though.
Overall the riding is pretty damp. It'll bust through choppy snow, and give you a super stable ride through a fresh dump of powder. The flat zone between your feet give you a solid feel on hard pack and wont make every turn washed out.
If you're aggressive in the park, this would be a good jib board, for everyone else, it's a really versatile all mountain board that loves going through the park.
Forum Deck 157 or DC PBJ 157?? Help please!!...
Forum Deck 157 or DC PBJ 157?? Help please!! Witch one???
the main difference on the boards are there shapes. the pbj is a rocker and the deck is a hybrid. the pbj is going to be a great park freestyle board. the deck is going to be a really good board on the whole mountain. hope this helps
Its peanut butter jibbing time!!
THIS BOARD RULES!! Just picked up the 149 PB&J with the cat/hippo graphic off of whiskey militia for 179.99. I have dubbed it the HippaPussaPotamus haha!! The anti camber/camber core its a unique feeling on the snow. The board has a ton of flex and a ton of pop. The flat bottom between the bindings makes balancing on the rail easier than standing on two feet, Its like this board is connected directly to my brain. Could not be happier about this purchase. Im about to take this bad boy up to stowe for a week and put it through an extreme test. Ill write another review if my feelings change after that.
