The pro’s choice for rail days.
When Eddie Wall and Nic Sauve head out for an urban rail sesh, they saddle up the Forum Manual Snowboard. Beveled edges keep them from getting snagged on rails and the poplar core softens the flex and helps the pros butter like nothing else.
- Biax laminates soften lateral flex to give this board a buttery feel
- Freebase for easier repairs if you slice open the base on a rail
- Tip and tail reinforcements keep you from splitting the board on the stairs
- Low swing weight for effortless spins

Um if i want a blue forum manual 2010 and it says "one color" does that mean i will get blue or pink. because i have ordered from 2 other companies and they both sent me pink. i would like a blue 159 forum manual 2010 can u help?
It looks like Blue is the only color available. Get it and if you don't like it send it back.
HITTEM WITH THAT FLEX
The flex is insane. I could push one end to the other that's how good it is. You can't go wrong with how well it works and how cheap it is now.
I'm 6' weigh 135, what size should i get?...
I'm 6' weigh 135, what size should i get? I will probably use it for a little free riding too but mostly park
Hey Ethan! My boy Travis is 6ft, 150 and rides a Forum Manual 153 for the park. Super smooth board with great feel. If you're going to do a lot of freeriding then I would get the 159. That would be a great all-mountain deck! Take care!
Freeride and park don't really mix to well with boards. It is hard to have one for both types of riding. Since you are pretty light you could ride the 150. If you think you will put on some weight then get the 153. This is a park deck for sure. Make to kill hand rails. don't get the 159. If you want one board for both. Check out the yougblood in a 154; http://www.dogfunk.com/snowboard/Forum-Youngblood-Snowboard/FRM0082M.html
Ethan, a longer board means more footprint on the snow....regardless of what type of conditions you are riding. The 159 will fit you, both for riding park and freeriding on the mountain. The 150 will be way to short. Children and teens that are 5 1/2 feet tall ride 150's. Stick with a little big longer of a board and you'll do great!
I weigh 150 pounds and im 5ft 9 wich size...
I weigh 150 pounds and im 5ft 9 wich size should i get
I would say the 153 for sure! 156 will be a little big for park ...unless you want to freeride on it as well than you could step to the 156
this board is made for jibbing and small jumps, run the 150.
i weigh 120 and im 5'5 what board size do...
i weigh 120 and im 5'5 what board size do you think will last me a couple seasons
Well put it like this, im 5'11 and 165lbs and I ride a 154(mainly park riding tho). So the 150 or the 153 depending on how much bigger you're gonna get, will do just fine for a few seasons. But if you are doin more pow and backcountry, then go for the 153. For an all arounder, go for the 150
This is a park board, not a backcountry deck. Run the 147 to get down in the park. If you want it for a longer than a year, then check out the 150. Really fun jib board for sure.
i weigh 110 will the 147 be fine?
i weigh 110 will the 147 be fine?
147 for sure! .. I would not go larger.
Manual is a great board to start ...forgiving for you...but it would depend on your height for the 147 but...with your weight you prolly be aight
Yes, run the 147, it is the biggest I would go.
i weigh like 138 what size id like 147 or...
i weigh like 138 what size id like 147 or 150 id rather have 147
I'd rather you have the 147 as well. It is a better fit for you.
do you send forum boards to norway?

If i were to get this board and i want to ride the park what size should i get? I am 5' 1, 115 lbs. and 9 and one half boot. would i have a problem with heel and toe drag?
You seem to be pretty small, I would run the 147. It is the best size for your weight.
this board is a great street board. great flex for pressn', good pop and low weight. the base is up to par for a street board and is NOT reccomended for resort and moutain use. if you want a great, street only board, buy this. burton missions = great combo (unless your boots dont fit them right)

which is lighter, the forum youngblood or the manual
They are pretty much the same. But the Manual is a tiny bit lighter.

hi i was wondering if the manual is a good jib board and if my size 12 boots would fit with a size 154 board thanks
It is a great jib board. If you are planning to use it only as a jib board in the urban arena then you have nothing to worry about. If you are riding this in the park then i would size up or run the wide.
what is lighter the manuel or the youngblood...
what is lighter the manuel or the youngblood and how big of a jump can it handle?
It is hard to say how big a jump is too big. It is made for rails and wall rides in the urban arena. If this is the only board you are planning of buying then run it everywhere. It will hold its own. You will have a great time of this deck. It is soft but will hold up on smaller jumps, around 30 feet.
This one is for you, Lyman, if you are out...
This one is for you, Lyman, if you are out there. My question is actually about the manual chillydog. I am currently riding the Wag 151...its super sick, but it feels really stiff (feels like a 6 to me). Any way, 99% of my riding is in the park, will the manual chillydog hold up on 40 ft+ tables?
I've said this before, it is hard to say how big a jump is too big. The limited manual is made for the streets. It is made for rails and wall rides in the urban arena. If this is the only board you are planning of buying then run it everywhere. I had one for a year and rode it all through the little parks at park city resort. It held up. I wasn't doing 7s or anything like that on it, but it worked just fine. the board is awesome, you will not be disappointed. Get it for sure.

i am 110 lbs, would the 147 be okay for me?
For sure, Run that size. You will be stoked on this deck.

i have a rome agent but i want something softer would this work ?
i always confuse the agent and the anthem, i think the agent is their jib specific deck. The manual will be comparable to this. It is soft and great for jibing as well as small jumps. The deck will hold up on those small hits so you won't wash out. Great board.
This will be softer than the agent for sure!!!
perfect for an insane jib and smaller jump board... good choice!
which board is better this manual or the...
which board is better this manual or the other manual chillydog for riding park i am kinda confused
if the size you want is available in the chillydog with pop then go with that deck. That is 2011 tech and you will love it. The same great chillydog rocker with the added pop to help you get your 270s out.

I just got a Forum Manual set up with these recon bindings for X-mas.
I chewed my Ride Agenda back into the wood from which it came last season.
Any possibilty of the Forum standing up better.
Also my mom (who bought it for me) was only asked about my height by the salesperson.
I am a skinny dude, so I ended up with a 156cm when I need a 147cm to properly load the board, cus I only weigh 135lbs.
Is there a possibility that the flex of this board will make up for my lack of weight?
The board is pretty soft. It is a bigger size than you should be riding, but it will be ok especially if you are growing. You will be ok with the size for this year. The softness of the board will make it a bit easier to handle. Have fun my man!
Just got this board a few days ago and cant wait to use it this weekend. Its flex is amazing compared to what I used to ride. The colours of the board to me are bright and stand out and the built in stomp pad to me doesnt do much.
Should I get this board or a 2010 burton...
Should I get this board or a 2010 burton blunt or hate im really confused on which board would be better for what I do. I do 20-40ft jumps gunna try to go a bit bigger this year im learning rails but I also do some runs.
All of the boards you have mentioned are jib boards. They will work on jumps but they need to be waxed for the conditions so you will get the speed to avoid the knuckle. All are super fun for jibbing, really soft and playful. If you are really worried, get the destroyer and you will be stoked. Great board for jibbing and jumping and riding powder.
So pretty much all the boards I listed would handle about the same?
