The Forum Raider Wide Snowboard hooks up big-booted riders with more pop on the kickers and a slightly directional shape for flotation in the fluffy stuff. Whether you like to spend time on tabletops, parking lot rails, or in the pipe, the Raider Snowboard’s medium flex ups the fun factor. Forum shaved this board's weight by using a tip-to-tail poplar core, so you can easily squeeze that last bit of rotation from your backside 540. The Raider also includes an easily maintained P-Tex 4000 base to save you repair time after a rail sesh.

So is the board pretty good on flex or would you have to really work it to get that nice butter?
its a medium to stiffer flex... If you've got the power you can make it bend!
It may take a lil' work, but it will rail turns!!!!
If you want to butter it up, i would lean more towards the Destroyer or the youngblood.
It handles powder, grooms, and park with ease. The medium flex still gives it plenty of pop. The sintered base lets you cruise with even a minimal wax job. I have the longest model at 163, and yet I feel I have the control of a board 10cm shorter. With limited selection of wide boards available, I am not the least disappointed in this one, and look forward to a great season.

which board is the most stiff out of the ride fleetwood, nitro misfit and the forum raider?
I don't know about the other two decks but the raider is on the stiffer side of the spectrum. sorry i couldn't be more help.

what is the Gnar poplar core material? and how much flex does this board have?
The core is 100% wood, Poplar wood. Gnar means it has our grain-belt technology. Grain-belt gives the board 10 times the strength and durability along the edge from contact point to contact point. Check the picture our to see further details. It has a mid average stiff flex to it. If you are a bigger guy, the wideness will be great for you.
nice, I am 6'1" so the wide is so nice. So with the mid average stiff flex I could butter pretty easily?

The International Shipping System of Backcountry is not that good...I´m from Argentina and from the 4 times I bought gear from them (paying a really expensive Express UPS Shipping, almost the same amount of money I payed for the gear), only once the gear got on schedule. I ordered this board on March 5th, and took them 4 days just to send it from their warehouse to UPS USA for shipping! I payed U$S 165 just for the 7 day international shipping and still waiting, in UPS they say that perhaps it will get here on March 16th.
Probably their shipping inside the US is reliable, I really can´t tell, but if you are an international customer I would recommend you to check how trustworthy is your local UPS before buying anything.
Not bad, for us big foots
Finding a freestyle board to fit a size 13 is hard, especially when your looking to go 160 and south. This board is everything the big footed freestyle rider is looking foor. Its got plenty of pop and great flex but stays firm on the rails. Can't attest to the toughness as I've only riden it twice but overall I recommend this board to any big footed freestyle rider. It gets the job done.

how long will it take top order it from u if over two weeks than no deal
If you pay for fast shipping, you will get fast shipping. Even the slowest option is 14 days maximum, and I've never had that take longer than 4.

I have been snowboarding for about 2 years now and I am fairly decent. I was looking for a lighter board and a freestyle board. Would this board be a good choice and what size should I get if I am in the market for a freestyle board. I am 6'3 165 pounds and wear a size 12 boot.
I am just about your same size but my feet are 13, I went with an o-matic board 2008 awesome model 158. The board are about the same size. I love that size for powerd days but I wish on days when I am in the park I had the 155. If you mostly just do the park I would go with the 155 but if you want a board that can do everything 157.
