If you're consistently hitting 50 footers look at the Lobster Parkboard or Bataleon's Evil Twin or Riot. They'll be much more stable on landings and will help you carry speed for your take off. TBT is the sh!t. Word.

bataleon has their flex scale "backwards". 1 is a 2x4 and 10 is a noodle. check their tech specs on their site www.bataleon.com
The indoor is a really fun ride. The FK is fun when there's freshies but on hard pack/groomers it feels a little dead(like most RC boards). Stable on landings and presses nicely. It handles every part of the mountain with ease but I like it best on pow days as the FK fights for the top of the snow. Ride this on pow days and in the trees! I'd give it five stars but it just doesn't pop like a camber board.
Dogfunk didn't mess this up. Lobster and Bataleon (both TBT) changed their flex scales, 10 is softest. they figure if you lay the board flat and pull up on the nose/tail, the higher the flex, the higher the number. YEA FOR IT!
No reviews for the Airobic yet? Dag, D'funkers are missing out. The Airobic is the best park board on the market. Buttery with champagne pop! Handles presses but still stable for 40 footers (look at the riot or evil twin for bigger kickers). Jib TBT locks on rails and forgives you for under rotating that cab 7. Bataleon changed their flex meeter this year, 10/10 is softest while 1/10 is stiff. they figured more flex deserves more numbers on their scale, 7 is soft. Yea for it!
This board is going to be too soft for that kind of riding. This is a jib specific board. If you like capita and like to ride big then look towards the indoor survival, the midlife or green machine.
Go smaller if you're filming street parts. 151 will be so fun and it will be easier to jib making you look nice on film.
These gloves are so sweet! I ride the east coast so I've used them in 12 degree weather and 35 degree weather; both cases I've been warm. They're super waterproof, keep a low profile and definitely warm. Get yourself a pair before they run out.
I wouldn't recommend a rc board for those big booters. Check out the capita indoor survival with camber. But if you're throwing down like you say, check with your sponsors, they'll hook you up.
I rode this board all last season and will be again this year. it's stiffer than the artifact but it's nimble and pops like cooking bacon with no shirt on. if you haven't ridden TBT yet you're missing out. This board is a park killer but it will handle the mountain cuz tbt carves like a hot knife through butter. YEA FOR IT!!
