Ride on our ample-footed friends
Rome built the Manual Wide Snowboard for the big-footed snow-slayer with an eye on the entire mountain. This directional-shaped deck rocks a Pop Core Matrix to give you consistent flexibility and plenty of pop for your ollies and jibs, and the StraightBiax Laminate lets you dip into the park when the groomers get crunchy.
- Pop Core Matrix gives you a lightweight ride with a consistent flex
- StraightBiax Laminate utilizes 90-degree off-axis fibers for a mellow, easy to control flex profile
- Mountain Bevel brings plenty of power with enough bevel to eliminate catches

Would this be a good board for beginners...

Definitely a great starter to intermediate shred stick! Forgiving and directional equals to an awesome all-mountain board.

Write your question here...other sites say this is a soft flex board and some says its stiff. so which one is it?
Its stiffer than the Machine, whitch is what I ride, but is by no means a 'stiff' deck. It will allow you to bring it into the park, but definately excels in the pow, trees or steeps. I would say a little on the stiffer side of a medium flex. Flexy enough so you can press it out for jibs, but it will not wash out on you if you decide to take down that 20 foot natural drop. Rome makes SOLID decks, no matter what one you pick up. The manual is no exception. You can take this anywhere, but remember it is a directional deck. So going switch will feel a little weird at first. But it is definately a fun deck to play around on. But you will still wanna keep it mainly on the steeps and groomers. Hope this helps bro
also, does this have a sintered base,...
also, does this have a sintered base, because I use rub on wax and it doesn't seem to still be there when I get home and look at the base... or is the wax the problem?
Rub on wax only really stays on for a couple runs... you should use hot wax if you want it to last a wile.
o, got any good wax suggestions, cuz this winter i went boarding about 10-15 times and went for a minimum of like 4 hours every time.
Definately throw on some MAGIC GO-GO hot wax. You can get all kinds of different temp waxes for every condition. Best wax that i've used so far, and i've been through a lot of companies
Pretty Rad Board
So, I took this board out for a spin last weekend. I'm rockin' size 13 kicks, so I needed a wide ass board. I'm a big dude, too. 6'3" 200 lbs. My boots fit on this board pretty decently without having to duck my stance too much. I would totally recommend it to any monster-footed broboarder out there. Not a lot of flex, but that's fine. I'm not jibbing or doing much park riding. The graphics are pretty sick, too. The sidewall has these quotes on them that make almost no sense. Oh well, this board will carve your name in the mountain if you want.
