In the park, the pop is insane front and rear. You can't go wrong with the Custom. It's been around forever and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
Long days on the hill, short days on the hill, terrain parks, steep lines, fresh snow, and those days you can't stop high fiving your friends.
With the Flying V it will be a little bit more playful than the Camber version but this also means it'll be more fun to ride in fresh snow.

Jones Mind Expander Snowboard · 2022
Riding pow! But it handles everything well. It's got "surf rocker" to floats on the deepest days, but has a short sidecut so turn initiation is pristine and it wants to carve hard. Performs well in soft and hard conditions alike, with a super surfy feel.
All =-mountain freeriding with an emphasis on powder float and very nimble. Will get you to any freeride destination on the mountain other than maybe the steepest and harshest of runs. Also just a blast to play around on and ride.
Powder. This is a freeride board for when you know its dumping. Still flexible enough to feel comfortable in the trees but its going to give you a whole new perspective on powder.

Solid deck for progressing on, with its flat profile, you'll get a catch-free ride so you get tons of room for freedom of trying new things and keeping your confidence levels up! The softer flex gives you a ton of opportunities to get jibby in the park if you so desire but keeps the ride as a whole, mellow. Not much this deck won't be able to do all over the mountain.
Burton Free Thinker Snowboard · 2022
Freestyle, all-mountain, and freeride-oriented. True twin so it will ride exactly the same either way. Traditional camber profile gives it plenty of pop, stability, and edge-hold.
