This board could possibly be compared to Burton Dominant, though it tolerates more weight, and should therefore not be as easy. Really easy to repair if something goes wrong. Well with the Forum Manual Snowboard you finally can. Side wall on this one really meaty, rolling through to really thin, reduces the swing weight of it. Very nice, soft, but not too soft.Next
Bottom line if your looking to ride park and rails day in and day out the manual can handle it, maybe even better than your aching body. Yeah, it really is though, all joking aside. Forum have got plenty of reverse camber true twins for you to choose from. Nice poppy neon graphic for the Rainbow-Brite in all of us. I give this board 5 out of 5 stars. Load up the increased surface area in the nose or tail for awesome ollie power when you need a little extra. The low swing weight makes it faster 270 on or off, while pre-ground edges reduce hang-ups on wood, metal or concrete and tough construction survives abuse from ledges, rails or tantrums.Next

If your riding is split between park laps and street sessions, the Manual is hereto join you. I really like it because it definitely got a super noticable rocker in it when you're riding it. The perfect board to split your time between park laps and street sessions, the Manual has a soft flex and forgiving feel of rocker with specific pop zones outside the feet and in the nose and tail. You can twist this into a taco or a pretzel and it keeps coming back for more. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
You got really, really reliable construction. Oakley makes a pretty solid goggle that has great fitting foam, really fun prizm lenses to look through and if you can get past the lack of quick change lenses they might work for you. Big and bright name-drop graphics make sure a Forum allegiance shows up in the money shot. We will probably edit out the last part.

Added pop gives you what you need to take on big booters without washing out on the lip and landings. This makes for a smooth clean board that will hold a grip. This is a great all around solid freestyle board. It gave you more of a performance shortboard feel in small waves. Shorter means lighter and in turn; easier to ollie. Also works in the pipe, but may feel a bit soft. It helps to add as much detail as possible, e.Next
