Yeah,its so obvious that I spend all my days on the internet, You must be checking in on this thread from your laptop on top of some 14er. And yeah,maybe you can show me how to ride "powder." I had suuch a difficult time on my last visit to AK. Jibbing is dead...barely exists in movies these days anyways. FWIW,i have slayed teeter totters,gap to's,rainbows,battleships,kink's,etc..on a Canyon and my NS Titan,no complaints. Def not my weapon of choice for those but like i said,who cares about jibbin these days.
Bottom line,you're not a small dude,you want something that'll hold an edge for your big ass,and Canyon's are genuinely not that stiff. If you want stiff try one of the Never Summer(FR) boards. And why not get something to progress into? You really think it's worth getting rid of a perfectly good 67 Canyon for some short,soft board? The difference in turning is REALLY gonna justify getting a new board?
But if you're a petite teenager,who loves spinning and riding park,takes his time(not charging it),and hates when your board actually holds an edge...then get a noodly,short board and have a blast. Or just get a snowskate.
