Thinking about which boards to bring for a trip: most stressful time imaginable. 

Posted by: @briandamage

So far I think I'm handling the stress fairly well, but it's early days. It must be hell for you guys with a dozen boards to choose from.

^^Talk of Japan trips in the Burton 2.0 thread got me thinking.... “new year; new you!”

It’s now 2020, and you’re going on a board’n holiday somewhere cool for two weeks... there will be pow days, groomer & side-hit days, and the usual mixed-bag of resort conditions. Park is there if you want it. It’s a good trip, don’t worry.

So, which two-board quiver do you choose?

Bonus points if you can pick only one

Burton Landlord / Korua Café Racer+ 

I obviously no longer care about riding switch.

Neat thread.

Burton Trick Pony (original FT model - until I find another poppy twin(ish) board that is as good in powder)
Jones Ultracraft (solid or split depending on destination)

This is sacrilege, but this is when I admit I've only been riding one board for about three seasons now: an older DWD Genovese. It's  all I need over here on the east coast and has served me well on everything for trips.

Currently in Europe, brought Venture Paragon and Burton Landlord. Both great. Having said this, I could have brought just my Korua Stealth and would still be happy.

Too hard... Probably a 159 or 162 PYL, a versatile playful enough freeride stick that holds and charges, and a Niche Aether 156 or a cambered mid flexing twin... If it was a new area for me, I wouldn't really venture into the park except maybe for a few jump laps. I'd rather get lost finding sweet natural spots, hike something that looks good and so on and the board would need to handle all kinds of pow, from trees to steeps. 

Maybe I'm thinking about this too sensibly. Feels tell me to grab my 1st year Kazu for everything besides low viz pow days and for those a super directional pow stick like the Mind Expander, though that one could snap and pop a bit more.

One board, I’d go squash 59 or 63, because I gotta have it.. and currently, #2 would be the hammerhead 71. Before I had it, I probably would have said fish 160 or blunt diamond 56

160 Deep thinker and 150 Bottom Feeder.

If I had to go one it would be a 162 Flight Attendant.
