I have ridden on I think its like a 2002 CWB Pure board for the past couple of seasons. I like it but now that I am starting to get a little better, I am having serious issues landing my inverts. Whats just a good all around board that is sick on landings. I really dont have enough time to go out and try a bunch of boards...any suggestions?}

I would go with a CWB Absolute its a good all around board. Good for inverts and spins. Substance is a good board also but it lands a little hard and can some times buck you off balance on landings. One more thing is best thing to do is demo demo we all ride different.

I don't think your board is what's stopping you from landing an invert.

You might be right, but I really do feel like the pure board is not forgiving on landings at all...just looking for a board that might make them a little softer

If you have been on the pure and transition to the new absolute shouldn't be bad. Still made by cwb. If you want good landings go for a little longer board.

I dont think anybody made a soft landing board in 02. Try an 05 or 06 Marius or Trancend. or for that matter an 05 or 06 Absolute. They all have soft landings.

The Pure's have always been dope. I'm riding the '06 now. They are just older Absolute's with new graphics. The Pure, Flame or Absolute will be easy for you to transition to. IMO the newer the Absolute shape the more the pop goes up instead of out. They have gotten slower and poppier (is that a word) over the years. The year I went from the '05 Absolute (liked that board a lot) to the '06 Absolute Plat (liked that board better) to the '06 Pure (loved how fast it was). They have all been great boards.

Also for honorable mention: the Substance is sick as well, but lands pretty hard.

Maybe your board is too small for your size. Bigger board=softer landings. Simple physics
