New Snowboard help
I am looking to get a new snowboard and wanted a little bit of advice.
First off I live in Australia and normally ride here at either Thredbo or Perisher and also Queenstown, NZ.
I would consider myself an intermediate rider who is comfortable on blues and blacks. I don't ride much park but I like to hit little kickers while I'm going down normal runs and I wouldn't mind starting to ride the park abit more because I do enjoy it. I don't really get to ride powder at all. I am 5 foot 11 weigh around 200 lbs and wear size 12 thirty two focus boa's.
I currently ride a 158W Rome Tour which I do enjoy however a few days ago I demo'd a Burton Custom Flying V 162W and found it a much more comfortable and stable ride especially at speeds but I felt it was just abit too stiff for my liking. So could anyone suggest a good board and size for me.
Some boards I have found that I like the look of however I'm not too sure are right for me are the Lib Tech Skunk Ape, Never Summer Legacy and Bataleon Goliath but I am open to all suggestions.
Please let me know if I haven't given enough info and thank you so much in advance for any help. Also price isn't too much of an issue because it will be a birthday present from my girlfriend and I will just chip in the extra if it goes over her budget.
