Stepping down from my Flagship. Suggestions?
I recently had surgery for a torn labrum and do not think I can handle or will enjoy my Flagship as much anymore.
I am am advanced intermediate rider that does mostly ice coast but I also do one dream trip per year to heli in AK or somewhere high up in the Alps. For pow days, i have my Hovercraft. I love that board! I also have lots of fun on my EVO, mostly on crappy conditions days and for playing around when i am giving lessons to family and friends.
I am wondering if there is something between the Flagship and EVO that I would noticeably enjoy on big mountain trips when there is more mixed crud than pow.
I am 5'6" and and only weigh 145 fully geared up. Truth is my Flagship was probably always too much board for me but it was too much fun to care.
Thanks for any ideas and suggestions. Peace.
