Level: Strong intermediate
What's the word? I'm looking to build a quiver of 2 burton snowboards; one for crappy/icy conditions, and one for softer powder conditions. Since I don't live near (within 3 hours) of any real mountains a lot of my riding trips are contingent on time-off, I'd like to have the piece of mind of knowing that I have the right board for the conditions.
I went through the reviews section of this forum and will do my best to demo all of the boards that I'm interested in but was also hoping to get some advice from any of you!
I currently ride a 10/11 burton custom v 154cm that I'm selling because I believe I am too heavy for it. Chatters through turns like crazy even at lower speeds.
My riding style is more geared towards free ride. I have no interest in the park and prefer either to be making big carve turns inbounds or of course, the holy grail of riding POW.
Here's what I"m looking at:
Custom Camber 160cm OR
Process Camber 159cm or
Burton Juice wagon 163cm
Soft Resort days-Powder
Family tree Landlord 159cm OR
pros an cons from any or all of those boards would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I chose the sizes from the Burton size chart and based on my weight of 176lbs. Do they seem right-ish given my riding style?
