I only go to parks (in Arizona, yes, we have snow), so I was thinking maybe a lighter, more freestyle kinda board, because I skateboard, and that is what feels familiar for me. I'd still like the board to feel controlled when I pick up speed, but agile when I'm going slow, which is often, because I'm not that good haha.

I was hoping to not spend too much either. I'm not going to spend over $300, and I was hoping to find one quite a bit cheaper, perhaps a 2014 model in the off season.

Thanks brahs.

Also, I'm 5'7, 130 pounds, and ride goofy.
look for a 2013/2014 arbor formula 148
I rode this last season (2013) model and was good to help me progress to the next level


they are reasonable and a good all around board
