Looking to buy a new board this season, I was wondering if anyone had any info on any of the following equipment that I am considering.
I would say my skill level is about intermediate, but I am looking for a board that will help enable me to improve. I live in Ohio, so I don't get much powder action, most of the time I have to board on man made snow
(although I usually get a few trips in to Michigan, PA, or Colorado when funds allow
). I am looking for an all-around board. Good with rails/park/decent jumps, but can also hold it's own on back woods trails. I've got awesome Flow bindings that I'm pretty much in love with, but I'm getting new boots too.
My previous board was a Burton Twin 53, I am looking for a board within the 148-152 size, as the burton got a little clumsy when trying to rotate.
Okay, so I'm checking out the following:
Rossignol Temptation Snowboard
LTD Betty Snowboard Womens
LTD Belle Snowboard Womens
Lamar Henna Snowboard Womens
Lamar Foxie Snowboard Womens
Avalanche Bliss Womens Snowboard
Roxy Sugar Bunnies
Atomic Boards (Tika or Tuesday ?)
Obviously I don't expect anyone to know them all, but if anybody has any advice on any of these boards, or even the brands I'd really appreciate it!
All I have ridden has pretty much been Burtons, and I think that I've pretty much just paid for the name, I think I can find a better performing board for half the price as I'm in college and don't have tons of extra cash flow. Any help is totally appreciated! Thank you!!
Also, if anyone has tried the Roxy Boa's, was wondering if they were pretty good, thinking about getting new boots as well. Thanks!!
