Thanks for the reply and for sharing that awesome vid. This is my first season learning and I've managed to progress to linking my turns on groomers/blue runs at squaw in tahoe. I doubt I'll be doing anything more than building on fundamentals next season or 2 so was looking for something in all mountain category probably medium-soft flex. Ride (and K2) looked like good options due to their rocker/flat tech etc. I've done a lot of reading and comparing other board makes and it seemed to me that Ride's specs were on the smaller side when it came to rider weight which makes selecting a board a little tricky (for me anyway). Guess I'm a little confused as to why they are on the smaller side. Apologies if that's a dumb beginner type question...
