I´m looking for a new Board and I´m a bit confused when reading all the manufacturers descriptions.
What I´m Looking for:
Board + Bindings with straps and toe strap
BoardSize: 149 - 156 cm
Weight: 76 kg / 167 lb
I´m 169 cm / 66.54 inch / 5.54 feet tal.
My Bootsize is 43, I wear Forum The Kicker, 305 mm / 12 inch length and 130 mm / 5.12 inch width
Pricelimit: Not my first concern. I will spend more if i have to, right now i guess 450 Euro - 750 Euro for Board + Bindings
My Level of Boarding is good. 15 Weeks on snow. The last 3 years i go for 3 x 1 Weeks a year to the alps.
I like Going on the Track, offtrack for Powder or Woods (but not with walking, I try what is possible without taking the board of) and a bit in the park.
On the tracks i like to butter, spinning, manuals and jumps from and into the track - normal boarder fun stuff.
My current setup: K2 all access 2005 149cm with K2 Bindings.
K2 Access Snowboard Snowboard
I ride on Track as symetric as possible, Duckstance 15/15, and in Powder all the way back 15/15.
I think i would like to have a twin shape Board, for better spinning and Fakie-Riding.
But still it needs to work under the Lift or in the woods as well as on a good shaped track in the mornings.
I found the Burton Fix 2010 2010 Burton Fix Snowboard - YouTube
and the Forum Holy Moly I Forum Holy Moly - YouTube
- both very different, but i think they could fit.
The problem is i never rided another camber or rocker or other shape then my own. And it´s not so easy to find a Rental which has many different premium boards.
So maybee here i can find some advice - maybee someone has a style like me and experiance with some twin shape boards.
Thanks a lot already and hope to hear something soon.
