Wow! That sucks. At least you're receiving some compensation - that's probably better than 99% of people who have their gear swiped.
I ride the Lib Attack Banana (159) and I love it. It carves groomers like a champ, but it's playful.
I also love my Burtons. I had the Hails and now I'm just going with some '12 motos that I got new for $105. They offer incredible bang for your buck. Some gearsnobs will avoid them just because they're affordable, I think. But, they're so damn comfortable and the zone speedlace system is simply killer. I love them much more than my Salomon F20s or my stiffer K2 Boa Trackers.
