I've picked up a dirt cheap 149cm 5150 amethyst last year since I didn't want to spend on rental and I wasn't sure if I was going to learn/like snowboarding. Well I LOVE IT and it's time for a new board.
Here's what I can/want to do with it:
1. all mountain - eastern side of US so well groomed mostly
2. no park for now
3. I don't think I'm a beginner since I can do any trail and will take a small jump here and there but I will fall on flatter parts ( I dunno if it's my board or me but I'm on a true camber). Not afraid to go faster either.
4. I'm size 9/10 woman, 5'8 and 128 lbs
Budget is up to $500
My friend got the gnu b-pro and she loves it but she's must better then me so I figured I don't need that much of a board? any advice?
Thank you for your time.
