thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely take that snowboard into consideration, although i'm not too fond of the design on the top. What do you think of this board? Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2012 | evo outlet
it would come out to only 147$ with the discount. I heard good things about rome snowboards but it says its a freestyle board and i don't do freestyle. I only ride down the regular trails which are usually groomed.
