Question All Mountain Board suggestions

Im looking for an all mountain board for a price of around $300 - $400 (not including bindings). Im looking for an all mountain board that i will use mostly on the groomers and a bit in the park. Will a small setback affect park riding?

I do live in Canada so last years gear is hard to get cause we dont have many big online retailers that still sell last years stuff.

- 130 lbs
- 5.6
- 9 size feet
- 16 year old guy (sry for not mentioning)

mOST private sellers on ebay will ship to Canada from the us. Does your budget including bindings? $300 - $400 will get you some good stuff on there

next week in Toronto boardsports annual swap is on - often good deals there.

120-130 lbs is a tricky weight, just out of kids boards but not really into the main range of adult boards (i'm assuming you're a dude). So you're looking for a small adult board, typically there's not much stock to start with but also not many buyers, so hard to say if that makes it easier or harder to find stuff.

Also watch craigslist and kijiji - where are you in Canada?

Where did you get this info about setback, not sure that it's worth seeking that feature; in any case you can make that happen by mounting bindings to achieve it.

I just picked up a 2013 burton cheetah 40% off at Burton Snowboards, Snowboard Clothing Boots Bindings, Burton Snowboard Shop, Canada. Based in vancouver, free shipping over 100 bucks.

Just placed the order so no comment yet on shipping speed, but they said it would just be can post ground.

Hi Jony,

A few things that may be helpful. Setback does not increase stability. It can help a board track better at speed and help the nose to ride up in powder or crud. That is why you see setback used for freeride boards etc, but the key here is "at speed". Until you are moving, a lot of setback is typically unstable feeling. For riders looking for easy going stability and the most comfortable ride, consider a centered Flat Rock board. Additionally, rider height is not a factor in board sizing (just weight and shoe size).

I saw it somewhere on the forums. Im looking at the K2 raygun and it has a .75 inch setback. Is it a good choice for someone riding mostly groomers and a bit of park?

A small set back will not affect your park riding. Especially if it's a directional twin. For your weight I would not go over 150. I'd stay near 145-147 board.
