Default Board Recommendations

Hi

I'm an intermediate level snowboarder and I'd like to know what board you think is more suitable for me. I mainly just cruise/charge down groomers most of the time with some buttering/jumps occasionally.

There seems to be a lot of hype for the Neversummer Proto HD on this forum which makes me really curious to type one but I'm also kind of interested in the Lib Tech T Rice. I snowboard mainly in Ontario/Quebec.

I'm 6 feet tall and about 215 lbs with size 10 boots

Given the riding you've described the t rice is not what you're looking for. There's lots of other options, but none I have experience with.

In order of increasing budget:

Burton process camber
Burton custom camber
Burton custom X

The more charging and less buttering you do, the further down the list I would go.

I only know burton, others can cover the rest of the universe.

Capita defenders of awesome, arbor coda, salomon assassin, burton custom flying v, K2 happy hour, ride buckup/machete, flow era, neversummer SL/proto, nitro team gullwing, Gnu riders choice, lib-tech TRS.

All these boards would work well for you in a 159-162 ish size range. they aren't listed in any particular order. My first choices would be the K2 HH, salomon assassin, or NS proto
