Ride Buckwild vs. Arbor Coda vs. OTHER SUGGESTIONS
I know everyone loves the buckwild in the park, but I'm a pretty even split between woods and diamond groomers vs. easy trails for screwing around and park runs. What allmountain parkish boards will perform best on those diamond runs with some satisfying carving and speed? Especially helpful if you've actually ridden it. Also how does the coda work in the park it seems like a kinda weird board but potentially really cool.

Also I am 6 feet, 185 with size 11 boots. Should I go 159 or 157 on these?

Note: I am east coast so the only powder I see is in the woods really

SUGGESTIONS OTHER THAN THESE TOTALLY WELCOME, especially something very similar to the forest bailey space case (it doesnt come in my size as far as I know. looking for a last year model.)

I'm your same size and just bought a Lib Box Scratcher which is just amazing. Check out some reviews. Won a good wood award this year. Holds a tight line on groomers at fairly high speed (65km/h), lots of flex and park orientated (hence the name). The one I ride is a 154 and it is plenty big. My all mountain charger - Billy Goat - is a 159. I barely notice the difference in length when riding.

I'm not sure about the other 2 boards but if you go to AngrySnowboarders site I am positive he has reviewed the Coda on a couple of occasions.

Good luck with your decision.

look into the capita DOA. a freestyle orientated board that can be ridden all over the mountain. camber underfoot for a nice edge hold and carve with rockered tip and tails for versatility. they put a sintered base on it this year as apposed to last years extruded. they come in wide range of sizes too.
