Default This is it! New board time.

I have finally narrowed my list of boards I want to buy down to 3(maybe 5) and I was hoping to get some feed back from the good people this little forum.

Here are my choices in no particular order.

Lib Tech 'La Nina'
GNU 'Impossible A.S.S. Pickle'
Never 'Summer Raptor'
and the outsiders are
Capita 'Black Snow Board Of Death'
Yes 'Pick Your Line'

To finish this off maybe a little info of what I will be riding.
I live in Northern BC where we get a shit ton of fresh so I want something that will basically be a powder board, but if there isn't fresh it is cold and wind swept so I need something that will handle that as well.

I really liked the La nina i demo'ed a few years ago, it was just too expensive at the time I bought my powder board. It was fun because it felt like driving from the back seat on groomers and floated pretty well in powder, but not as good as the capita charlie slasher i ended up with. Was just a really fun directional board.

the PYL is at the top of my pow list to try, along with the K2 ultradream. i really think the wide shovel nose shape is the way to go if you want the best float.

If it was my decision.. I would pick in this order (of 3 of them)

1. Never Summer Rapor.
2. Lib Tech La Nina.
3. Yes Pick Your Line.

Wow. Helpful.

Yes PYL no question. Camber between the feet means stability through chop and rocker tip and tail plus just a smidge of taper means float in pow.

La Niņa instead of the Brando? You forgot the sick stick.

I am surprised there is no love for GNU. This was my number 1. Checked every box, is there something I should know about it.

Yeah, you should know that it is not really powder board - which was your primary requirement...
