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.
Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
