Which board should I get? Need help, thanks.
Hello everyone, I'm in the market for a new snowboard, I currently own a 10 year old board that I rushed to get when I was a kid and I kind regret not to research or wait a bit. I have a K2 Gamma (63") 160cm:, and I feel that this board is too big, heavy, stiff.

I'm 5'7", 168lbs, 10.5-11 ft size, I live in Connecticut and hardly will leave the state because of my work schedule, I probably will go about 5-10 times / season, I enjoy going all mountain, and always want to try some jumps or pipes but I suck at it and always blame my current board :giggle::giggle::giggle: So I was thinking maybe if I get a different size board, lighter would make things easier for me and more fun.

I was looking into a GNU Pickle Link or a Burton Process Flying V Link but I haven't made my mind up yet.

So any recommendations are welcome, thank you.

Anyone? I need help I went to a different store yesterday and they have a larger selection than the previous one, so owner offered me couple options for my riding style, he showed me a gnu metal guru and a never summer proto HD... I really liked the never summer proto, I also liked the GNU pickle I saw at the other store... any help pls?

out of all the boards you said- the metal guru would be my choice, should be like the banana magic which i liked. Any thing you get should probably be in a 153-155 ish size.

I thought the pickles rode weird due to the asym side cuts, some people like them some don't.

If you ride in icy conditions often then magnetraction is really the way to go IMO, stiff camber boards to well too but still not as good.

If the shops near have rossignol boards; the Templar Magtek would be my suggestion for you.
