Having trouble with finding the right board
 
Hi guys,

I have been to several test centers and so far the boards that I like the most but not being fully amazed are:

1st: K2 WWW
2nd: Salomon Assassin

Nevertheless I would like to know what is your experience with the following boards:

- Burton Super Hero 2014
- GNU Carbon credit 2014
- Lib Tech Skate Banana 2014

My Riding style is: Freestyle: mostly butters, jibbing some boxes at the snowpark and the some mid pops.

For me it is very important that the board it is quite flexible to properly butter it and to turn sharply with good grip.

Let me know your thoughts, in addition Ive got a pair of K2 Maysis boot 44.5 / 10.5 ... shall I go for Wide? I rather not...

Thanks in advance

no need to go wide. id recommend k2 www, or salomon assassin based on the fact you've ridden them and like them and that is the most important factor. the others are really just suggestions based some one else's opinion, or sales promos

Thanks.... indeed good conclusion but they were not a wow factor. I am keen to know the experience on the listed boards since they seem more technical and higher rating boards

Anoy other suggestions are more than welcome...thanks again

first not wide...second you want a board that WILL UP your skills, i.e., challenge you to progress....have no idea what that might be...not a fs'er

The salomon Villain seems more up your alley than the assassin. Good pop. holds an edge nicely even in hard snow. i have been learning how to butter and spin on it, i was riding a much stiffer boards. I haven't really been riding my other boards this season it is so much fun.

I have ridden an older skate banana and it definitely had less pop but still held an edge well. You had to load the tips more to get it to pop. They they were similar in flex, the banana being slightly stiffer i think. It had better float in pow.
