I need a new board... HELP!!
 
Hey everyone! I'm in need of a new board!

I currently own a "Libtech Scotty Whitlake model" from about 5 or 6 year back (WAY back... before they had Magnetraction!) and I believe I'm in need of a new board... and bindings! (the bindings I have are complete trash. Some Technine free bindings).

Anyway, I can be described as a mountain rider. I always hit the mountains near Banff and Jasper (Rocky mountains in Canada). I love to hit powder and I love to hit jumps (not full on jumps in the terrain park, but like jumps on the side of the pathways and such. Just to do like 180's off of them and little things like that). What would be a good board/binding combo for me? I was recommended at the local board shop to get a "Rocker/Flying V combination" of a board. I love Libtech, but have heard AMAZING things about Burton.

I was checking out the Burton Custom (the new ones with the chick in a swimming suit on it) with the Malavita's. Also, I saw the "Easy livin" Board and the Libtech TRS! There was one more I was fond of, but I can't remember what it was called... I remember they were all like different 'one' colors depending on the size. I remember a bright orange one and a bright blue one i think... Might have been Rome...?

Any other suggestions?

#1 that's just fucking awesome.

#2 lots of info including all your answers are a small click away, read this section of the forums, lots of in-depth discussion and reviews on all sorts of "mountain" snowboards. I love my Malavitas and NS Proto, but there are other decks and bindings that would suit me nicely as well, these ones are gonna break soon.

OH! And I should add, my board now is CAMBER and not very flexy at all.
