Default My 1st Post

Going out to Colorado the past couple years has made me realize I should, and need, to buy my own board.... I am looking to buy a snowboard. This is rediculous. Im looking at a ballpark of $200-$300. Im not nessisarily looking for a name brand board, just something that can help elevate my potential skills. Ya feel! Maybe a name brand is what I need...

I want to start air tricks. 180's... maybe 360's... grabs... Maybe some rails and boxes, but not a priority. But for the most part, I just want to cruise the mountain and hit some jumps.

Would rocker be the best? camber? Hard, soft, in the middle?

My top board Im taking into consideration is the Burton Hero, not the super hero.

Ohh... and I think buttering is really cool and would like a board that could hold up to it...

Mid flex 5-7 all mountain freestyle board.

Directional twin if you don't ride a lot of switch
Twin if you ride a lot of switch

Hybrid profile, rocker is more of a catch free beginner profile.
Camber rocker camber or rocker camber rocker will be more aggressive and powerful

Sintered base

Find a board with those features and it should fit just right with your style of riding.
