what kind of snowboard should I buy?

I've been riding a Burton charger for 3 years now ant it's getting a bit old for me. I'm looking to get a new 2014 board but I'm not exactly sure what kind yet. I'm 5'11, 145lbs and a size 10 boot with ride contraband bindings and ride encore boots. I've been looking at a Burton custom x and a libtech ass pickle. I ride all mountain and I want a board I can use for everything. Hopefully with decent flex so I can butter and play around but also have good performance. I don't have a price limit so if anyone could recommend some boards that'd be great! Thanks

first off, if you want a decent flex the custom x is not what you want, more like the custom flying v, much better all around board.

Other than the Custom Flying v, i would look at a K2 happy hour. salomon time machine or assassin, flow era, Ride machete, arbor coda, never summer proto, lib tech trs HP.

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

Go with the ICS

I road an older Salomon Sanchez 152 with Salmon Classic bindings all last year and this year bought a Burton Nug 142 with Custom EST bindings and let me tell you there is a WORLD of difference. I will never go back to 4x4 or diamond bolt pattern bindings again. EST's basically remove the dead spot in the flex so it makes it super easy to butter. I will also love V-rocker boards. The Nug is kind of a personal preference. You can find a better all mountain board, but I like to do mainly park and jib stuff, so the smaller and lighter I can get it the better. So my recommendation is anything ICS Channel and EST bindings.
