Default Rossignol? Advice needed

OK,

So I've skateboarded and surfed for a while and I have two trips planned with about four days of mountain, NC and most of it in Colorado. I'm trying to get a board that will last me for a bit and look decent, I like this: Amazon.com: Rossignol District Amptek Snowboard 159: Sports & Outdoors

I don't know their reputation but I want to avoid getting the K-Mart "skateboard" of the snowboard world instead of getting a real snowboard. It makes a difference in skateboarding, the bearings are terrible, not real maple or 7 ply etc etc.

But I don't want to break the bank either and I'm trying to get it by Friday which brings in limitations of money.

I would like to ride terrain when possible and fill the rest with all around mountain time. Will this work out well, good board etc. not missing tons of tech. items from a $50 more board or something?

Hopefully this makes sense, not trying to get something that is the best because it would be wasted since I'm not at such a level, but I want something that isn't going to hinder me either. I've checked for my weight (190lb) and 10.5/11" foot that this is the appropriate size (159). Again will this board make me happy and not let me down?


Thanks in advance!

I haven't met anyone who's had bad things to say about the newer rossi boards.

That board look like it's heavily gear towards the park though, might want to consider something else unless that's your main goal.

Evo.com Rossignol 159 Templar Magtek Snowboard 2013 $163 is cheaper and is better board.

I kinda dig the graphic of the one I mentioned, I do prefer park and would like to ride that type of terrain since it's more like what I normally do and enjoy.

Still thumbs up for it, even if it's not as good? And not as good in what way will I notice/care? Thanks again everyone.
