Looking for new set-up recommendations
Hey all! I'm about ready to upgrade my current set-up and am looking for advice. I'm 6'0, 215lbs, size 11 boot. I'm an intermediate rider and stick to the groomed runs, no park. Rarely, do we get powder that I can take advantage of. I board almost exclusively at resorts in the midwest. For the most part, I board along side my 6 year old son who is an advancing skiier, so I like the idea of the Flow bindings. A couple times of year I get out with all adults and am able to board a little faster runs. I'm looking for a set up that will allow me to grow into as my son becomes more advanced and rides well on the hard packed groomed runs.

Thanks for any suggestions!

what is your price range for just the board?

I'd like to stay under $400.

Get a board in the 162-165cm range, that will fit your weight and keep you from needing a wide board.

Generally, the more camber a board has the better it does on hard pack.

Boarts I suggest- Salomon Time Machine, Rome Reverb Camber, Burton Process Camber, Flow Drifter.
