Board advice
 
What's up guys... I've been looking into some new boards and was wondering if anyone has some suggestions. I was going to possibly get the skate banana (yes, probably overrated) or the arbor westmark however i heard that their durability isn't too great.
I'm about 5'9, 150lbs and a size 10 boot
Oh and I'll be riding mainly groomers, and ice... I'm in NY. Unfortunately i dont ride powder because my family isnt into skiing or snowboarding:icon_scratch, so we never go anywhere special. I'll also be doing park maybe like 30% park 70% other stuff. And I'm an intermediate rider, can ride blacks and all (i know I'm cool) but I'm not a speed Demon

Anyways thanks everyone!
Hope this is the right thread, I'm new at this��

On this site there are a few lib die hards that will recommend the SB however most of the guys that test boards will tell you to get on the westmark. I have the blacklist which is the wider version of that board and it is a really good do it all deck.

So is there any other boards like the westmark? Or should I just go with that.
I wanna demo some boards but that won't be until next year. And I'm not familiar with the whole demo process.

while the edge tech for either board should make the edge hold adequate, I'd consider camrock boards for strictly east coast riding as well.

Other boards like the westmark: I'd like to try the marhar throwback or the MIP or Hooligan from smokin. All of which have mellow versions of magnetraction and Rocker - flat - Rocker profiles which might be a little more stable on ice. That said, I'm surprised by how stable arbor rocker boards are.

Anything with magnatraction or vario grip will do the trick on the ice coast.
I ride mainly in NY as well and I personally like CRC boards.
