Tell me what to buy?
 
No, seriously. I don't know what's the happs in the snowboard world anymore. What I'm looking for in a board is symmetrical, twin stance or whatever it's called. I'm about 130lb's, size 6.5 US boot, I would say aggressive in freeriding, don't do tree's, try to stay out of the park and will be trying to split my time 50/50 between the city and mountains. I'm currently on a very, very dead 2010 Never Summer Infinity 151, and would prefer a style of board like that.

You sure you don't want to go to a more directional board as that's what you're making it sound like what you want.

Yeah, I'm still spending a good chunk of my time teaching, and I really hate riding switch on a directional board. On that note though, I am willing to toy around with a small amount of set back, but would still prefer a twin shape.

You probably want a more directional twin than anything.

You could do the K2 Wow Pow or Spotlight, Rome LoFi, Rome Gold, Nitro will have a few options, if you want a hybrid camber profile that's stiffer and more in tune to what you ahve with the NS check out the Thrive Prestige.

No I'm just a guy that knows way too much about snowboards.

Back from the dead! So I had the chance to go do a bit of shopping in real life yesterday, and have my eyes on a few new boards. The top two prospects are the Salomon Wonder and K2 WowPow. Thoughts on the Salomon?

Bamfboardman 10-26-2014 04:37 PM

A Salomon Gypsy should also be on your list.

idk perhaps a gnu Lady's Choice would fill the requirements.
