At first apologies that I am not so familiar with snowboarding terms. I am middle age guy who has now snowboarding 4-5 years (two last years can be called snowboarding, previous ones just learning).
I have had all the time same board, about 5 years old Firefly board with flat profile. Now I am looking new board to replace that but I have no ideas which board would be most suitable for me.
My usage would be:
- mainly normal skiing on groomers (i think this means piste
+ some small tricks (small jumping etc) there at the edges of the piste
- some skiing off-piste /powder
- most probably I will stay out of the parks/pipes, so not going to make any hard tricks or jumps
I would like to have kind of combination of board with good responsivity for turns but also beeing forgiving (somehow i think that chamber is not forgiving enough even not have had such board) for small tricking. So would some kind of hybrid (flying v etc) would be best for me? Any brand /model proposals?
