Some help with picking a board
hi, im new to the forum but have read a good number of posts to see how helpful you guys can be so i just wanted some advice
I'm 5'9, 150 lbs, and have at least 5 years of riding experience (can't exactly remember when i started)
currently looking to invest in a new snowboard since i've been banging around my beginner one for some time now.
looking to start going to the park and starting some freestyle but will probably mostly be freeriding cuz that's what my friends mainly do.
The selection of available snowboards nowadays is just so huge i don't even know where to start looking.
Any suggestions to some good all mountain boards priced at $400 - $500?
p.s. will a freestyle board that is toward teh softer end be very terrible for going down like black diamond slopes?
thanks in advance!
