Default What can I expect?

I have been snowboarding for about 5 years now and I live in Texas. So I have made about 10 snowboard trips with three days each. Doing the math I have about 30 days of snowboarding under me. There is no run on the mountain that I am afraid of doing, though I prefer to stay away from moguls. The last two trips I have ventured over to the park and have been trying my hand there. Ok so my question is this... I have been riding a Burton floater (I think a 2002) and am making the upgrade to a Burton custom 09 and was wondering what immediate difference I will see not only in the park, but also on the mountain? I have never rode any other board except for a rental my first time in 2004.

First you'll notice that it is WAY more easier to catch an edge when starting with a brand new board. Assuming from the name i'm guessing that 'Floater' is a cruiseboard with a tapered shape and directional core. So you'll also have to get used to the twin-directional shape that the custom has. It will take a couple of hours/days before you get to know it, and then you'll love it
Enjoy the new board feel!

Edit: Welcome to the forum!
