Default Another what board for me thread =)

Hey everyone, Im looking to buy another board this year for mostly free riding and maybe a trip to the park here and there. I live on the East coast and would like a board that is soft but not too soft where I'll have no response or won't be able to enjoy most the mountain. I was looking at the K2 WWW at a local shop the other day but it looks like it would be more of a jib board and that is probably no what Im looking for. I did love the flex it had though haha. I wear a size 10 boot, 5'8", and 160 lbs. I also looked online at the GNU CHB as well as the Forum Youngblood in the 156cm range. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Don't get the WWW if you want to freeride. The GNU CHB or Atomic Hatchet would be a better choice. Take a look at Capita decks as well.

Rome makes a good assortment of boards as well. The Agent is a good board for what it sounds like you want to do. How many years have you been riding and where on the east coast are you riding?

Ive been riding since 2000, took a break for a couple years and started going a lot more last season. I ride the mountains in Maine for the most part and don't usually go anywhere else. I'm trying to keep a budget of around 300-400 tops, so the Agent might be out of my price range unless I look for an older model.

The Rome Solution might be a good option for you then...

I agree the solution is a good choice of board, but Crail isn't that bad of an option either. It's lower on the money side and it should be a fun board to ride and will help you to progress. I'm always gunna say get a Rome cause it's my choice brand but there are other good companies out there. Atomic, Academy, Stepchild, Neversummer, you knwo the list is endless.

I saw the Crail at a local shop as well and it didnt seem that bad of a board at all. I might have to go recheck that bad Larry out and see if I like it.

Other than Rome, what other choices would be good? Thanks

Yeah, I actually have a Rome Crail 156 and (although I haven't ridden it yet) it seems like a damn fine stick for $200.

I think the GNU CHB would be a good choice if you don't go for the Rome's...
