Q on what board K2 Turbo Dream or Libtech TRS
I am going into my third year boarding. Next time I board, I will be 50. I am 175 - 180 and 5'10" . I will never be in the park, and just like to enjoy the mountain. I am frequently going to Blue Mountain, Camel Back and all over Vermont. I am thinking that I do most of my boarding in severe cold. I have been getting out 15+ days per season, and hope I can increase that.
I have looked and have found to boards from last season. One board is a 156 K2 Turbo Dream, the other is a 159 Libtech TRS. I am not concerned with the cost difference. I think both boards are 40% off of list.
I am not too aggressive on the mountain, yet welcome if equipment can help me on the ice and various North East conditions. Yet, if opportunity arises, would love to go out west. I want a board I can grow into. I am currently using a K2 Dart 150, which I basically got for free. I have K2 Cinch CTX bindings and Burton Ruler boots.
I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation. Is there one I should take over another. The 156 goes right below my chin. Yet, the next K2 TurboDream is not available and would be 159. So I guess I am asking also if I should choose the 159 LibTech or the 156 K2.
Thanks for any responses.
