What snowboard should i buy for 2010???

Hey, my first snowboard was a burton twin, 154, 06/07. Great board, but im ready to step it up.

What im looking for is a board with plenty of flex, but tough enough to take any hill top to bottom. Ive been learning a lot about board techs, and i would like something along the lines of a reverse camber.

I like the Capita Stairmaster, Capita Horrorscope FK, K2 WWW, Libtech, and GNU snowboards, I live in the ice coast (east coast), maybe another thing to keep in mind.

Im 5'8, about 170 pounds, i dunno if that helps.

Anyways, thanks in advance, I hope this helps me on my mission for a new snowboard, and helps everyone else get alittle excited for the upcoming season,

peace!

i would recomend the rome artifact 1985. it has a reversed camber and is really sick. it comes in alot of dirrerent sizes, but for your hight and weight i would reccomend something in the low 150's. a smaller board is alot easier to use if your are going to be riding alot of park
hope that helps

Ditto on this. Or possibly a SL-R.

You really need to decide what riding style you prefer since you dont really say. No flexy board is going to get you down the mountain as comfortably or at the same speed as a stiffer board, its about finding the right balance for what you want to do.
