New season, New board
sup guys. I'm looking at getting a new board before season starts and I need a little input. I'm 6'3", about 165lb, size 12 but i packed out some 0809 jermey jones 10.5's with out too much trouble (burton boots are legendary for packing out). I've had 40+ day seasons the last couple years and i look to ride way more this year. I would say I'm an intermediate to advanced freestyle rider, blacks are not an issue. I spend a lot of time on the rails and boxes in the park but like jibbing/playing on the slopes. I'm moving back to Summit County Colorado when summer is done and riding Keystone and Breckenridge mostly. Last season I rode a 0708 155 burton X8 with cartels and hated how noodle it was, way way too soft for my taste and just a tad too short. I found a sponsored rider selling a used 0809 Ride DH 157 so i snagged it cheap, threw on some new Ride beta's and never looked back. Great board, great bindings. I really want to push it this year and i need a board that is going to help me do that. Right now I'm looking at the DH2 DFC and the Society, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm interested in trying a Forum board, but I know Ride is a solid company so i figure why mess with what works? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Dudes.
