Default Need help getting a All mountain/freestyle board

Hi all,

I am 5'7" and wear a shoe size of 8.5, I am 158lbs. I am looking for an all mountain/freestyle board and need help.

I was looking at the never summers but the 09 sl-r I cannot find it and the new 2010 sl-r looks like its mostly for freestyle. I would rather have all mountain.

I was thinking about going with a board size of 152/155 is that a good size for me?


What I would mostly be riding is not too much pow, jumps a little park riding etc.

Also, what binding would be good with what board (if you suggest a board for me please suggest a pair of bindings as well).

Thanks.

What size board should I get and what bindings would be good for the 2010 sl-r? Given my height and weight plus shoe size. Thanks.

This is an all mountain board correct? Fly down as well as hit the park once in a while?

you are way too caught up in categories. there is not much difference between the definitions of all mountain and freestyle or whatever and every less difference in the boards. the boards don't know where you are using them and its not like they are going to shock you if you take a "park board" out of the park.

Ok well. I really like to mess around on the mountain. I like to ride everywhere. I would like a board thats pretty flexible but also all around board. I am new to buying a snowboard. I have an old board which I dont like and would want to purchase something else. I dont care if its an 2009 model. I would just like some advice as to which boards you guys would recommend. I just want some input and help not to be bashed. Everyone posts "Help buying a board" and they actually get some advice and help. Thats all I am looking for is to get some suggestions of what boards are good for all mountain freestyle with some good bindings. Is that too much to ask for? Geesh.

Winner winner, chicken dinner! The SL-R is stiffer and more damping then the Evo-R.
