Looking for my first all mountain board- suggestions?

Hi all,
I'm looking for my first all mountain board, I don't have a set budget, but will look at higher mid range price bracket.
Looking for a true twin board, as I want to learn ride switch as well.
I'm 83kg (and often wear a small rucksack), 177cm height, size 9uk boots.
I'm hoping to demo some boards in Chamonix next week and looking for recommendations?
First board I'm going to try is a Jones Mountain Twin.
Any suggestions?

Burton Custom, Salomon Villain, Yes Greats, Jones Aviator, NS Funslinger, Salomon Mans Board, Salomon Assassin, Burton Name Dropper, Capita DOA, Capita Outsiders, Capita NAS, Burton Antler, Slash ATV, Rome Mod, APO Sage.

Literally that is all you should consider. Every single one of those listed above are tremendously versatile and sturdy all mountain but freestyle focused boards.

Solid list above. To it I'd add K2 Happy Hour, Salomon Assassin, Never Summer Proto, Lib tech TRS or T.rice, GNU Riders choice, Rossignol Angus or One, Ride Machete GT.

As you can tell there's no shortage of options. What's your riding style, and what have you ridden before? Slightly freestyle focused, or more charging around the whole mountain?

When it comes to boards, perhaps the best thing you can do when requesting input from the members is to inform us of what profile you like to ride.

Full Camber, Full rocker, RCR, CRC, etc.

That will allow us to more quickly narrow down suggestions based on your preferred profile. You will otherwise be overwhelmed with suggestions as you can see from above.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
