Default Time for a new Board

Wadup everyone. Sorry if theres too many of these threads but i dont wanna walk into a store with a limited selection and be forced to pick one of those boards!
So my situation, ive been riding this Santa Cruz Snowboards 2009 The Ak 159
My brother recently pushed me into starting some park and I hella dig it, but i also love me some fresh Pow and back country snowboarding. So im pretty much looking for an all around board, I wouldnt mind a more park oriented board that can handle some deep powder. I would sesarch the internet and look around and such but theres just so much out now that its too much to handle. Thanks for all the replies
Summary:
175 lbs
6 feet tall
16 years old
Size 13 Foot
Burton Cartel Bindings
Park/freestyle/back country snowboarding

BLOG / NEWS | BATALEON SNOWBOARDS | Triple Base Tech, the best thing to happen to snowboards since edges.

I would check into either the Omni or Goliath

The Goliath has a wide board available and with your large feet, that may be your only choice.

The Never Summer "Revolver" might suite you as well.

My opinion on Lib Tech....

Nice boards, but it seems like everybody is riding one.... I personally don't like having the same shit that everyone else does.

I see a ton of Never Summer boards in Summit County, but they're made in Denver, so....

Have yet to see a Bataleon on the hill

You do see a lot of Never Stuff in CO but it's for a good reason. The boards are tough as nails! If something was to happen and it had to go in for warranty they are local so that adds to it as well. 10 years ago all my friends were NS nuthuggers but I rode my Forum at the time. After I first rode a NS shortly after that I knew it was a good board.

Milo...I might have to take u up on the Funk Kink ride... I just don't have anything for you. Maybe on a demo day etc...

I'm down to strap into a NS

The Fun-Kink hasn't seen any white stuff yet so it may be a second on that one. I am talking with the Bataleon people to try and get a demo day set up also

if youre going to be getting into park, get a skate banana
hands down, its the best board ive ever ridden and i will never ride anything other than lib tech as long as i board
the board has killer flex,an insane rocker and its really forgiving

If your buying a Skate banana also buy a bicycle chain/lock and lock it anytime you walk away...i saw like 3 kids(15-18) over the last season get their skate banana's stolen..and those were just days i was there...they stick out like a sore thumb on a rack, a lot of thefts are on those boards because people know they can resell them for 350-400 bucks in a matter of days.

this is so true, especially since i just bought new bindings which make it stick out even more.
i used to have a tech nine and would leave that thing out wherever, but ever since i got my banana i make sure my board is either under my feet or under my arm. but i think its the same with any higher end board, you just cant trust people these days
