Reccommend a $500 Freestyle Board

So I need to get a new board now. I sold my never Summer sl-r. I was planning on getting another one. But since I wont be getting one anytime soon, I am open to suggestions. Looking for a freestyle board. 80% mountain and 20% park. I will be putting either Rome targa and K2 formula on this board. $500 bucks is my budget, $550 MAX

thanks in advance

I'm a big fan of Arbor boards. I just bought a NS Heritage, so I don't have the budget for another board anytime soon, but my next board will probably be an Arbor.

For 80% moutain I would go stiffer than an Evo or _____star. Bump up to what you had, and SL, or a Believer or Jibpan for true twins.

For non true twins I'd look at a Turbo Dream, Agent, Quiver Killer, Nitro Team Gullwing, Bataleon Goliath...

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
