Default Looking for board recomendations

I am looking for a new board.
I am 6' 270bs (working on losing weight) size 11 shoe, free rider, ride regular, been riding the same Nitro 172 for years and need a new board and bindings. I live in N.Idaho and will be riding on groomers mostly (turned 40 and not looking at the trees anymore). I don't buy a board every year so want a quality product that will last for at least 5 years. Don't mind spending money for the good stuff but wont turn down a good deal either. Any ideas?

Look into the Never Summer and Bataleon lines.

The Never Summer will likely suit you best considering you want something that will last forever..... Doesn't get much better with longevity then NS

I live in Sandpoint. Never heard of Never Summer they are good long lasting boards? What about bindings? My friend loves Flows and I used them on one of his boards and they seemed good. what do you guys think?

Everything I've heard about flows is that you should only use the high end bindings. I don't think you'll find many people that will tell you neversummers are a bad choice, they're a pretty well known brand for quality.

You gonna be riding schweitzer this season I assume?

Post falls, so like an hour and 15mins from schweitzer which is where I'll probably be riding almost exclusively this season. I'm almost certain no shops sell neversummer in this area, atleast not the ones I've been to.

Well all I can go off of is what I've read and word of mouth since I haven't had a chance to ride them yet but I've heard the Premier and Titan are nice Freeride setups, maybe even the SL-R. Hopefully burtonavenger will see this thread and comment cause he knows those boards really well.

I'll have to checkout deathbox though, although their website is down so I suppose finding them will be interesting.

Yeah they are a funky small place, been by there twice and both times they were closed. Called them this summer about a wake board for a buddy who was in town and it just went to voice mail and they didn't call back. Guess they don't want to sell me a $500 board. I am reading about the Titan and it seems the a good board.
