2 boards or a compromise?
hey. im a 19 year old snowboarder from australia and am coming over to colorado in january to board for 6 weeks and need some advice on board selection. im 5 ft 6" tall and weigh 143 pounds. over here i am a bit of a park rat but that is mainly because we dont have much good snow to ride. my main question is if im going to want to ride a fare bit of park over there but still be able to go out and enjoy powder days can i get away with 1 board? i am really keen on getting a reverse camber board as ive stood on a couple over here and really like how fun they feel however am a little concerned on how it will hold up off kickers as i enjoy riding alot of rails aswell as jumps.
i have been thinking of getting a never summer evo r maybe a 151 as everyone raves about this board on this site and from what i hear it should handle kickers alright.
however im worried that it will really hold me back on powder days and i wont be able to make the most of it. so then i have looked at the slr but then i have thought that it might really hold back on my progression in the park. now im considering buying 2 boards, a park board and a powder board but im not sure if its worth spending all that cash. so i suppose my final question is how much will i be held back in the pow in buying a park board or how much will i be held back in the park if i bought a more all-round board.
thanks alot and any feedback, hints, criticism is welcome.
