can't decide on type of snowboard to get
I'm 5'11 - 180. I've been snowboarding for many years and am able to ride any trail on the mountain. I really love to cruise down the mountain. I currently have a salomon forecast 159 from 2003 - it is a stiffer freeride board and carves really nicely. This season I'm thinking about upgrading my board but I really have no idea what to get. I'd really like to pick up a board thats shorter - probably 156, and lighter, a bit more flexable. I'd like to be able to hit jumps better, but I still want to be able to jet down the mountain like i'm used to. So I won't be at the park all the time, but will attempt to hit some jumps, 360's, and all that (no rails for me). Also I'm on the east coast if that makes a difference.
so key things i'm looking for is lightweight - i dont know if I need it to be more flexible - any thoughts? I'd still like to be able to carve and cruise the mountain at high speeds (north east coast mountains btw)
I've been looking at the burton custom, or custom x. Any other suggestions? I'm open to any brand I really just want a sick board.
