asa fellow east coast rider i have to recommend a gnu or lib tech board with MTX. the MTX will help you a lot with ice and hard pack.

If you want a list of good boards I could fill who knows how many lines giving suggestions, its just too broad of a question. Give us some specifics. What terrain do you ride most? park, all mountain, freeriding? Do you have a price limit? Do you ride switch at all? Hit rails and/or jumps? More info would be nice. And btw, if you want an mtx board get a rossignol, better build quality than lib tech.

I have been shredding the east coast slopes for 15 years and for the past 3 years I have been riding a Hiedenfunker. Not that there is anything wrong with a lib tech board, they are also great. But for a smaller rider like you the Hiedenfunker handles much easier because of the ultimate durability. Shred factor on a 1-10 I'd give it a high 8!

I pretty much ride all mountain... maybe a few jumps here and there. Nothing big. i like just riding around without doing anything crazy yet. maybe in the future start getting into rails and big jumps but right now just riding all mountian.

Since you pretty much just mountain ride and only hit a few jumps i would def. recommend the heavier more sturdy BigFoot by Hiedenfunker. It is perfect for riding and it has a nice smooth feel to it. If then you want to step it up i would go to the Hiedenfunker's ShredHead, which is lighter and better for rippin jumps and getting gnarly airtime. When you hit the pipe with a ShredHead it shows the rest of the riders that you mean business.
