Default ride vs lib-tech

Hi there I just wanted to get some opinions on these two brands.

I am looking at getting a new board I think im now an intermediate rider stating to do trick and land some of them. I have a ride Fleetwood and that is what I learned on. These are the boards I was looking at I donít mind spending the extra money, but only if it is really worth it.

Ride: society around $630
Machete (is it worth spending the extra$100 to get the society) around $500

Lib-tech: t.rice c2 around $650
Skunk ape around $670
Dark around $799

I am 163lbs and wear a size 11 boot.
I was looking at getting the 157, 158

All your opinion will be appreciated.

You are paying too much for those boards. Here's our Lib Techs. The Trice C2 is over $100 cheaper than wherever you're getting those prices from.
Lib Tech Snowboards

GNU Stuff
GNU Snowboards

Ride Stuff (We sold out on Machete's)
Ride Snowboards

I like the Concept TMS and UL out of those Rides.

Definitely get that dark series. I have one and still love it after 4 seasons. The technology on that thing is insane. It would also be a good choice because of your foot size, your teetering on having to get a wide board and with the risers on the dark it will help that much more for heel and toe drag. It has the best pop I have ever experienced, and just rides so predictably and smooth, definetly the best all mountain board. I just cant say enough good stuff about that board.

@ those saying those prices are too expensive, those are Canadian prices. Maybe you can order them online for cheaper but that's the going rate for picking one up in a shop.

I see. It will definitely be cheaper at the shop in that case. International shipping is never fun. Unless you have a friend in the States
