Need some help on board purchase
Started snowboarding last year after skiing for 16 years. Am 28, in good shape, picked it up pretty fast. Absolutely love it, and ready to buy a second board. I have no complaints about my gear as I wouldn't even know what's wrong anyway. I live in Michigan, so its hard packed the majority of the time, please keep this in mind. I know skill > board, so doesn't need to be said.
I'm 5' 10", 160 lbs, boots are 10.5
Currently I have the Nitro Revolt (2007?), its 155 (Is this too short for me?), m11 flow bindings, 32 lashed boots (these are so comfortable lol).
My problem is this. There's like a thousand boards and as much as I troll these forums I haven't a clue. I have 0 interest in the park, I just want to screw around on the hill and want the smoothest ride possible. I don't care what brand, don't care about price, and I don't care about replacing the bindings if I have to. So please, throw me some boards and set ups out there, it would be so appreciated you have no idea. Been going crazy over the past week trying to find something. Furthermore, I don't have any preference in terms of it being a rocker or w/e else is new out there. I've got all my sides down (enough to feel comfortable). I do have ONE requirement though. Durability!
Thanks again for your time. All I ask is you don't just post board names, some description would be great as I want to absorb as much info as I can so on my next purchase after this one I don't have to throw myself here to your mercy! =)
Last but not least folks, I want to order this board by Monday. Whoever convinces me with a solid purchase, and the best price available online, i'll flip you 20$'s through paypal. That's no joke. People pay me for my knowledge, no reason I shouldn't for yours. Details are important to me, so convince me! Thanks again
