newby question about new board technology
Okay, I have an ~8-year-old Arbor board - high end when I bought it. I've been wondering if board technology has come along as much as ski technology, and if I'd gain anything buying a new board.
I'm 51 and board intermediate level (yeah I know 8-years is a long time to remain intermediate -- I don't get out much). I don't go fast and I stay out of the park. If a new board would help with tight turns, to help me deal with bumps and trees, that would be great thing.
Stay with the old Arbor? Buy a new board? Get out in the snow, develop skills, and worry about the board later? Recommendations?
