New board for next year?
Hey, I just started boarding this year actually, and I love it, much more then skiing. I finally can link my turns pretty solid, and working on a few grinds, not much yet, but anyhow I bought a Burton Bullet, last years model because it was cheap and all that, not knowing what to really get. I researched a litle more over the period of time since i actually started, and am wondering what board i should get for next year, i dont mind my Bullet, but i would like a little looser of a board. Mine is pretty darn stiff, and i'm not sure on any good ones to get. Also, bindings, i have some burtons, but they are kind of falling apart, i dont know why. any help would be awesome!

capita sierrascope is on sale again for $300. get it now. best board for the buck by a mile.

Is the board too long for you? Burton lists the flex rating for the Bullet as a 2, so if you want something softer there aren't many options. Unless of course the board is just way too long, but then it'll probably be harder to compare stiffness with other boards of shorter length.

oh, i did look that up and notice that. it just seems so stiff compared to my friends. he has a burton clash. its 5cm shorter, but i dont know how much of a difference that makes. also im about 6 2' and mine is a 160. do they bend a little more over time?
