whats a good tree board?

so i have a park board and lately the people I ride with are all about ducking the rope and hitting up the trees all day. What would be a good ideal board for tree riding?
i wear a size 12

never summer premier f1-r and size it down a bit. the rc is super maneuverable and provides plenty of float in the pow. i'm about 175 lbs. and ride the 159. it handles the trees just fine (much better than my old traditional camber 159) any smaller and i think it would lose some float.

Capita Black Death will fill all of your needs outside of the park.

I ride a Horrorscope and a Black Death and all my areas are covered.

Whatever board you're riding.

i'm assuming trees means powder as well. most don't pop into the trees with thin cover and hard pack...unless you're me and dying for some tree runs on the east coast.

I think you guys are taking him to seriously when he says "tree" board... I think he's talking about a board to hit non park stuff with a focus on the trees. Aka a freestyle board or something like that.

My malolo is godly in the trees when the snow is good. I just spent the last 2 weeks shredding japan powder between the trees in hakuba, niseko and rusutsu.

It's a bit of a boat on hard pack tho. If you are riding in the trees in search for powder then you'll want a different board if the conditions aren't as favourable.

Any all mountain board would be fine. But get a powder board if that's the reason you're going into the trees. They turn into tree slaying ninja assassins once the snow starts getting deeper.

This.

If you are getting a pow specific board make sure it's tapered. I have a Forum Roost and love it. It shreds the steep & deep.
