New Burton board, Which one should i choose?

I am looking for a light and all-round board which can take me primarily in parks and slopes but also able to take me for a little ride in the powder. It need to have good flex and be able to take me jibbing and doing ground tricks all over the area.

These are the ones they have in stock in my size.
Dominator
Flying ICS
Easy Livin

Need recommendations please, thanks

should have looked into something with reverse camber and nt exclusively burton. neversummer evo-r, lib tech skate banana, or gnu pakr pickle would have been perfect for what your looking for.

Yeah, i know but a store here in norway got 50% on all burton products, so my only option without emtying my bank account completely was ordering a burton-board and bindings.

Have looked at the skate banana board but if i should ordered it in norway, i would have cost me about 50% more than the burton board. The only other option would be eBay.

hehe yes, and since things are "a little bit" more expensive than in the states, i went for the dominator/dominant board.

I payed 422 Dollars for the board and 219 dollars for the Burton Exile EST bindings and that was with 50% discount.

Sucks living in Europe though Germany isnt quite as bad....thats the reason I am going to Florida over the weekend - to pick up my snowboarding gear, haha.

I got a Custom V Rocker + Cartel EST for 430 Dollars (plus tons and tons of other stuff). I am so excited. Have fun with your board!!

Still sounds like you made a very good deal.

Correct, it sucks living in europe, and when we finally got a huge slopestyle park here in Norway, they decided to rip it down just four days after the "The Artic Challenge". Damn!

Haha I just find it really funny that you'd be going to Florida to pick up snowboarding equipment.
