Arbor Draft for All Mountain Use and other opinions
New snowboarder here who has been on the slopes about 6 times this year. So now I'm looking to buy my own board instead of continuously renting. I'm 5'7", 120lbs.
I'm interested in riding mostly groomed slopes for now, but possibly doing some park stuff in the future when I get better. I'm also going to be doing most of my riding on the east coast in Maryland and PA with a trip or so to Vermont every year.
Anyways, most boards that fit my size, 146-149, appear to be for freestyle use. I've looked closely at the Arbor Draft and was wondering the opinions of this board for using on groomed terrain and possibly icy eastern conditions.
Also, I've looked at the following boards as possibilities as well: Capita Sierrascope (too large?),Ride Antic, Neversummer Circuit-R, Arbor Element(again too large?), Rome Crail, Ride Control, Rome Anthem, Rome Agent.
So, does anyone have advice for a beginner rider looking to do mostly all-mountain with possibly some park in the future?
