Thanks for the responses guys. To answer some of the questions, I won't be doing much park, will dabble a bit, but me and my buddies will be more on the mountain and also off-piste making jumps and kickers. I won't be doing a great deal of tricks, more just riding the mountain this season to pick it up better and it all depends how fast I progress. I should of gave more info.
The board is fairly cheap here. Selections of boards out in NZ isn't great, not much access online, more in the shops so stock isn't the best.
To sum it up I just want to ride all about the mountain, with fast runs, big drops, and going off-piste building our own jumps/kickers, with a bit of park now and then when we want.
