After 10 years I need a new board
Hello all of you.
I am from France and I have been riding for 15 years, unfortunately not on a regular basis, probably 10 days a year on average. I just registered on here to get some advice.
My present board is a Forum Peter Line 2001 159 Wide with 2006 P1 carbon and 32 lashed boots (I broke my original binding set Ride preston LX in 2006).
I like to ride everywhere, especially powder, hit jumps in the park and going mach 10 on the slopes, just rails I am not that into.
I am 6.1 feet (1m87) for 170lb and wear a size 12.
My board is getting tired and splitting in two halves... Even though I love it I think it's time to change. I have been looking around for this year's boards just to get inspired for next season. I would like to get a longer board than the 159 but not too long.
Here are the 2 choices sticking out to me:
Burton T6 164W (i found a 2008 version for 300$ sounds like a deal?)
lib tech Trice 161.5 and i'll have to wait until next year for that.
Feel free to tell me what your think. I don't have an infinite budget but I can pay 5 or 600 for a new board if that's worth it for the next 10 years...
Thanks to all.
