hey so i think i have outgrown my crail. i really dont want to get a new board, but the camber is waaay too flexy for my taste. the board barely floats on pow because of my weight. i was thinking about getting a new board, for somewhere around $300 for now. if i can get another $200, i will probably get a legacy-r.
the biggest problem with my current board is that i have A LOT of overhang. like an inch. it seriously pisses me off and my binding strap is all worn out from that after five times.
i'm 5' 7", 170 lbs, have huge feet, and my riding style is freestyle (i also bought this board back when i was only doing freeride). i was also thinking about some new bindings, probably rome targas or union forces. i would like a slightly longer board (possibly 158?) because by the winter i expect to be about six feet tall.
i am willing to wait until the next model year comes around, too.
i would like the board to be:
-be able to accommodate my size 12 boots with little or no overhang
-be true twin
-be good all around the mountain: a park board might be better since i am in the northeast and the ice sucks shit. i think this is a stupid question, but are there any park boards that are good in pow, too? maybe if i size up will that help?
-be a good value
thanks for your help and i plan on adding to this list as i go. -josh
