Looking for a freeride/freestyle board.
So, after doing some research it seems like board technology has really improved in the last 5 years,(how old my current board is) and it would be beneficial towards my snowboarding to get a new deck for this winter. I ride a 156 Atomic Hatchet, and this has really been the board I've gotten good on. I love this board, but I just never feel comfortable doing park stuff on it, and park is where I want to start excelling since my mountain riding is pretty maxed. I'm 5'7 and 145lbs, and I'm looking for a board that has alott of the new freestyle elements, but is still all mountain ridable since mountain riding is still mostly what I do,(Powder, trees, steeps, natural terrain). I'd like to keep the price tag under $400, but if you guys think a board is worth the money I can spend more. I'll probably be getting this board around Fall, or 2010/2011 season start.
I've been out of the tech loop for so long I'm open to all suggestions. The one board that seems promising from reading these forums and other reviews though is the NeverSummer SL-R. Nice graphics too.
