I am new to snowboarding and want to pick up a board. I have been doing some research and have picked out a few boards which are within my price range. I am 5' 9" 190 so I am also not positive what size. But I am stuck between the Rossignol Retox 2010, Salomon Official 2010, or a Salomon Riot 2010. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
ok well i will have size like 9.5 boots so i dont think I need a wide. And idk what kind of riding I will be doing. I guess just some of everything. And I am not looking for a low quality board I want a nice board that I can progress on and have fun. I am a pretty good wake boarder so I am hoping I can pick up on snowboards also.
Capita has a few boards in your price range both boards SurbanBlend recomended are under $350. As this sounds like your first board you can look around at last years models and find a decent board within your price range. Really just have to look around a bit but still some good boards in stock here and their.
Just a few brands to look into for your price range:
Might even be able to find last years Never Summer Circuit for around your price range also.
wow! I really appreciate all the help. I am looking into the boards recommended. I see Milo that you are not a fan of the lib tech TRS TRS: Total Ripper Series Lib Tech Snowboards
that one. I see that a lot of people really like them and give good reviews. Any likes or dislikes that anyone knows about?
ok I really like the hatchet and think it fits well for me but I really hate the skull n grim reaper death dude on it. The only downfall and is kinda a big one.
Right now its between the hatchet, salomon riot, never summer circuit-r, capita stairmaster, nitro volume, and nitro fox team one off. any ideas?
