Burton Supermodel vs. K2 Turbo Dream

Hi guys I am relatively new to snowboarding I've been a few times but I recently got a season pass and I'm 6'1" 225lbs. Basically I wanted to know what board you guys think would be better for me for all round just freeriding either 163 Supermodel or 164 K2 Turbo Dream.

TurboDream. The Supermodel is characteristically torsionally too stiff in my opinion and honestly a little dead feeling. The TD is a great board and you can choose what bindings you want with it. The Supermodel limits you to EST. The TD also has harshmallow which is awesome stuff. The Supermodel is a tapered diretional board, good for big mountain, not so much for resort. The TD is a setback twin so it is going to do much better for resort riding and will be much more forgiving for you, especially seeing as how it has 3 stage rocker.

You might also want to check the Raygun. Should be a great board and its quite affordable, I'm already betting a best seller.

It's actually the 2010 TD model or 2009 Burton Supermodel and I'm not sure if the TD has harsh-mellow.I was also thinking of getting Burton Cartels with the TD. Would there be any fitting issues?

As long as they aren't EST cartels you'll be fine. As far as I know last years TD does not have Harshmellow. But I would still pick it over the Supermodel. Its just a more versatile ride.

In my opinion go with the Turbo Dream. I have tested it a few years in a row now and I can honestly say it's one of my favorites. It has a super smooth ride that's forgiving and fun. K2's "All Terrain Rocker" is great for all conditions.
