new ride for 2011 season
Looking at upgrading this season to a higher quality ride. I currently am a beginner/intermediate rider looking to upgrade my Burton Deuce 162W to a mid range (~$500) board. I ride probably 60/40 mountain/park, and am looking for something with more flex than my burton while still being able to take a thrashing. I was really interested in the Chilly dog but due to needing a wide I am now VERY interested in the parkstar/fastplant. Leaning more toward the fastplant, especially with the 5 year warranty. Are there any other models in that price/quality range that I should look into? (Remember I do ride a wide)
I appreciate any advice or thoughts.
Edit: Also my buddy recommended looking into the slayblade, maybe if someone could provide some comparison on that as well. Sorry for such a complex request.
