New board - need opinions!
Hey guys, I've narrowed my search down to 4 boards and I need some opinions. I ride all mountain, but I'd love to get into small jumps and maybe some park. I've been looking to upgrade my gear, and I just want something that would fit me well, help me progress, and last for a few years. Here goes.
2010 Ride DH2 156W - I have size 11 boots so I figured the waist width should be just about right, but I might be close to the top of the weight scale. Also, good price on it.
2010/2011 GNU Carbon Credit 156-159 - Seems like a good board, can find one in my size range, and supposed to be good for all mountain freestyle. Also, price point is right around what I'm looking for.
2011 K2 Turbo Dream 159 - From what I've read this would be a great board for me, but the price is just a little too high for me and I can't find last year's model.
2010 Never Summer Evo-R 158 - Simply from this forum, heard a lot of good things about NS and this board. Can find the 2010 for a good price, can be used for all mountain freestyle, and obviously rock solid.
What do you guys think? The problems I'm having with buying a board is that my local shop only sells Burton, and if I buy online it would have to be from Canada. Shipping from the US is insane. Of course I could run over to Detroit if I need to. Thanks for the help!
