skate banana, youngblood chillydog or flying V

I will be living in vail this season and want to upgrade my equipment as i will be riding everyday for the next 3 months. I am an intermediate rider(Ride almost any terrain with ease and have started to pull off some 3's) who spends 60 percent of my riding time in the park and 40 doing some freeride. I have already chosen my bindings (Union Forces), will try some boots at different stores (I am between three> burton hail, grail, or the thirty two lashed), but won't be able to try my board until i buy it and take it to the mountain.That's why i want to be really sure that the board i spend my money on is the right one for me.

Doing some research, i have been down to three> the Burton Flying V Custom, the Lib Tech Skate Banana and the Forum Youngblood Chillydog. I would like to hear some advice from you about buying any of these boards (compare them if possible) or any other board suggestion that suits my riding style. thanks in advance.

I'd step up to either the Youngblood DoubleDog or Destroyer Chili. I think the Custom is just not better enough for the money and well you already DON'T have Burton bindings. Center to flat rocker in my opinion does no work well, so I'll suggest against the Banana. Chili and Arbor's system rocker are the only center reverses I've ridden without some sort of recamber that I did like. Others you may want to consider are the Flow Era or CAPiTA Green Maching FK. I have reviews of both in the review section.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
