Need help picking out a board...
Hey im looking for a board that can preform nice in powder and park. Ive snowboarded for a couple of years and im looking to progress so i need a nice board.

It's important for me that the board is a "twin" board. I'm quite tall (1.9m) so i should probably go for a 158 board? And with my height i have about size 12 boots (46) so should i choose a wide board?

I appriciate all advice;) Thanks

most everyone here is gonna say neversummer, lib tech or gnu

...but I'm gonna say bataleon riot - it's a true twin and comes in a 159 cm. If you don't like the 2011 graphics, specs haven't changed in the past few seasons.

Bataleons have a little wider waist widths on their standard boards than most. I wear about 11 size boots on my 155 cm riot.

Well the thing is.. with pow you're gonna wanna run big and with the park you're gonna run smaller. You're gonna definitely want to go with a wide board in most cases. At 1.8m I'd think you are gonna have to go with at least a 160 but it really depends on how much you weigh

im selling a never summer SL in 155. i think itll be ok for your weight especially int he park, and witht he rocker in it and dampness/weight of the board, it should be stable for charging and float well inpow too. pm me if you're interested!

hmmm how much for said NS board. we're bringing these into our shop likely next season but i dunno if I can wait until then. Then again maybe I can finagle the rep to lend us some demo boards. But yeah it sounds like about 155 for park, maybe 160 for freeride.

How about the Forum Recon board? It's not too expensive and seems nice for park, but i don't know how it does in POW!
