'11 Society UL or '10 Danny Kass or '09 Salomon Answer

Hello Boarding Enthusiasts.

I will be purchasing my first board - second hand. The board choices are listed in the title and all of them are in very good condition.

I've been boarding for 5 years using rentals or friends boards and then went on a 8 year hiatus. Recently, came back to the sport and consider myself an intermediate rider looking for an all mountain/freestyle board. Mostly, boarding on the east coast Tremblant, Blue Mt., Horseshoe and have been out a dozen times so far, enjoying the speed and carving.

My friends don't believe me when I tell them I haven't boarded in 8 years because I can straight board some black runs at Blue Mt. and Horseshoe and straight board the blues at Tremblant. They say I'm advanced but I consider myself an intermediate due to the lack of experience. However, I will be going twice a week this season at the hills in Ontario and planned 2 more weekend trips to Tremblant.

I weigh 185 lbs, stand 6 feet tall, and have a size 11 boot.

Choices:
'11 Ride Society UL (160)- I'm afraid this board is too aggressive for me but for the price it seems like a deal I shouldn't pass up.
'10 Danny Kass BTX (not sure of size yet) - never rode on a rocker before so I don't know what to expect.
'09 Salomon Answer (159)

Your thoughts and input would greatly be appreciated.

The Society is a sick board. Tons of pop and light. It's not really an all-mountain board, but you can use it for that. It is a centered twin. It's also not going to be the best powder board either.

If you are just doing groomer runs, it will be sick. If you do jumps, it will be sick. If you carve, it will be sick.

The Danny Kass is stiffer than the Society. It also has Magnetraction which is awesome on ice. Last season was my first time on any type of rockered boards. I found Lib Tech's and GNU's boards to be a pretty easy transition. The rocker shape is awesome for powder and also allows for less edge catching.
