Choosing a board
Okay all - first post here and I'm looking for help. Yeah, it's another "What to buy" thread! Hope you guys can help me out.

Stats on me:

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 175
Boot : 12 (suggests midwide board, but that's only what I've read)

I'd call myself "intermediate", but have only rented and never owned a board. I'm finally doin it cause I've moved to a slightly colder climate and will start going more regularly. For the most part I've been doing nothing but groomers, but am looking to get more into park riding as I get better. Not looking at any powder where I am so not worried about that.

Looking for something I can ride for multiple seasons (not looking to upgrade year after year) and something that won't break the bank (sub 400 would be awesome).

My biggest problem is that I have a tendency to want the best and newest, but I know my talent really can't justify that most of the time.

So, all that in mind - help me out! I need some suggestions and I need them fast!

Thanks much!

So do you want a park board or all mountain freestyle? any brands you've considered? I can suggest popular brands with members on this site. Bataleon, Neversummer, K2, Capita, Libtech, Ride, Rome, Arbor....

Honestly I'm looking for something all-mountain that if I take in the park it won't make things too difficult (If that makes sense at all..)

I've looked a bit into just about all those brands actually - and honestly I'm just lost in a sea of choices! haha. I'm hoping some people here can narrow me down a bit more.

Ok, here are some suggestions.
Bataleon Evil Twin
Neversummer SL
Ride DH2
Capita Indoor Survival FK
Libtech Skate Banana
Rome Artifact
K2 Slayblade

those are all pretty popular boards and i hear only good things about. Out of the list i think your best bet is the Bataleon Evil Twin, Neversummer SL, or Capita Indoor Survival. That's just my 2 cents.
