Getting ready to buy my 1st board/setup
Ok initially I was gonna do the dumb thing and just buy a vapor because I picked one up and it was light as crap, looked good, costed alot so must be the best right!?!?
Then I decided to do research and found that though it's a nice board it may not be for me so I'm going to list all I know to list and look here for guidance.
Experience: I've only been snowboarding a couple times but i picked it up instantly and have already progressed enough to surpass my wifes ability who has been going for years(not saying much since she's a pretty timid boarder) we don't get to go alot so when we do it's primarily on a groomed mountain. Although and am wanting to hit up parks and go more freestyle as I progress. I am pretty fearless, which is why I think I picked it up so quickly.
145lbs (150ish all geared up)
Boot size 9(basing off my moto boots, 1st time I went boarding I can't remember what size boots I got and last time I ASKED for 9 but they only had 9.5... Which felt good at the time but at the end of the day my acheles was rubbed raw from heal lift)
Boarding style: beginner all mtn freestyle
I'm wanting to learn more freestyle though once I have better control and something that will still be fun for a little all mountain and from what I have gathered from alot of reading I need a pretty flexible board since I'm so light. As far as length goes I'm thinking 155-157
I have a few boards in mind and would like some opinions and am also up to advice on anything that will better suit my needs
burton custom or custom flying v
(would like to know the pro's and cons of the two)(also would like to know real world flex on these compared to the others I've listed since Burton does a crappy job of listing how their boards really flex)
also thinking about a neversummer sl or evo
(even though its not a burton i would like some comparative feedback on these)
I will primarily looking for all mountain freestyle or freestyle board, i live in texas so the places i would be going would be like Ski Apache in Ruidoso NM(most of the time since its closest), Wolf creek in Pagosa Springs CO, and other various places similar places in Colorado.
That should be enough to get this party started!
