Exclamation Help picking new board?

Hey everyone, I am looking to take advantage of all the sales on snowboards going on now and possibly the future and I was wondering what you guys would think I should purchase. I am 5'5 and I weigh 130 lbs and I am a size 9/9.5 in boots, I am an intermediate snowboarder and I am not to sure of my waist but yeah I wear a 30 size pants I guess? if that helps? ( I do wear them low though ;P) Haha, anyway I was looking into;

Capita HorrorScope FK
Capita Indoor Survival FK
Capita Ultrafear FK
Rome Artifact Rocker
Technine Jib
Signal Park
Stepchild Jibstick
And suggestions are very welcome

Anyway you probably already know I am getting into/ already into park and jibbing and am looking for a board that can handle 80% park/jib AND 20% all mtn/ cruising (With the family and such). Also if you know of a website that has amazing prices on snowboards please let me know! Thanks for the help!

Jibstick, Park, Nitro Swindle, Artifact Rocker, Ride Kink, K2 Weapon, Arbor Draft, Ultrafear, Horror, Indoor FK. That order.

Still growing go for a 152ish. Done growing go for a 150ish.

Well is there any reason you put the boards in that order? And How come the Capita boards are so low? Are they really that bad?

Oddly enough I like the company, but for what you want I don't like your choices. I don't like the Horror or the Ultrafear cause they have Urban FK, which felt to loose to me and just bad. I just don't like Indoors for Jibbing.

Add the Green Machine FK and put it first if you're interested in that. That was one of my favorite park boards I rode this year.

That's just the order I prefer them in. I just like the way the boards rode in that order.

Ultimately, I don't think so. I don't think its X amount of $$ better than some of the others.

Your best for the $$ is probably the Swindle.

How do you feel about the Forum Contract? I was just watching some of F*** it and I am loving that board! I checked it out and it's price is not high either, yes? no? Or maybe even the Scallywag?

The Scallywag fits in with the Jibstick, but the Contract isn't any softer and is positive camber. You probably wont like it on jibs.

Even the Scallywag 2009/2010? I found one on Kijiji for 200 with Burton Mission bindings, definitely thinking of picking it up! ( no gouges only cosmetic scratches, none on the top sheet)

Last years lacked pop. Just a hair softer since this years is Chili with Pop. That's not a bad deal, but if you haven't seen it in person its hard to tell whether there is anything "cosmetic" to worry about and whether the person selling it is even knowledgeable enough to tell the difference between cosmetic and something that might delam in 6 months.
