Snowboard Recommendation Please!
Iím looking to buy a new board but am not quite sure where to start. I currently ride an 07/08 Salomon Lush 143 with Burton Lexa bindings. I got this board as a gift, and have found even though its a freestyle board, it has kinda lost its pop after riding it for 4 years. Iím 5′1, 105lbs, boot size 7, and am an intermediate-advance rider. I do most of my riding in VT, and am looking for a board that will handle well on icy blacks but still be playful in the park. I demoíd the Feelgood Flying V 140 this past weekend and thought it was a pretty solid ride. I loved having a shorter board because felt I had more control. I felt that the Feelgood provided just enough pop in the park and handled curves on blacks as well. Iím skeptical whether to purchase this now or to try a few other rocker/camber hybrids out first. Iíve heard some good things about the Salomon Ivy, Rome LoFi Rocker, NeverSummer Infinity, and Arbor Push. What do you think of these boards? Are there any other boards you would recommend? What do you think the best board is for my riding style and money? Any input is appreciated!
