Male what board?

wazzup guys,
i'm european so i appologise for my english in advance.

I'm 21, live in Maastricht, Holland
173 cm and 67 Kg

I'm getting back into snowboarding after 5 years due to an accident when i was 16.

My old gear was/is pretty f*ck*d. So i'm looking into some new gear...

I saw a nice Burton Custom V-rocker 154 but it's a bit over my budget, even in sales.

does anyone know a good replacement for this board (doesn't need to be burton, however is does need to go nicely with
the burton EST exile bindings size M i've ordered!) Save on Burton Exile EST Snowboard Bindings Blk/Wht Rev - Mens Snowboards Binding Snowboarding Gear Equipment

please help this ''rusty'' snowboarder out that wants to get back into park, rails and jibbs

xoxo Nick B

EST burton bindings only work with burton boards that have the channel mounting system. so if you want to use those bindings you will have to use a burton board.

You can try eBay, if you look hard enough, you'll find some ridiculous sales

Another vote for the Hero. It's a fun park board and goes well with your bindings.

You say you want a twin, the TWC Standard is not a twin. Burton says it has a directional flex and shape. I own a Custom Flying V and have ridden the Hero, it's too bad prices are so high in Holland. The Custom and Hero can be found here in the $250-$325 range.
