How to replace a Suprateam

As you can tell by the title I have had my board a while (5 years) and it's finally given up the ghost. In the meantime they seem to have changed snowboarding and so I'm demoing everything I can.

Tried a rocker board in NZ and it felt ok but a bit tame. Tried a zero camber rocker back in the UK and it's all just a bit like a gentle walk in the park. I get what they're doing with the boards but it just aint for me. Tried out a Burton Custom Flying V which was a step in the right direction but still short of the mark. I like the board a bit nastier - something that will chew me up and spit me off when I try to cruise but will just keep on giving when you give it the beans.

Anyone got any recommendations for other boards I should demo? I am a punter riding 2-3 weeks a year so not the big backcountry and not the huge booters. I do ride some park and have recently started playing in the pipe.

Cheers for any help

Burly boards would be the Signal OG, Salomon Mans board, Ride DH2 or Arcade UL, Nitro Factory Rook, or a K2 Protohype.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
