Default New Board

Hey guys,

I've been riding for about 5 years now, still on my first board the burton blunt 155. I have been a full time student for most of my snowboard life, so haven't had the money to buy a new one. I really don't like the Blunt anymore, too stiff and not challenging anymore. I'm 6 foot, 170lbs, and wear a 10.5 boot. I believe that my board is a little to small for me, looking to get a 156-157 board. I want something that a more of an advanced board. I'm more of a freestyle rider I would say, I love jumping off little jibs, flying down trails, and hitting some boxes. If you guys could give me some advice that would be great.

Are you still a starving student or do you have a little money to spend?

I'm good now, haha I will graduate in December, already have a job locked in, also working from school. The board doesn't need to be a 2012, could be a 2011, looking to buy nowish while still on sale. Just looking for a awesome and fun board.

I personally have a hard on for Never Summer Evo. It's gonna cost you between $400-$480 but is worth every penny imo.

And congrats on the upcoming graduation and job opp.

If I was your weight, I'd be picking between 3 boards. The NS evo, Arbor Westmark, and Arbor Blacklist. If the blacklist came in a smaller size I would have grabbed it. That said I have an Evo and can't wait to ride it.

The Flow Era gets some good marks as well. That's what I suggested to my friend who is just entering his second season and is trying to progress. 2011 Flow Era for less than $200. That is a damn good deal IMO. I see them in 155 and 158

Blacklist is ripe for you. Seriously one of the best built snowboards I have ever been on. 154 will be fine for your weight.

Another option, I have super high expectations for the Signal Park Flat and the Rocker Light was a really playful mtn-doable board.
