Help with choosing a board
Boot size: 10
Riding style: Mostly pow and backcountry with some groomers, thinking of hitting the park a little bit
Age: 35, yeah I'm old
budget: $450 max
location of riding: NW (Summit at Snoqualmie to be exact)
Ability level: Beginner
Background: I'm pretty much a noob at snowboarding lol I've been reading up a lot recently trying to get as much info before the season starts as I can.
I've been riding for 2 years. Last year was when I got really interested and now I'm hooked. I only went like 6 times last season but I'm getting a season pass
this year so I'm going to be out as often as I can. I usually hit the pow in the backcountry and go on the groomers every now and then. I'm thinking of trying
out the park this year. From what I've gotten so far, I think that I need a camber or a camber hybrid (tell me if I"m wrong). I'm looking for suggestions for specific
boards that you think I should get along with the recommended size.
I've been looking at:
Manic Snowboard | All Mountain | Ride Snowboards 2011-2012
Barracuda Snowboard | Burton Snowboards
Salomon Snowboards & Bonfire Snowboarding Titan-Color - salomon-gear
Salomon Snowboards & Bonfire Snowboarding Burner - salomon-gear
Salomon Powder Snake
Salomon Snowboards & Bonfire Snowboarding Powder Snake-Color - salomon-gear
DH Snowboard | Park & Pipe | Ride Snowboards 2011-2012
GNU Dirty Pillow
GNU Snowboards Dirty Pillow
Rome Agent Snowboard | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2012
I know that this a huge selection but I'm trying to narrow down my choices and looking for any suggestions/tips.
Thanks in advance!
