Had the same board for 10 years

Please help me pick a new board. I am female 50 years old 5'2 and 120 pounds. I wear size 7 boots. I just like to go down the mountain. I can only go about 5 times a year because I live in Florida. I've had the same Burton Balance board for about 10 years. I need a new board. I was looking at the Burton Feel Good Flying V. I like to ride mostly blues and some blacks. Thanks for your help!

It had been a while since I last bought, and things have changed a bit. If your last board was 10 years ago odds are it is a traditional camber board. The Flying V is a reverse camber board so it would feel a bit more loose or surfy. This can get complicated but is explained really well here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-between.html. Some of the rocker and camber profiles might interest you as they offer a bit of both worlds. But, there is also nothing wrong with sticking with traditional camber if you are comfortable with it. Check out http://www.shayboarder.com/reviews, a great blog where she does a lot of board reviews.

Camber Rocker Camber (used in the Flying V) will be a nice initiation for you into the world of modern profile designs. There are a lot of great boards out there for you and i can see you really enjoying being able to demo a few to check out the (significant) differences betwwen them and your cambered Balance. If you decide on the Feelgood, I would suggest the 144 cm.

Happy riding!
