Looking to get an all mountain setup

I am looking to finish a setup for when I relocate to Lake Tahoe area in January. I was lucky enough to get a pair of K2 Raider BOA's from my cousin for free so all I need now is some quality bindings and a board. I have been to the local shops to check out their limited selection, but nothing there has been worth the purchase just yet.

5.9" - 170lbs

I want to make a fun setup for all around boarding. (all mountain I guess). I would like to be able to hit the park but also be able to ride down the slopes just as well. From what I was told I should look to get things around the middle, Medium flex, etc. I have no preference for brand I just want a quality tried and true. As for the board I think I want to try something with a rocker-camber-rocker approach for a fun inbetween board that has the ability to shine and have some fun anywhere from what I have herd.

Just looking for some recommendations or deals I may have overlooked.

Thanks for the advice!

I went ahead and bought a Arbor Blacklist and some Burton Cartel's.
Just got finished mounting the bindings tonight.




Can't wait to get out on that mountain!

Yo Nivek! Do you have a ROOK? If so what do you think about it? I have one from last year I picked up for cheap. My questions is should I keep the Flow M9 SE's for it or install my old Targa's? I can return the Flow's back to BC!

I do not own one, but it made a really sweet jump stick for me. Really comfy off edge and great snap. The SE's should be able to handle it since you do have the aluminum heelcups. They are going to feel soft pushing into the edges of the highback though so you need to be a little more dialed on bigger jumps or you are going to push through the urethane and likely wash.

If youre not too too worried about big jumps then that should be a sick setup.
