Freestyle/All mountain Reviews

I am looking to start a new snowboard experience of combining both all mountain and some jumps and rails. i love the overall quality aspect of the board im riding and am looking for a good one to snag up.

I have looked at the technine icon board 2012 - rossignol angus/taipan - gnu riders choice and thats really just a little bit of looking

im 5'11 and 180lbs and looking to do it all. i heard rumors of a 154-157 would be good.

Any thoughts

The Icon is a pricepoint park stick. Not great edgehold and camber...

Look at the Flow Era, Arbor Westmark/Blacklist, Coda if you're more concerned around the mountain, Nitro Pro One Off Smith or Eero, or a K2 Raygun.

I own an 2011 150 Signal Park, 2009 152 Nitro Subpop, 2012 150 Flow Shifty, and a 154 2010 CAPiTA Indoor FK.

And will either be adding a 152 Signal Park Flat or something special of my own design.

Forum Destroyer (cambered) is good at doing everything. If you like R&C, there's doubledog as an option, too.
