Board for all mountain/freestyle ride in the NE

Looking for a board for my buddy. Preferably something that can be got from the list of boards at evo.com outlet for around 250-300 after the discount.

6'0 170 size 10 shoe. intermediate ride 50/50 split between park and rest of moutain. Mainly will be frequenting seven springs and other NE resorts (aka lots of groomers)

I'm not entirely sure but I can lead ya in the right direction. Maybe look for a flat camber. Someone is probably gonna send you towards a Never Summer Hybrid since it's supposed to be the all mountain board, but they get pretty expensive.

Flow makes cheaper boards that are good. Have heard good things about the Era and Verve
Salomon Drift is cheap and highly regarded as a good park stick with all mountain capability
Signal makes boards for under $400 new with loads of tech

Don't really want to get off topic, but wth is up with your credits. 99999999999999999999999
Oh, and I second what Cheese says. All good companies there, Salomon is pretty durable too. Never rode the other two but I've seen them in action and they looked pretty good.

Nevermind, your credits just changed.

Woah, may be looking at the wrong board, but it said the flex is a 3. That's crazy.

Oh, alright that makes sense. I mean it's preference anyway, it doesn't mean a lot of flex is bad. I've just never seen one with that much flex.
