Question 152 Ride Agenda, 153 Forum Manual, and 152 Ride Crush

Hello, I seeking out a new snowboard as I currently have a crap LTD Quest 149.

A little background: I have snowboarded now for 2 seasons and am addicted. My current board has lasted me through the training stages, but now I want to progress. It has very uncomfortable bindings but I am all set and will last me until I get my new one.

What I am looking for: I am looking for a softer board as my current board requires A LOT of force to get it to bend. I ride around with friends hitting little jumps people have made or have naturally come doing little 180's and things. I do go down groomers, but not blazing fast, just a cruise hitting and ollie'ing anything I want. This year, I am going to hit small-medium jumps and boxes along with rails. Is a board that can do all of that in my list and under $350?

Thanks a lot.

Wrong link the first time, try again.

Basically for under or at $350 this is one of the best if not the best stick you can get. The sidecut on it is my favorite on the market and the convex base makes edge transitions super smooth.

Awesome! Def in the mix, found one online for $200. Sick! Now, I just need to save. I am seriously thinking about it because out of all of those, this one was the only one labeled ALL MOUNTAIN freestyle, the rest are just park.

The 2011 is a different board than the one he reviewed. The 2011 is still a rad board, but not as poppy and a little washy at higher speeds. I would still pick it over even a 2012 of your other three options though.

Wow. That's saying a lot. I know there are 2012's for 300, still under my budget. Better get to mowing lawns and soon raking. I'm still just a teenager, so my mom might split it with me like she did my pants and jacket.
