Recommendations for a new board ??

$400 is my budget, i have a 2006 Burton Clash and i feel like i need something a little better.

5'10 156 lbs

I mostly ride down the mountain carving, don't really spend too much time in the park although i would like to try a few jumps or something.

Thanks

carbon credit is a good choice, but look at capita as well. Both the horoscope and indoor survival are under $400.

Any specific questions about the Gnu?

Are there any other boards you're interested in or considering?

Thanks David, Have you ridden it ? Being as that i'm from Florida i don't really get to ride too much 4-6 days a year only on winter vacations. I've been snowboarding for about 7 years so maybe 30-40 days, i feel like i'm ready to move on from the burton clash i've been riding since '06 but do not know how the transition to a intermediate/advanced board will be.

Signal Omni, K2 Lifelike.

Omni is the best Camrock I've ridden and this year its stiffer between the feet and more responsive. Signals bases are super fast and in my experience (I own a Park from 2011) are pretty durable.

Yes, here's our review, should have all the details you're looking for but let me know if you have any specific questions.

In a nutshell, it's a solid board at a good price, well-suited for an intermediate rider who is not really spending a lot of time freestyle/park riding. As an all-mountain board, it is serviceable in the park and the rocker shape lends well to ground tricks like butters, etc., but it feels most at home just cruising regular groomed terrain.
