Question Board recommendation please

I've sold my TRS 151 and I need some recommendations for an all mountain freestyle board and a freeride board.
Stats, intermediate rider, 140 lbs, size 7 mens boots, I like going on steeps and and sometimes through trees.

Why'd you sell your TRS?

Seems to be what you are looking for, although it may be a bit soft.

Lol, a burton feather. Seriously though, are you planning on growing a little, or something? Id have thought the TRS would have been a good board for what you wanted. Maybe a neversummer heritage, or a proto ct if you like twins?

I was thinking that as I typed it. Aside from the snow board shape, which you know, is great because you can ride switch the same as regular, two sisters born on the same day would be appealing as well. Unless they're fugly.

I donno I think I would count two fugly chicks as one decent chick... Lol

The Ride DH is a good solid all around board. It comes in two modles
DH is traditional camber
DH 2 is rides prorize rocker witch on a subtle rocker

I sold the 151 since I think I should be riding the TRS 149 slims, I found the TRS a tad harder to turn going over moguls. Since I'm shopping right now I thought might as well pick everyone's brain on what boards I should consider.
I didn't find the 151 soft at all, it had the right dampness for me, I found the CHB too soft.

And Fattrav, no I don't plan on growing since I'm fully grown smart ass.

Damn, I would have thought you'd not get that much time off from racing horses to snow board? Seriously though, if you like the trs then get it the slim version. See if you can get a demo in one first though. And I take back the advice on the neversummers, I think the smallest size isl possibly too long for what you're after, the Evo goes small enough but it's probably to soft for what you want.
