Thumbs up New board, on a budget

Hi, Im and intermediate rider who will be riding the park and the whole mountain at the same time, so i am looking for a board that can handle both things reasonably well. i am only looking at spending $350 at the max.

My specs:
Height: 5,4
Weight:115
Shoe size: 10

I have been looking at last years Skate Banana and this years Flow Verve and i am open to all recommendations.
Thanks

Flow Verve is a good choice.
Salomon Drift Rocker can be had for $350 brand new, or much less for one from last season. Shoreline has them for $233.97 (last years).

yeah if you're on a budget just shoot for anything from last year

or you can check out the trade part of the forum. You may be able to get a new or darn close to new board from other forum members at a great price. Just depends how much time you wanna spend on here

Don't forget the Flow Era, for something slightly stiffer than the Verve

Although at your weight perhaps the Verve would be better.
