Just found out my board is dunzo!

Well my good old 06' Burton Uninc 154 is toast. The tail of it has a pretty nasty crack. I let one of my buddies ride it last year while I was away it school in mass. Needless to say im not that unhappy LOL. I'm gonna keep it for a jibbin around board until it snaps off.

I NEED A NEW ALL MOUNTAIN/FREESTYLE BOARDDDD. Yes, the time has come. I would say im in the park 50% of the time. The other 50 im bombing hills, carving and just messing around. I haven't bought a new board since then and man....they're is so many options out there and new terminology to the tech thats out there.

So, what the hell should I get.... funny thing is i went to my local board shop and the guy recommended me a Never Summer LOL ( after reading on this board that everyone has one).Oh and price isn't really an option im gonna buy something that last for another 5+ yrs

stats:

6'3
190-5lbs
12 boot

I guess What im lookin at is either one of the never summer models or a burton custom? what you think? suggestions? no wide boards.

thanks fellas

First....why no wide boards? Size 12 boot? Good luck man...

Do you prefer good ole' camber boards? Reverse Camber? Hybrid?

I highly recommend you demo some boards or do a little more research. It's really hard to say.

Both too big. You crazy.


Try an Arbor Coda 157, Arbor Westmark 156, Nitro Team Gullwing 155/57, Nitro Rook 156, or one of the Pro One Offs in about your size, Bataleon Goliath 156, or a Ride Buckwild 155/157.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I have never heard of any of those boards but I will definetly look them up. And wide boards are discriminatory to my feet.

I get away with no wide and wear a 12 boot, though I do ride in the 161-164 range so the waist is not as narrow as some smaller sizes. 12 is kind of the tipping point between wide and normal.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely sure you could fit with a 12. I mean I wear an 11 and have a hard time finding boards...

But to be 100% totally against wide boards?

I find it very odd...

the reason i put that size is that he's a big dude

also that size board will fit his feets better.

i guess i would go smaller if i was only jibbing at the park and smaller kickers. but big jumps, pipe, bombing runs and cruising he wont have much stability on those smaller noodle boards. 160 is as small as i would go.

i admit i am biased twars larger boards, im 165 lbs and i ride a 157 banana magic for pretty much everything and a option free 165 when i want to go way to fast on groomers
