New board for me?!?!?
I started looking into the boards so that I can find something less expensive used or from last season at the end of this season..
I just got a Lib Tech Dark Series 06 used from a buddy, and got the chance to try it for a couple of days already this season. The board came with '10 K2 Formula bindings and I also got new Nike Vapen boots size 10,5...
I will have plenty of time to ride on the east coast this winter and although I'm not much capable of park yet I'm pretty good doing bomb runs. I used to rent the full sets from the resorts, so this board has been a big upgrade for me and believe it or not, I could totally feel the difference as far as the balance and control on ice.
So I'm planning to use this board as much as I can this winter and by the end of season, get a new board that is either brand new, or used little bit. I don't have a price limit, but prob wouldn't want to pay more than $500.. I can keep my K2 Formula bindings because I think they're decent bindings and they're spotless... The boots - I'm happy so far, but just realized that I'm having some heel lift - I'll find a solution for that later..
The other idea would be to get into park this season more and learn it - I'm pretty sure it will be a blast, and get a board for park and keep the libtech.. As I understand the dark series is not the best for park?
So what do you guys think? Which way should I go and what brands-models should I consider? This is like a preliminary research to understand what I should be researching about, so if you guys could throw away some ideas, that'd be awesome!! BTW, I'm 6.0 and 200 lbs - and killer graphics don't really matter as long as the board performs very well.
