First board ! (thread #4112)

Hey all,

I have been riding for 2 years, this a couple weeks a year.
With our annual snowboardtrip comming closer, I decided I want to buy my first board.
I'm far off a good rider but over these years I've been progressing a lot: 180's, bigger jumps, grabs etc are starting to work off smoothly.
I got a budget of 550-600 euro to work with, this for bindings and a board.
I'm looking for an allround board, something thats not to stiff so I can do some park, jumps all over the mountain, ... on the other side it may not be to flexy so it doesnt get to sketchy when I want to ride it hard.

After looking around and reading lots of reviews I've found a couple boards wich might suit me:

- K2 Brigade
- K2 Raygun

The Brigade is being seen as an entry board, nevertheless they have pretty similar specs.

- price (Raygun priced 100 euro more than the Brigade)
- Brigade : catch free rocker
Raygun : All terain rocker
- Raygun has hybridtaper

Would the Raygun be worth the extra money?
If I would go for a K2 board, K2 Indy's would be my pick for the bindings.
I've have been reading some good review about those, sharply priced for decent looking bindings.
Annyone experience with them, or would suggest me others ?

- Nitro team gullwing

Allround board, comming in at a good price.
It has evrything I expect from a board, but is it as good as it sounds?
Annyone got experience with the team series from Nitro ?
If I'd go for the Nitro I would take the Raiden Blackhawk bindings.
Annyone got experience with those? They look decent.

Feel free to post other boards or advice, thanks in advance !

i rode a nitro board for 4 years and i can't say anything bad about it. i haven't used their gullwing but their team boards have always been good. gullwing is the same thing that never summer does and people around here really like them. i just bought a never summer myself. have you considered them? never summer SL would work well for you i believe.

edit: i just looked at the price range you're looking at, the never summer boards are probably too expensive.
