beginner/intermediate want to progress, what board should i get? allmountain?


I want to learn to be a more freestyle orientated rider. I love cruizin of-piste, hitting small natural jumps. I want to learn spins,butters, rails, boxes,small kicks and have fun in the terrainpark aswell as of-piste. I dont need a board thats good for racing down the piste, cause i find it boring.


After researching I reckon I want a board thats rocker/rockerhybrid, directional twinshape, with a quite soft flex. a board thats forgiving, easy to progress on, fun to ride and still rides well in the pow.
Iíve looked at some different boards:

never summer proto ct

forum bully

rossi angi

lib-tech skate banana

burton Nug-( i read a review in a norwegian snowboardmag and it sounded right up my alley)

burton process flying v

burton custom flying v

burton clash?

which board do you think best would suit my ridingstyle and ambitions? either the abovementioned or other boards.

im 6í1, 194 lbs, boot size 11
PS. please excuse my english.

Any thougts are very welcommed

Everyone has their favorites so I'm sure you're going to get a wide range of responses here. My only comment was regarding the NS ProtoCT option. The ProtoCT is not a directional twin, it is a true twin. For what you've described, in the NeverSummer line I would suggest the SL. It is a directional twin and will stand up to to a wide variety of riding disciplines. It won't be the best board in the park, nor the best board off-piste but it will be damn good across the entire mountain.

Good luck!

Thank you MeanJoe!

I dont know fore sure that a directional twin is what i need, its just my assumption, on the basis of how i want to progress and how my ridingstyle is. All i know is how I ride now and what i want to get better at and i want to get the best board possible to bring me there. Thank you very much for the tip on the sl though. I'll check it out.
