Time to get a new board..
Hey all. Been looking through the threads and you guys seem to be very helpful, so I figure I'll pick your brains. I'm an intermediate rider, started two years ago. First season I rented, second I bought a Rossignol Sultan with no name bindings. For this year, I got mission bindings, and my boots are very comfortable. I've always been one who finds a lot of fun in speed and shredding the groomers, I'd be looking to go down the steeper blacks this year(although, it is a small northeast mountain). I want to make an entrance into the park as well. I thought a good choice would be to stick with a cambered board as I'm working with now, to be able to maintain the stability at higher speeds. I'm looking at a 2011 Ride DH. It is park oriented, but seems to get great reviews all around, so what do you guys think? Also considering the K2 WWW, which is a rocker. The rocker appeals to me because it doesn't catch edges as much(with my technique, I rarely catch edges on a camber, I know it's not just the board) so I'd feel free to play around more. I don't want to sacrifice stability though. Both boards are around 250. A third choice would be the Rome Agent 2010 which is around 350, which has rocker technology but has great reviews all around. What would be best for my riding? Thank you and sorry for the long post but I figured I'd be thorough to get the best answers.
