All Mountain Board Suggestions
 
Once an intermediate rider. Moved away from the mountains but hope to make it out for a few outings per season. Would like to upgrade from the antique sticks I have been riding.

5'9" 165lbs. Really like the 157 size.

I do more freeriding than park tricks, especially now that I don't get out as much as I used too. I felt an all mountain board would be fine for going fast down blues and blacks, yet forgiving enough I can pick it up and ride after lengthy intervals between trips to the slope. (agree?)

So my question: Any good ideas for boards to look at? Something from a few years ago that I could pick up used would be nice too.

Appreciate the input.

not from a few years ago, but add the burton process 157 cm to your list.

It seems to do everything well.

the k2 raygun seems like a solid do-everything-well-to-decent board based on reviews online, from shoppies, and from riding my friend's.

what is your budget?

Its tough to suggest a specific older board as what you find used or on ebay is a crapshoot.

Also if you wait a few months you will be able to get deals on this years models.

I went with 157 Lib Tech Skunk Ape! Great all around board.

I understand what you mean, but I really haven't set a budget. My hope here is to get a list of boards that meet or exceed my skill level, then when one pops up for a good deal, either used, or as you said, as an end of season deal, I will pull the trigger. I'd just like a quality board, which will hopefully last me a long time.

For now I have my old standby (and I do mean old), but would like to get rolling on getting sometime that fits me a little better.

No specific order, but these are boards that I have ridden that I have really liked as all around boards.

Lib tech trs c2btx
Arbor Coda
Neversummer SL (proto would probably be better for you but never rode it)
Banana magic

Here is a good deal on the 2011 arbor coda Arbor Coda Snowboard 2011

And I have a 2012 trs c2btx for sale if you are interested http://www.snowboardingforum.com/buy...btx-157-a.html

If you want a banana magic, I would wait a couple more months, thats when they usually drop in price.

I'm a lib fan and would throw the T.Rice in there as a great all mt. stick. More free ride oriented than the TRS and probably geared more for your size than the Skunk Ape which is like a TRS for big dudes (wider waist).

I also rode and liked the Rossi Angus Amptek and OneMagTek.

My favorites have been the Signal Omni, Arbor Coda, Flow Drifted, Flow Infinite rocker, Nitro Team Gullwing, or a K2 Turbo Dream or Raygun.
