I want a fun jack of all trades.....
I've been lurking this forum for a couple month's now. There is a lot of useful information on this website and most of you seem like you know what you're talking about. Thanks.
I am 5 feet 9 inches tall, my weight fluctuates between 150lbs and 155lbs. Most of my riding will be done in Southern California, along with the occasional trip to Mammoth. I'd say I'm at about intermediate level, been spending a bit of time practicing riding switch. I like hitting every part of the mountain, nonstop from open til close. Been getting into park a bit more recently, but as of right now my favorite type of run would include hitting a black, carving most of the way and bombing the last third of it. On the way down I'd hit a few kickers and a couple boxes, no rails for me (yet).
I currently ride a ten year old Burton Custom 156 with 2009 Cartel's (size M), and 2009(?) Burton Ozone boots (size 10). I will be keeping my current bindings/boots and putting them on my new board. My current camber board is nice but I am especially interested in lib tech/gnu C2BTX and Never Summer RC. As most of you know SoCal condition's aren't always perfect so Magnetraction and Vario Grip tech seem like attractive options to me. I also have a eleven year old Gnu Altered Genetics 159 that I will keep for powder days when coverage is thin (beater).
Board's I'm interested in are
T. Rice Pro
Apart from these I've also been recommended the Ride berzerker, DC Ply, and Rossignol One Magtek.
I'm open to any and all suggestions, and would really appreciate some advice from riders who have tried any of these boards.
