First board buyer's remorse
Hey all, this is my first post!
After reading tons on this forum I decided to check out some of the deals at my local shop this past weekend to get my own board for next season. I knew what I wanted/needed, but all of the boarders in the shop were big mountain camber guys, so they talked me into buying a Burton Custom camber 158. I'm 6'00 170 lbs, so this would be a pretty good fit size wise. It's a 2012 and I got it for $360+tax. I thought this was a pretty good deal, but after I walked out of the store I was unsure of my purchase. they had k2 slayblades, turbo dreams, burton custom restriced boards, a carbon credit that was a 162, plenty of burton boards including custom rocker (no flying v). So I took out my selection told the rep that I had just started this year, but I've been doing board sports all my life, so I picked it up extremely quickly. On my last day I was doing off piste glades at killington and double blacks. Now I loved the glades, but the main mountain I'll be on doesn't get too much snow. I'd like to learn to butter and do some natural feature jumps, but mainly I'll be going downhill and hopefully trying to get in the trees again! I'm in the east coast, so I won't be getting much powder. Basically will this board suffice for me? should I sell it and get something else? I can probably trade it back in at the store for something of equal or lesser value, but not for certain. They'll let me trade it in for the custom restricted though.
Sorry for the long newbie post, but any advice you guys could offer would be great
