All mountain freestyle board
Hello everyone. This is my first post here on SBF and I'm sure you see dozens of threads like this every day, but I'm looking to buy a snowboard. This past winter was my first year snowboarding; I got on the mountain about 12-15 times, and while I'm far from an expert, I'd like to think I'm not half bad at this point.
The first few days I used a Burton LTR I rented from Mountain Creek and used a fairly stiff cambered Burton board that I rented from a nearby shop the rest of the season. I only did all mountain at first but got into the park about halfway through the season and really enjoyed it (overall I spent maybe 60% of my time in the park), so I'm looking for a board that's able to handle both well. I won't be encountering much powder, mostly groomers and some ice.
I am 5'10", weigh 165 give or take a couple pounds, and have size 11.5 boots. My toes seemed to stick out a bit too far on both of the boards I used, so I assume I need a wide board. I have read good reviews for the Never Summer Proto CTX and Revolver and have heard good things about the Skate Banana, Horrorscope, Riders Choice, and Blacklist as well. Unfortunately I can no longer find any on sale Proto CTXs online, only through Never Summer, but I don't want to pay $540 for a board. My budget is under about $450 for the board alone. I was planning on pairing it with some Flow bindings if that makes a difference. I'm also curious as to what length the board I buy should be.
Thanks in advance for the input.
