Buying a new board
Hey guys im looking to buy a new board for next season.
heres the general info on me:
Boot size: 9
Currently i have a 155cm 5150 vice snowboard that i picked up cheap for my first board. I have only been riding this past season but I think I have made incredible progress in one season. As for the type of riding I will be doing, it will mostly be on the groomers, in the park if its in good condition and in and out of the trees on good snow days. So I will pretty much be kinda everywhere. I also like to ride down the mountain fast but at the same time, i want a board that would be agile if I go through the trees.
I have been lurking around this forum for a while to get a feel of the advices you guys give and these are the boards I sort of narrowed it down to
These boards are the ones i chose because of the rocker flat rocker shape. The thing is, do rocker boards live up to all the hype I seem to notice? How are park boards when going down fast on a groomed run?
The other choice i had in mind was Ride highlife UL since it seems to be pretty versatile from what i heard
Are there any other boards you guys recommend?
Is it a good time to buy a board right now or should i wait till the start of next season?
