First board (help me pick)
I'm 5'8", ~140-145 pounds, snowboarded about 10 times, plan to get about 4-8 days in a season going forward.
I only do resorts for now and more interested in riding runs and turning well and being in control at both slow and fast speed than doing tricks on a park.
What board would work well for me? I'm guessing I'm an all-mountain but don't want to limit myself with a directional board since I'm still new and end up goofy sometimes though mostly regular. Here were some recommendations from a store owner. Thoughts on which to get? Clash is cheapest but will I outgrow it too fast or not perform as well as others? I'm leaning towards the Air with maybe Clash or CHB in 2nd.
Burton Air - all-mountain, burton website says directional? is this a problem?
Burton Clash - burton website also says directional?
Burton Blunt - freestyle board - don't I want all-mountain?
Gnu CHB - freestyle
Gnu CHB w/ MTX (seems about the same)
GNU riders choice - freestyle
Salomon Ace - (can't find this one really in stores or online in 156)
