I might buy a new board for my next trip, but I will buy it up there its cheaper. It all depends if the wallet allows me to do it.
I am 5'10 and 143lbs, I have decided the size of the board to be 154, since I consider my 155 to be just a tad to big and my friends 153 a little to small. I like riding free riding mostly, but I would love to get into the park without loosing the ability to do powder and glades. The main problem of my current board is that is as stiff as a slab of concrete, I would love a flexible board to play around in the glades.
Are there any drawbacks with flexible boards in freeriding, I know that they are good for the park but I am not sure what happens in the rest of the slopes.
Also any advice in boards in particular that I should get and how much should I pay for them?
I hope I can get the money together. If not ill just ride my piece of wood
