Default Ride DH2 vs Burton Air

Hey guys,

I'm looking to buy my first board after 2 and a half weeks of boarding.. I'm carving well (would like to improve more and more though) and starting to hit up the baby parks (kickers and boxes).

I prefer messing about on the mountain with ollies and buttering, rather than nailing speed.

Does the Ride DH2 or Burton Air fit in with what I'm looking for? Both 2009/2010 models. Or is another snowboard more applicable?

As for length I'm thinking a 154 would be best for my 65kg weight..?

Cheers,
Dan

I can't say much about the Burton Air (I thought they stopped making those in the late 90s?) but the DH2 is fairly stiff for messing around and buttering. It's more of a jump board. 154 is a good length for you though.

How much are these boards? Normally you can get a 2011 or even 2012 board for a very low price and those are generally to prefer over a 2009.

Thanks for the reply Basti. Around 70 for the boards (no bindings). What board would you recommend for all mountain messing around? something light and pretty flexible, yet effective when turning so it helps me to avoid catching any edges?
