Hey guys, Im looking at buying my first board and cant decide what i should go for. Ive only been 5 times before so id say im beginner-intermediate. Wanting to take the next step and buy instead of rent. I want and all mountain board - more into just cruising round rather than park. something more forgiving like an all terrain rocker (looking at k2 raygun) or i hear the new rage is hybrids camber rocker like the Forum holy moly board...supposedly this is a better board for intermediate-expert riders but i want to keep my board for a while and figure ill get better.
Just re-read...get a hybrid....c2btx or whatever, if ur half way aggressive you will pick it up well enough and you will have a board that has capacity to progress into.
really the above arguements are about do you want to be a freerider that does all mtn or do you want to be a freestyler that does all mtn...and a hybrid can allow either fr or fs rider to take advantage of the whole mtn with 1 board that can do most tricks to at least some adquate level or measure for most resort riders...kind of a bell curve thing. My hill happens to support, i.e., has great freeriding terrain or terrain for big mtn freestyle...not the parkish jump line freestyle besides there is really no park except for a couple mini jumps and a few boxes.
