Default Selecting a new board. Would love some advice.

Hey,

So I am an intermediate rider. I am pretty comfortable riding all around the mountain. Looking for a board for free riding, doing jumps, ramps, and tree runs, on and off trails, hitting features, really just having a good time with snow. I do a little terrain park but still quite nervous about rails.

I currently ride an old ride board(from 2008 or 2009) with the new forum republic bindings 2012 (bought em last season) and Burton Hail Boots(2011).

I am 5 7" around 175lbs, 9.5 boots, I'm from NY so I only go about 8-12 times a seasons(looking to go more).

I've been looking into hybrid boards for all mountain freestyle. Leaning towards the 2012 Machete(around my price range $250-350 and seems to be what I'm looking for) right now but would like to look into other boards. Was wondering if you had any advice/suggestions? Thanks.

Check out the attack banana from lib tech or the t.rice pro. I just bought the trice pro hp 153 and I'm the exact same stats and riding style as you. 5'7" 180 pounds 9.5 boot
