Recommend Me a Snowboard

155 Pounds, 5''10', size 11.5 - 12 boot.
Very Good at riding Groomers (carving), and overall advanced snowboarder.
I spend about 10 percent of my time in the park, nothing too huge.
A little bit of jumping and jibbing.
Ride the worst snow and ice possible for 9/10 of the season. Ontario (East coast)
Have one week out west every year where i ride powder as much as i can

Last year i had a ride antic and loved it because it felt so good carving. Way better than the custom v rocker i used to have.

I basically need a board thats good on carving on hardpack, handling chop, Little bit of park and Hopefully some deep pow for one week.

I am going to the toronto ski swap next week as well as checking out sporting life and kijiji. Also, i would like to keep the prices on the budget side

If your on a budget, theres a bond sale going on in November 8-12 at the International Center on Airport Rd, Toronto in Hall 4A. I plan on going there to get my gear and safety equipment this year as most of this smaple stuff will be up to 70% off! Helll yesss! It will have most brands as well...

If you need more info, you can find the sale under:

Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums > Regional Forums > Regional Forums: Canada > Eastern Canada
And its under Another sample sale

Hope this helps!!!

EDIT: I bought my board, boots and bindings online this year at Wiredsport. Total for everything after taxes and customs was $370, only paid $15 in duties and the package took 1.5 weeks to get to Barrie. Maybe if Wired or Snow sees this thread they can help you out

Budget side? Yeah no.

Flow Drifter. Dialed sidecuts that grip well and enough tech to warrant a $500 full retail deck. If you find last years you should be able to snag one for like $260. Look for the 156.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
