New season new board
Well the season is almost upon us. I am looking to pick up a new board in near future. I am currently riding a Burton Hero 155 mid-wide with Cartel bindings. I love the board any how playful it is, but it saw a lot of use last year and will now be my early/late season board. I currently live up in the northeast and will spend the better part of my season at Killington in Vermont. I plan to make a Colorado trip or two and may be moving out west next summer. I like my Hero because I can make the mountain my playground. It is great in the park and fun all over the mountain. I like to ride everything from trees to the park. I am looking for a board similar to the Hero in how playful it is that will fit my riding needs. I haven't kept up with boards much and am looking for a little input on which direction to go. I will demo if I can, but would like to hear some input on the selections. I am able to get discounts on certain brands so I would like to stick with them. I know this board loves Never Summer and I would love a new Proto, but lets stick with these brands. I will probably mount those new Flow M9-SE bindings on the board. I am 6' 165lbs size 11 1/2 boots 23" 15, -15 stance.
