New here and hope you experts can help. I NEED (current board is destroyed) a new snowboard and I want/need your advice.
A little about me:
Im 5'8, 68 kg's and have been snowboarding a fair while. Ive probably clocked about 300-350 days on the hill over the space of 4 seasons living in resorts and a bunch of holidays in between.
I currently ride a GNU Riders Choice 2007/08 154.5 which Im fairly sure was the first season Magne Traction was released.
I ride all over the hill, including the booters in the park but I do NOT ride rails at all anymore. If its snowed I will search for pow. As such Im not after a Jib board
I ride switch a lot so has to be true twin. I also ride fairly fast when I can so dont want a noodle
Where Im looking for advice is since I last bought a board in early 2008, Im aware that there are LOADS of new manufacturers, all sorts of Cambers, different Base types, varied sidecuts etc etc etc
For me, the greatest thing I have experienced on a snowboard on the pistes is Magne Traction, so Im keen to get something with either that, or a similar extra contact point type invention.
I guess I could play safe and simply get the 2013 Riders Choice but I feel Im ignoring lots of other decent options ......Please help
