I don't think that video was a good representation of that riding I do. Usually the hills I take are much more steep, but I think this one gets the idea across. Let me see if I can find something better.

This is the smaller of 2 mountains that are close to each other that I go to every once in s while. Its a better representation of what I tend to do. The camera work isn't nearly as good and the music is weird but its what I could find.

Ok, this is a little better. In the first video I literally saw Green Circle signs at like 0:55 and 3:30. This second video there are some runs that have some pitch to them. Hopefully, you aren't going to be like the rider at 4:08 in the video you posted above .

Anyways... to be honest, if this is the type of slopes your are riding. The Heritage or the T Rice Pro are might be too much board for you (too stiff for the moderate slopes and medium speed to be fun). SL is enough...

FWIW I know I'm intimidating and scary, and that's why it seems I'm so hostile all the time. In fact I am a teddy bear and I was not criticizing that guys riding at all, he was very smooth. Unfortunately all he did was a couple ollies going slow doing non-aggressive carves on a green run. The OP asked what kind of board is good for this. A fucking skateboard with the trucks ripped off, the top of a garbage can, or a fucking Burton Backhill like I said.

Sorry for being so salty.

FUCK!!

We all love ya, but I still disagree this ain't no green run. It's an easy blue atleast. No beginner can tackle that as there first run.

Green, blue, hell black - it does not matter. All of those videos are still groomer cruising. Nothing wrong with that, but unless one is going for super steep/double black and icy groomers any board can handle this type of riding.

+1, I would classify my GF as a groomer cruiser. She has a good time, likes to try carving, but doesn't get crazy speed. Isn't too interested in the park, and is just learning to handle trees and alpine bowls.

She's got a mid-flex camber board and loves it for her riding (yes she's tried the alternatives)...
