What boards are good for this riding style?

This is pretty much what I do: Snowboarding Lake Louise - Gondola Lap - YouTube

Just add a jump every now and then. What would be some good boards for that style? I'm looking to upgrade my setup. I'm pretty dead set on the Burton Ions boots and Cartel bindings. I've been looking at the Capita BSOD, Burton Custom and Arbor A-Frame. Will these boards suit me well? Do you have any better recommendations?

It looks like he is not doing any kind of riding. Green run low-intermediate carving with small ollies? Any board will do this, even a Burton Backhill with modded waterski bindings.

Any =)

I think freestyle board will be goo. A-frame is freeride board, it's directional and stiff.
But it depends on what you want more: jumps or nice carves. If you want the second - topic gets interesting =)

I'd choose BX board, but that's another topic =))

I go to Le Massif every once in a while. Its has the highest vertical in all of Eastern Canada but I just ride on the groomers. So pretty much, what is a good board for groomers that is stable at high speeds, can carve, isn't too difficult to turn and can do basic tricks and jumps? I'm just trying to upgrade from my low-end Burton setup. I like burton's gear but I don't like my TWC standard. It find that it can't hold an edge, it just slides down everything.

You seriously call a Bataleon Riot similar to your Burton TWC or the Burton Custom!?

Those 2 boards look pretty sweet. I'll be reading up on them. If I like them it will work out great because there is a shop here that carries NS stuff. But nobody carries Capita.

Thats not exactly a green run cmon now. This is basically the average rider with a bit more flare. The kid in this video looks like he knows what hes doing a little bit. Anyways you aint gotta be so hostile. Brah
