What all-mountain board?

Hey all,

What all-mountain freestyle board would you recommend? I already have a NS Raptor 159 in my quiver for the powder days & big mountain riding. I'm looking for something to just mess around with in the park & on groomers for those not-so-good days.

I'm 6'1" and weigh roughly 200lbs.

I don't have any qualms with buying another NS board if that would be my best option, but I am definitely interested in checking out some other board brands.

Cheers in advance!

There are LOTS of great all-mountainboards out there. I think that some of the best value for money boards right now are:
YES The Basic
Capita Defenders of Awesome
Gnu Carbon Credit
K2 Happy Hour

These are all just my opinion, and if you decide to stick with with Never Summer, I have a buddy that loves his heritage as an all-mountain board.

I would imagine that anything in the 158-161 range would feel good after your raptor 159.

Good luck! I'm sure that you'll end up with something rad!
