Default 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!

i vote for the 150 nug or slightly better 152 burton root ((in case you didn't know you need to size down 10 cm from your reg size).

they are seriously so much fun!
