Need help picking a board
 
Hey everyone, I am currently riding a 2009 Burton Bullet 160cm. I am looking for a new board. I am 6'1 160lbs and an intermediate rider. I spend 90% of my time on groomers and powder and the other 10% in the park. I am just starting to learn in the park, so I am not doing anything crazy.

I have been looking into the Ride Machete, K2 Raygun and K2 Life Like.

Does anyone have any opinions on these boards and if so which one would you recommend?

Or are there any other boards you would recommend?

Thank you for all input!

Hey you should check out the Burton Whammy Bar. It's great for all mountain riding, and is a great board to get good on. I have some footage of the board. Check it out son!

Seriously stop. He says 10% park and you recommend the loosest jib board on the market. Stop showing everyone how good you zeach and how you cant finish a rail and leave.

OP: if youre looking for a great board for your current riding style that wont hold you back as you start to get more into park, the Raygun is the way to go. Super fun board thats a joy to ride anywhere.

As nivek said, the Whammy Bar is a retarded recommendation for the OP. Why do keep suggesting it every board thread that you post in?

And what is up with the video? Ignoring personal animosities, your airs are good (better than mine for sure) but your rails need lots of work. Now top spamming every thread with that clip.

The Raygun is one of my top choices along with the Ride DH and the Ride DH2

Just to update. I bought a 2012 Ride Machete 158, it should be here within the next two days. I am amped.
