Recommendation for new board
I need some advise for a new board for my friend. Here are his info:
Size 10 boots
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Riding for 20 years
Advanced rider all mountain
Here in Quebec conditions are often groomed packed snow, sometime icy (especially this year) and light powder conditions are rare. We do get a lot of snow usually and when we do it is heavy powder.
Mostly enjoy expert runs and love precision in carving and control. Not super fast but still love speed.
So, he is looking for a freeriding board, for advanced to expert level, and the budget is not important.
I bought myself a Ride Highlife UL last year and love it. However, I need to see if there is something new outthere for him.
I’m still getting this year the same recommendations of last year on the manufacturer’s web sites:
Nitro: Panteral or Magnum
Burton: Custom X
Ride: Highlife UL or Farah
K2: Turbo dream
He will also need bindings and boots.
Your recommendations are needed (and feel free to recommend other boards)
