Given that budget I'd get the Roxy XOXO PTX for sure. Gnu Ladies Choice would be a close 2nd. NS Infinity and Arbor Swoon are worth a look too.

However I agree with what you're saying about board graphics. Much prefer the topsheet on ones like the Roxy Banana Smoothie, Gnu Ladies Pickle, and Arbor Swoon/Poparazzi. Stuff like the XOXO and Velvet Guru are so damn ugly.

Never think you don't 'need' or 'deserve' something because you're not good enough. Fuck that shit.

If you like it, ride it.

^OP there are alot of b-pros at baker....perhaps the dominate model ridden by accomplished or aspiring to progress. Get a performance machine, it might kick your ass for abit, but it will force you to become a better rider and it will be funner.

Thanks everyone! This was seriously helpful and so encouraging.

I read up more on the 2012 diva and it seems to be the best value for the $$$. It's definitely what I need - stiffer with c2 btx and magnatraction. I might get new boots too from the budget leftover.

Doing happy dance now. Thank you so much!!!
