Nidecker ultralight Nidecker Snowboards - Ultralight - Ferrari, Rolex, Ultralight
or
Venture storm Storm | Venture Snowboards
or
Ride high life ul wide Ride Snowboards 2012-2013

Thanks.
I didn't read this enough to find out if you've already made your purchase, but get the Venture. While everyone else was double checking that everything was set and ready for SIA, these guys heard Loveland got 8 inches so they drove up and rode. Real people that care about the sport and make one thing, rad ass freeride decks. One of the best brands in the industry.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

If anyone could help me choose a board it would be very helpful
I've been looking around for a board that can go all over the mountain and still be very good in the park and at jibbing. I was thinking the Lib Tech TRS 154 because I've heard its a Allmountain/Park board but I really don't know due to people sayings its not or it is. I would like too get a Gnu or a Lib tech snowboard because they are on sale but I'm open to other suggestions and if it helps Im 183 cm and 75kg and im size 9.5 boot.

Im a intermediate rider that wants to spend a good amount of time jibbing and in the park but still be able to get some good speed.

The Odin is a solid ride. It is a bit of a missle. It took me a little bit longer than most boards to figure it out. Once I did it was great.

It'll be an amazing board on a powder day. The float is unreal.

I am a newer snowboarder and am looking for a board to buy. I am looking for a used board that is good for both park and mountain. I want a board that can jump good, good with jibbing and switches, but also, a board that I can just race down a hill with, carve, and handles on ice.
Thank you very much
Ryan

Ok Sweet for like jumping should I look for anything in particular or will almost anything work for jibbing and simple jump tricks? I looked at a 2008 burton clash before do u think I should look for something a little newer?
