Suggestions for a new board
I was looking for some ideas on what snowboards are recommended for me. I am probably considered a beginner almost intermediate and I currently own a 2nd hand 149 burton feelgood which I find is a bit unforgiving on the slopes for someone like me.
So I am looking for a shorter board which has a softer forgiving flex and good for riding in our Australian snow conditions (not much deep powder and sometimes snow is quite firm).
I'd prefer an all mountain board where I can eventually use at parks as well in the future since I already have a feelgood. But for now I will only be using the board to cruise around down the groomed slopes until I become more confident with my skills.
I am 172cm (5' 7"), 53kg(120lbs), boot size US 8 and am fine with any stance.
I've had my eyes on the 149 Rome Vinyl, 146 Burton Troop, 147 Ride Rapture or 145 Gnu B-nice.
What do you think of those boards and any other recommendations suitable for me?
Thanks in advanced for the help
