What were you riding and did you like it? Nice to know what you are coming out of to talk about what you might like to get into. Got a budget? Sky the limit? Based on your handle, ice coast riding?

i was riding a 2013 GNU Pickle. I liked it but it was my first board. Last year i rented. I want to try different boards and get a feel for other profiles. My budget is around $500. i get 20% off at my home mountain. i am an intermediate to low advanced rider. I have a lot of time on the mountain. Yes i ride on the east coast.

If you're coming from true rocker I'd recommend a rocker/camber hybrid. Sounds like you're looking for something along the lines of...wait for it...Never summer. Check out the Evo or the Proto. Rocker between the feet, cambered tips for added control and pop. Both true twin, pressy, and kill the park. Also look at the Burton flying V or the Nitro Gullwing profiles. Pretty much the same thing.

Or if he wants to stick to Lib/GNU, anything with C2/C3 BTX. Maybe like a hot knife or emma P. Or GNU Metal Guru or Forest Bailey
