I need help picking a new board!!!! Dudes!

My height is 182cm, weight is 11.78 stone

This is my 3rd season, and my 3rd time riding, I only ride Piste, I've ridden one blue in California but I slid down a black in Michigan so I consider myself advanced or maybe a little better.

I need the board for 50% All mountain Powder, 12.3%park, 72% moguls, 1%buttering.

Also consider what binders would look the best on the board.

Here's the 2 boards I'm considering, I wake board if that's any help.



Or



Thanks Bros!

So, who dared you to put up this ridiculous post?


And what did you win for wasting our time?

I'm confused....one is a child board and one is a $3000 board? Are you trolling?

Yeah Lstarrasl I think it'd be sweet switch, and really good in the pipe and on rails for that matter too! Probably no good in powder though...

Actually now that Virus is using Zylon in their boards (stronger than kevlar so I hear) this one might be the board for you:

Behold... THE BLACK DEATH!

I've heard about Virus, they make good jib boards.
How much should I de-tune this board once I get it?

Take the 'ole angle grinder to it on a 45 degree angle, 47 degrees if the rails are waxed, and give her a go!
