Default Need help finding new board!

I've been riding for about 5 years now and last season I really got into riding park. I'm riding a Nitro board right now, but I'm looking to get a new board this summer with all the sales going on. I'm about 5'10 135-140lbs size 10 boots. Im really looking into a board that is a great park board, but also can be taken around the mtn (if they exist). I would say I ride 70%mtn/30%park. I've looked into the 152 stairmaster, but i wasn't sure if that was straight park. Also 152 K2 Anagram but i haven't hear much about K2 so im kinda of iffy about that brand. Any input about Rome, Academy, or any other brands would be helpful. Any ideas or suggestions would be very very appreciated. Thanks guys!

Well actually most snowboards are geared toward you riding style. All-mountain freestyle is the most popular category of boards right now. I saw that you were interested in Rome. The board from them that would best suit you would be the Agent. Other great boards that you will love is the Gnu Riders Choice, Lib Tech TRS, CAPiTA Photo Fetish, Option Mirror, and the Burton Custom. The Stairmaster is a great board (I own one) and yes it can ride the mountain decently, but i think the Photo Fetish would be a better board for you from CAPiTA.

Yea I've looked into the photo fetish, but I didn't hear to much about it at all so I was still kind of iffy on getting it. That's about when I put my interest on the stairmaster. I'll definately look into those two boards more. Thanks for the advice!

The Photo Fetish is still a twin but it has a sintered base and an upgraded core, among other things. It still jibs pretty good but it definitely is way more fun off the booters and on the corduroy.

Would you recommend the photo fetish over the stairmaster? Also I was thinking about going for a little shorter board than my 155. I was looking at like maybe around a 148-152 or is that to short?

The photofetish is a twin directional meaning twin shape with a set back. Its an ok all mountain freestyle board but there's better out there, it didn't wow me it rode like a lot of other companies boards.

Don't go smaller than a 152.

K2 Darkstar, K2 podium if you want something stiffer, k2 jibpan for a true twin fun stick, never summer evo and SL, nitro eero, nitro wiig, nitro team, the list of possibilities is endless.

Maybe also something like the lib tech TRS. Although I havent rode one in a few years, it doesnt ever seem to get any bad reviews.
