So I must admit I made the mistake and waited till I was 33 to start this wonderful sport. I have been up 8 times to Keystone and A-Basin so far and went from taking 3 hours to go down Schoolmarm my first time out to trying every single blue I can get my board on. I feel very comfortable riding right now and only fall when I start to try jumps and hard carves through trees.
This brings me to my question.. I am currently running a 2011 K2 WWW with K2 Company bindings riding goofy at +15/-9. I am 170lbs with a 8 1/2 sized boot. I bought this board really based on it's looks and have come to find out that it just does not have the responsiveness I want on groomers. This seems like more of a park board than anything, I don't have much control in tight spaces and I would like a board that really bites in and responds at the drop of a dime. To those of you that have been riding for a while and have had a chance to try out the 12 and 13's what would you suggest for mostly groomers and going off into some trees? I have been looking at the Lib Tech Hot Knife and the Gnu Billy Goat.
