Default help me pick a lib/gnu board???

im 205 lbs and about 5'10"
i want an all mountain board but rarely go to the park
but i do plan on hitting the park soon
im an intermediate

my current board seems slow and seems to slip out on me (wants to go sideways when im carving) i think i may be too heavy for it. its a 156 camber board

time for a new board..... any suggestions????

159 162 TRS

Jamie Lynn 160

Bananana Magic 161

Landvick 160

GNU Riders choice 161.5


Depends how stiff you like your boards but any of these will fit you fine. Pick the one you like the best graphics.

me: 20+ years riding, 90% on a Lib or Gnu.

If you can try demoing as many boards as you can, that way you can try as many of those boards as possible before pulling the trigger.

It's not easy to demo boards in the NE.

A number of mountain do have demo days though, you have to keep an eye on their web sites for announcements.
I caught a couple demo days at Mt Snow, VT for example.
Stowe (also in VT) has a permanent demo / rental center but it's 100% Burton.
