My 2000 Burton Custom is getting very long in the tooth. I will be buying a new board at the end of this season.
6'4" 190# (of twisted steel and sex appeal
All mountain / freeride
When in VT with my wife (a very good skier) we hit blues, blacks and double blacks.
We also do tree riding and moguls. I get some strange looks being a boarder in the bumps, but man is it fun when done right.
I occasionally venture into the park, but just do the small to medium features. I also like to do spins and ride fakie.
Like I said, I currently ride a Burton Custom 164. It has handled anything I have wanted to do. I have ridden Burton since my 1984 Performer, so "we" have some history.
Is there a reason why I should not get another? And if I do, should I get the 162 or the 166?
Please don't populate this thread with hate, I'm just looking for an all mountain board that is comparable to what I am currently riding. Not knowing anything about what's out there, I am looking for suggestions (with a reason other than "It's the shizz". Remember, I'm old.
Thanks in advance.
