I need some suggestions on a new board. I have been snowboarding for about 8 years now, and I think it's time for me to upgrade my equipment. I currently have a Burton Troop 151 (probably from 1999 or 2000) with Salomon boots and bindings. I spend a lot of time freeriding because I am with beginners a lot, but I like to go to the park whenever I can too. I have always been happy with my board but I think it's time to upgrade, but I'm not sure what an upgrade from a Troop would be. Please give me any suggestions you have.
Yeah, I know I think I have too many options. I was thinking about the Rome Vinyl, or maybe a Burton GTwin. I guess I don't really have a price range, prolly not gonna spend more than $500 though. My plan is to buy from last season anyway if I can.
Well that's what I'm trying to decide. Even if I'm spending half my time in the park and half my time freeriding, would you suggest I get an all mountain board? That's what I'm assuming, so I'm leaning more towards the Vinyl.
