Help choosing a board
Hey, I'm sure a lot of these threads pop up, but I would appreciate some help.
I've been snowboarding for 10 years, and teaching for 7. So I should have an idea of what I want, right? NOT. I feel like I've been so out of the loop, that I have no idea what I'm looking at anymore.
Here's the low down. I'm a 25 year old chick, 5'5" and 125 lbs. I've never really been a park shredder. I've always been sucked into the trees, steeps, bumps, and nature of the mountain. I recently quit my job teaching (drama within our state run mountain, not worth it to me $$ anymore), so this opens up opportunities to shred Vermont more and get out of NY. I'll be riding with new peeps, and I want to get into jibbing and playing around a bit more, all while keeping my love for the trees. So I'm thinking I'm going to go a bit shorter, and maybe go with a 152 (I ride a 155 now) and something more flexy. I'm not looking to buy a brand new '09 board, so seasons before will suit just fine. Help yo! =)
