New season, new board?
Hey, I started snowboarding a couple of years ago.
My first year I used my friend's Forum and got like 3 runs before I broke my wrist. That ended my season early.
Last season (06-07) I got my own board, a Burton Bullet and I had a good season. Learned to carve well and I went from taking a long time to go down greens in Quebec slopes to doing blacks in Lake Louise/Banff at the end of my season.
I never tried any jumps or rails or any park terrain, I did mostly groomed runs because my 2 best friends and ride partners are skiers, actually only one of them is a skier, the other one boards too but she doesn't to park, and we just follow the skier around because we have a lot of fun anyway.
Well this season I won't be with them and I will be in Ontario I think for 90+% of the season and I heard Blue Mountain has a good park, well I am interested in learning free style stuff like jumps and grabs, rails, etc....
So I was wondering since I got my basics down is and I want to free style if it was time to get another board? I was thinking of perhaps getting a 06 Custom though I ride a wide board atm (Bullet) although my boots are size 10, I don't know if that is too big for a custom or a non-wide board. Anyway yeah is it worth getting another board which is more flexible and better for free styles than my current ride or should I learn with my Bullet?
PS- I really enjoy going down groomed runs and just riding but there are jumps scattered around some runs and I'd be doing that, those jumps, and park....
Thanks for the help guys
