Looking to buy a new all mountain freestyle board... Any recommendation for 12/13 season board?
No more park for me. Probably still do some jumps off the kickers but won't be doing any more park laps. I had enough of injuries... lol
I'm looking for a cruiser. I still like to play around in the mountain. I rather be skating around than charing down the mountain. Also if the board can handle the pow days, it will be a bonus for me - saves me carrying another board.
My main board used to be arbor blacklist 154, and looking for something in 157-158. Hoping to get rid of salomon powder snake 160 as well.
Yes The Greats or Rome Agent Rocker maybe?
I bought the rome myself, and so far im very happy with it.
Lib Tech Skate Banana is always a fun board to cruise with, and it works in pow great in pow aswell, atleast if you go for the wide version.
Arbor Coda does everything you're asking for. Great cruising board, really stable but playful. And really nice in pow due to the softer nose and rocker. I'm using ist for pretty much anything and it has never disappointed me.
I'm 180 lbs and ride the 59. In your case I'd go with the 57. Good compromise between stable and playful. If you want to have it a bit more stable and good for charging you can easily go with the 59 though.
Nivek, is the Villain really comparable to the other boards? I'm very interested in that board because I find the camber profile very appealing but from what I've read it seems to be more on the park side than the Greats or Omni for example. Would you recommend it as an all mountain ride?
I've also heard great things about the Sabotage. How would you compare them?
In flex not really. But I wouldn't hesitate to ride the 53 at 150lbs everywhere every day. Even in the backcountry on sleds to be honest. Took a 55 Assasin up Buff and would rather of had that Villain.
Just upsize one from your park size and you're set.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
