Big Feet - Looking for Advanced Snowboard
Looking for some advice about looking at a possible new board. I am now two seasons in and enjoying the sport. I am 6'6" and just under 300 lbs with a size 16/17 shoe so not your small guy. I've been using a Nitro Magnum board for the last two seasons and so far so good.
The advice I am looking for is should I be looking for a different board? I am wondering if my board is a little stiff and not as workable as I would like it to be now that I am better snowboarder. When I am really trying to maneuver down a technical slope it is a ton of work to get my board to react.
In regards to my ride style I now have progressed to Blacks and even some double blacks. Went up to Whistler this season and did some semi-back country type stuff and loved it. For the most part I stick to the trails and when available I love getting off trail and into the POW. I really don't do the terrain park, but have played with some buttering tricks. Also I am not a speed demon. I enjoy more working the slope.
Not sure what another board would be like since I have not tried one and I know that there are few options in my size, but it would be great to get any input if you think it is something worth exploring.
