Board suggestions for advanced woman rider
I been on a hiatus from hills for about 7 years- and now I can get my munckins up there and excited to get back into riding more regularly.
I am out of touch with the technology changes the last decade and have been researching all the rocker and hybrid combo style and reviews of more advanced all mountain boards. I am not getting a clear idea of which type of technology and benefits would best meet my riding style and help me advance my technical riding skills more. I want to focus more this next year on my turning initiations and techniques on steeps, mogals and powder riding.
I am an advanced semi-aggressive all mountain (forward rider- lots of carving on both groomed, ungroomed some powder). Aging myself- I need to upgrade from my 150 Rossi Professional (circa late 90's- 2000). Its been alright over the years, a little stiff but good control and stable through chunky conditions. Not into park riding, tricks or much jumps.
Looking for suggestions on a previous year model for more advanced woman riders. I am been reading reviews and wondered about suggestions. Curious about Rome boards or Never Summers and some of the other lines I am not as familiar with from my old school days... I am 5'4 about 135lbs and considering the 155-160 size range. I am looking for the stability for deep carving but also some flex for quick turn initiations and as I mentioned want to push my skills up another notch. Thanks for any suggestions.
