And why do I sense that I'm gonna get abused for asking that question??

3 boards.

1) Jones Mountain Twin - all around fun
2) Jones Carbon Flagship - Freeride / Pow
3) Jones Hover Split - Pow

I'll be picking up a true freestyle board next season if we don't get snow.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

During low coverage periods (late/early season,) you end up riding a lot of not-quite-snow. Having a board you can abuse without giving a shit whether it explodes is extremely helpful, it allows you to pick lines without worrying about bits of non-snow in your path.

usually by the time im done using a board it's beat to shit and wouldnt be worth selling to anyone so i just hold on to it.

i've sold a few that were still in decent condition but half the time im getting a new board it's because i destroyed my old one.

Ha ha...makes sense. I get a pair of new boards each year because I'm very curious...I always think that I will like the next one better or the new tech in the board will be awesome. Neither is true all the time though.

Ice Coast (NH here)...

Neversummer SL 158 - good all around - this is my board when I want to ride bigger mountains (for NH)
splitty - K2 Panoramic 158 - backcountry workhorse good on everything tho I've beat on it a bit
Signal Rocker 156 - super fun for butters/turns but fun all around - cannot wait to ride this in the trees

Technically I own 6 but ride 2, perhaps 3 next season.

1. Main board, all mountain: GNU B Pro (C2BTX)
2. Rock/learn park board: Ride Rapture (LowRize rocker)
3. First board, haven't ridden in ages but might see snow again next season hence the 3rd referenced above: Apocalypse Cap 5 (super stiff camber)

4. A promo Mountain Dew board someone gave me years ago. It's never seen bindings or snow. It's a 155 camber with cap construction.

5. and 6. Some completely thrashed - like someone ran them over with a vehicle thrashed - decks I thought I could repurpose into a snowboard bench. Also "gifted" to me. I think one is a K2 and the other a Ride? Clearly I've not gotten to the bench project yet.

Currently own, and ride:

Birdman in a 180W
Lynn Phoenix in a 157W
Lynn Classic in a 160W
Travis Rice Pro Horsepower in a 164.5

I have next year's Banana Magic pre-ordered ((162W)), and I am planing on picking up the next year's Attack Banana((161W)), after the end of the season........Yeah, I'm a Lib' junkie. Their boards are more big guy friendly, and they charge hard!
