Sorry to beat the dead horse, what's the best all mountain/freeride board?
I'm an amateur/intermediate rider. I've had about one season of riding but went a lot! I'm 5"10-11 and weight about 190lbs. I will be riding to develop my skills to become better than I am, so I want a board that will help me be practical to learn and develop skill but is still able to use as an advance boarder later in the future. I ride the mountain and that's basically it. I will do some park but that is the last of my concerns. I wear a size 11 boot and I will be rocking the Ride SPi with DC Judge Boots.
In a thread I made earlier, Snowolf told me that with my size boot, I don't necessarily have to go with a wide board. Another rider at a shop I talked to said that I want about half of an inch of my heel and toe to be off the board. Is this true?
To the final question, what board should I get? I'm willing to spend up to $700. What's the best all mountain/freeride board that I can get?
I've looked at:
Atomic Cold smoke
Never Summer SL-R/Legacy-R
Never Summer Titan
This is just few but many boards out there in the market. Any recommendations and opinions and etc?
