What is "footed camber" - never heard that term.

And yes, at 6'2" and 150 lbs, I recommend adding fries, rings, and a milkshake to that cheeseburger!

2 boards might happen somewhere down the line but for this summer/ next season I'm going to have to start with 1. I think I'll be able to get away with sharper edges since I've been skiing park for the last 2 years and will have to hit mellower features to begin with. Thanks for the suggestions. At this point I'm leaning towards the salomon villain, but more input would be great.

I will have to look into investing in a solid cheeseburger.

What's your budget? If you can swing $300 total you can grab something like a K2 Raygun for around $200 and you should have no problem finding a used older model jib specific board around $100 on Craigslist or eBay.

X2 on the raygun. Thats what i ride,I keep thinking I want a new board just for park....
But then I get off the lift and remember how much i like this thing.
great all mountain,I havent hit rails on it....but lots and lots of boxes,does great Boardsliding Boxes + Funny Fail - YouTube.
(boardslides,nose/tail slides/presses okay,nothing spectacular though)
i have talked to a lot of people on the mountain who agreee with me,this is a fun all mountain board,that isnt afraid of the park.

Footed camber has cambered sections underneath your feet with rocker on the tips and center of the board...Thats what I call it atleast. Check out the Travis Rice Pro. It has "footed camber"... <---camber - rocker - camber--->

I picked up a salomon villain. What bindings would be good for probably 60% park and 40% all mountain? I've been looking at cartels, union forces, and union contact pros.

Salomon Holograms or Districts. That's what I rode them on, I ride Holograms. GREAT bindings.

From your list if '13 The Cartels or if you like soft bindings the Contact Pro's. I will reserve suggestions regarding the Force '14 till I ride them. I actually have high hopes. I just don't want to be let down and cry.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I'm leaning towards the holograms. Do you think they will be too soft for some faster all mountain/ freeride while still spending a lot of time in the park?

I love my 2013 cartels. I put a lot of days on them this past season and they've held up really well. They are a great(est?) All around binder. The straps seem to have stretched out though. Consider that if you buy some and are on the m / L bubble.

I love the holograms they are not really that soft when you go edge to edge only when you go tip to tail. I rode them on my blacklist all last season and never wanted to take them off.
