Slightly New to snowboarding

Alright, So my names Yannick and I'm freshly subscribed. I have approximately 2 solid years of snowboarding experience. For the past 4 years I have gone rarely more than twice in one year, renting.

Wellll I would like to get back into the sport. I am looking at spending 300-350 dollars canadian on an all mountain freeride board. I am 145 lbs, and 5'9 and quite aggresive in powder, moguls, jumps etc.

Thanks ^.^

Makes sense, as far as board choice, I am ride preferential so I like any of the Ride boards. Specifically the DH, but also look at the Fleetwood and Control, both within your price range and both very good boards.

Yes, I was looking at ride snowboards and such. Possibly a K2.

I dont think im "lazy" towards finding my own preference. Im more anxious to just go out and board. I remember trying out a ride ages ago and really liked the flow.

Thanks for the suggestions.
