Thanks for making my choice even harder! Ha

On a serious note thank for that response, will look into each board you mentioned!
you cant demo anymore at snozone in milton keynes? I think the store that lets you demo is The Snowboard Asylum and also there is another one right near that that lets you demo stuff. (its just not in the mall)

Update:

This starts to get confusing when sales people start pushing other boards towards you.

The new boards are:

Lobster Park - Size 153 - Cost 198
Battalion Whatever - Size 154 - Cost 212
Yes Greats - Size 156 - Cost 285
Yes Basic - Size 157 - Cost 216
Never Summer SL - Size 158 - Cost 311

I did try to look into the Flow Drifter, K2 Turbo Dream and Saloman Time Machine, I cannot find these boards anywhere here in the UK

The Bindings are Burton Cartel re:flex - Cost 150

If I was you and im not, I would pick between the two YES boards...having said that I am a huge tbt fan and would buy myself the Lobster (which I already own) It is super soft though and not as all around oriented as the two YES's. If you are going to ride almost exclusively indoors then the Lobster is probably the best bet. I am pretty sure TSA lets you demo them at the indoor slope (i demo'd like 20 boards there when I used to live in england) TBT is a very rider specific tech and many people hate it and many people love it, the YES is a much safer pick if you dont/cant demo.

Well you couldn't find the time machine cause its a 2014.

If not the Basic my next pick would be the Whatever.

Can I ask? Why not the Greats? Too much of a board to handle?

Finally do you think the 157 Basic would be ideal for my weight and style?

Thanks

FYI you're looking WAY too much into this, especially if your only experience is on a Burton LTR board. Anything you ride is going to seem amazing to you after that.

Just get the Basic, and have fun on it.

Not really sure that helps you when you are based in SA.
I ordered my last board online from UK, got it from Snow and Rock. Will check if snowboard asylum does any online selling, otherwise might make a stop in London just before the next trip. Hoping to do another trip to the alps next year. Not sure where yet.

Your in luck because I while I was doing my read each I came across some places that can help.

If you are interested in the YES Greats 156 - YES THE GREATS SNOWBOARD - The Snowboard Shop (they price match and got it down to 285 - they recently sent one to Denmark)

If its the 154 your interested in check out snowboard asylum - 246

Snowboard asylum are the UK distributor so have the best sale prices.

Hope this helps

Thanks for that man, unfortunately I would be looking for the 160W in that board. From some reviews I read it seems to be a pretty impressive board.

Here in South Africa we are so limited, there's literally one shop that caters for boarders, they're mainly focused on park boards and either DC or Burton.
