Thanks guys!
I'm looking for a new board for Bear Mountain. Not a hill but not a large mountain either. Fuck graphics. Seriously. Don't buy a board based on it. You might end up with something close to what you already have and waste your money.

Soft boards I'm looking real close at are K2 WWW, Rome Artifact Rocker, Rossignol Rocknrolla. Waiting on reviews of the Rocknrolla

but you can get the WWW and Artifact Rocker for real cheap. the problem? They're really soft and you're heavier than me so grab a heavier board. I think they're about $200.

I thought I saw the Arbor Westmark for real cheap as well. I'm 145 and rode a 150, handled Stevens Pass fine (didn't hit their double blacks as it was sketchy at the time).

Maybe a 156 for $240 Arbor Westmark Snowboard - 2012/2013 - Free Shipping at REI.com

Should be a very different ride than your cambered Custom. Very loose in a fun way (grip is mostly fine).

Or maybe it's because I value art and I would like a nice looking board if I'm going to be spending the money on it. I also don't need you being so offensive. You aren't helping out me out in anyway, so please stop contributing

To answer someone's question, I believe I have a 10.5 boot. Might even be 10. Thanks for all of the recommendations! Seems that you guys really like Arbor boards.

I would like to avoid Burton boards that utilize The EST binding system because there's a good chance I won't be getting Burton bindings.

Keep em coming!

I hear really good things about the salmon villain and want to try it this year. I ride a blacklist and loved it from the first time I rode it.

As for BA being “offensive” this is not him being offensive you will know when he is “BEING OFFENSIVE”

if you get a board that doesn't have steezy enough gfx all you need is some Tech9 gear and marijuana stickers.

If you want me to be offensive I can be offensive. Stop crying and pull the sand out of your vagina you twat waffle. You asked about the Machete I gave you the honest answer it sucks dick, just like you. So if you want to slurp away on that mansicle go for it.

You do not need Burton bindings for EST boards. Pretty much all binding companies supply mounting disks that work with the EST system.

Alright I'll bump this. Been doing a lot of research and have come up with...nothing haha. Been looking at the Ride Buckwild and Bataleon Evil Twin. It kind of sounds like these would be what I'm looking for, but I'm worried I'm going to end up with a board that isn't any looser than my Custom. Ride's twin rocker shape looks like something that might be what I should be looking for in a board.

One general question though, is it safe to assume a park board with some type of rocker-flat-rocker profile will be generally more playful and looser than a wide, normal camber board?

Also, sorry for unloading all of this on here. All this technology is still relatively new to me. I haven't bought a board since 2007, before any of these new profiles were available (or maybe I just wasn't aware of them).

Thanks for all of the help so far guys
