Time for a new snowboard!
 
Alright guys so I'm looking in to getting a new board for the new season. Really just want something playful that I can take in the park and on the hill. The hills I go to are really small and not real big, so a strictly all-mountain board isn't necessary. Plus, I'll have my Burton Custom for any place that I wouldn't be comfortable with.

I guess what I'm trying to do is get a board softer and more fun than my Custom, which at times feels like I'm riding a coffee table :laugh: If you could recommend me a board that does what I want and replaces my custom, that would be cool. Honestly, that's not necessary, though. I've been looking at the Ride Machete, however I read that they're fairly stiff. How stiff they are compared to my Custom, I have no idea.

ANyway, I'm 5'8" and way 185lbs. I snowboard mainly up in Ohio, but like to go to New York every once in a while

Thanks guys!

Arbor Draft or Westmark totally different boards both are fun

Burton Nug or Antler, would be good complementary boards.

+1 on antler

Alright I probably should've mentioned I don't want to spend much on a board haha. If I can get last years model for around 300, that would be perfect. Or new, maybe close to 500.

The reason I like Ride so much is because of their graphics. Their probably my favorite out of any board company I've seen, but I have no idea on the stiffness of them and I don't have the luxury of being able to test out boards.

Thanks guys!

What size boot do you wear?

Two boards I think you'd like are capita's indoor surivial and burton's joystick. You can get both for under $300.

The Machete sucks dick. Like seriously it's gay on gay on gay porn with a side of Grindr mixed in. Don't waste your time.

Yeah cause the Antler is basically a rockered Custom X. Yep, totally complimentary when he's looking for something playful.









Or I missed the sarcasm... oh well.

I have a 2012 Ride Machete the dude sold me on the graphics but after riding it for 2 years im tired of it. The board is to stiff for me and maybe you too. It is a great all mountain freestyle board which is what i thought i was going to be doing it but after gaining more park experience the board is done. So all in all i wouldnt recommend a Ride Machete even thou the graphics are sick. Im looking at getting an Arbor Blacklist(wide westmark) you might like that too or a Arbor Westmark or Arbor Draft

GOOD LUCK :thumbsup:

Yeah cause everyone knows Graphics are the most important thing when selecting a snowboard. Have to look cool and fill the part to snowboard!
