K2 Brigade

Hey,
I'm in Alaska for one year and i'm looking for a snowboard. I guess i need an all mountain board.
I can spend 200-300 dollars.
I found the K2 Brigade but couldnt really find out anything about it.
What would you recommend? Any good snowboards for my purposes?
Thanks!

If you're planning on hitting slopes that are known for pow and or backcountry I suggest a directional board built for powder in mind. Never been to AK but from what I hear it's a crap load of pow or is that just the backcountry only?

You couldn't find this?

K2 Snowboarding | Boards | Brigade

I can't give any personal opinion on that board, but in my experience, most boards in the same price range are comparable. If you found that board for your price range, you probably found a good deal. I think it suits you if you like all mountain boarding. Just make sure you get the right size.

I'm 6'3 and ~175 and I spent a couple seasons on crud on a 154 Anthem. I think a 159 would work fine for you. Depends on the kind of boarding you do, too. I have a Design 165, but it is really light so I don't have problems riding on crud.
