Looking for a new board
Hello everyone! This is my first post on the forums and I'm sure its one that you all see a lot of. I'm looking to get a new board. I've been snowboarding for 2 seasons now. I'm an avid surfer and wakeboarder, but being from Florida, I don't see snow too often lol. In the past 2 seasons I've been boarding several times to NC (Beech and Sugar) and also Snowshoe in WV. Surfing since I was a youngster, I naturally picked up snowboarding pretty quick. I bought a Burton 156 Air after the first time I went. It has treated me very good over the past few seasons but I'm ready to do some serious freestyle and park riding. I'm heading to Breckenridge with my girl over Christmas and really looking forward to experiencing west coast boarding. With all this said, I'm looking for a new board, that can help me progress in park and serious freestyle stuff. I consider myself pretty decent. I can link turns easily on east coast blacks, and the only time I ever fall is when I'm doing a jump or something stupid.
I'm 5'7, and 145 or 150 with gear on. My Burton Air feels too long and too stiff. I'm looking for a something shorter and with more flex for more serious park/pipe/freestyle stuff. What are some good boards to fit the style I'm going for, and what size should I be riding?
Thanks in advance for all of your advice and opinions.
