never summer or gnu?

hey. im a new rider, been a few times, definately addicted. i am looking to buy my own board possibly. im looking for something with mtx since im on the east/ice coast. i want something that i can progress on. im looking at a gnu b-nice or a neversummer infinity. which do you think would be better? im worried about the rocker on the infinity being for more advanced riders. opinions would be appreciated! thanks

If your on ice you want the BTX reverse camber! Less chance off catching a edge! At first the control will feel a lil sloppy but you will get use to it and love. Most people do once they try it

i have heard nothing but good things with the vario grip and rc tech on neversummer boards. also, i have a trs btx and also on the ice coast and its pretty sick. imo they're both pretty feasible options and i'll tell you right now people will tell you mixed answers because apparently you either like ns or mervin (lib tech, gnu, roxy) and not both lol. they're both pretty high end boards and with the reverse camber, might be frustrating to get used to if you're just starting out.

the b-nice has regular camber, so i initially thought it would be a better choice, but have heard that boards with reverse camber are sometimes easier for new riders. so im just torn between regular and reverse camber at this point i guess, i want something that i can use for a while though

well i dont think learning on an RC board is easier but i guess its better to learn on one if you're going to get one. the reason why snowboards are coming out with RC now is because previously they were built like skiis (normal camber). skiis and snowboards are totally different so someone came up with reverse camber (mervin i think? someone correct me if im wrong) which is better fitted for snowboards, especially in pow.

im on ice, so i guess it doesnt matter that much, i think im gonna go with the gnu, i found a good deal on it and i think the mtx is most important. thanks for your help!

NeverSummer's rocker is not the same as BTX.
