Torn between some boards
Need to buy before ride because demoing is not on my financial menu
All 2013 boards
Burton Custom Flying V (Pref.) Ride Buckwild, Skate Banana, Mod Rocker
Or any other rides around $300-$350, need to get last years
The LibTech and Rome are much different from the Burton and Ride
Definitely don't want to be some hyped up fan buying the mainstream
Although, I have 3 Loaded Long boards and their boards shred, hehe...
Buying boots/bindings at the local store
Ordering the board from Evo
Definitely wanted to feel the boots in a binding, in person
At Hunter, I rented a Burton maybe?
I have a video of it but not sure what board
Didn't believe it was the most killer board, so...
Kinda of need a do it all board, top to bottom.
In the NE, so the powder is low.
Hitting small jumps, boxes and rails, not major
Really like buttering, popping ollies off natural bumps
Want to bomb hills and be able to surf around.
Always on the hunt to find natural snow waves to surf and hack on.
For me, the more Diamonds the better.
Thought the Custom Flying V had it all
Came down to the medium flex over the Buckwild
The Rome and Libtec just seemed that they would squirrel at high speeds
But probably be forgiving and killer in hacking and slashing away at things
Not sure where I was going with this post but thought I'd ask for opinions on the boards and which one might suit my style better.
There's a part of me that says,
any snowboard will do the job, its all about the rider.
Just wanted to get the ride right, out of the box
Let me know what you think?
Gnu Riders Choice. Better in crappy conditions than the Custom FV. Personally I think very few of Burtons all mountain boards are great when not in ideal snow conditions. Grip on the 2013 FV is supposed to be shitty. The Riders Choice has a similar profile and is solid (though not spectacular) in park and modest pow, while shining as a do it all freestyle all mountain deck. If you go on the longer side it will pretty much never let you down when plowing through crud or bombing groomers.
For a one board quiver in the east I recommend camber to deal with the ice.
Consider burton custom camber.
Also burtom has roaming demo tents, free to try stuff.
Thanks, super appreciate the advice. Sorry, little late on responding. I was gonna post another thread to see if I could hone down a board. Just picked up a pair of Forum Kickers, they are super sneakery, epically comfortable.
The guys at the store recommended the K2 WWW 2013
Was thinking of getting it my size instead of sizing down
Thought this will translate to more stability on bombing
I'm all about the US made boards and leaning towards a 2013 Evo
I like the idea of a quiver killer, haha
Thinking the All Mountain board is not my thing but if I were to get a board for bombing it would have to be a Slay Blade
Wow, after felling your shop guy what you want out of the board he recommndd the Weapon? Does anyone hire shop kids that aren't jackasses anymore? The Weapon is a jibstick. A versatile one mind you, but not even close to what you're looking for.
The Evo is meh. Decent board but its overpriced. Look instead for a Flow Era if you want that rocker profile and a mid flex park deck. Instead of a Custom FV go a tad softer and camber and loook at a Process.
I am a newer snowboarder and am looking for a board to buy. I am looking for a used board that is good for both park and mountain. I want a board that can jump good, good with jibbing and switches, but also, a board that I can just race down a hill with, carve, and handles on ice. What board do u think would be best? Also I looked at a 2008 burton clash is that good or should I look for somethin a little newer? I have also looked at button customs
Thank you very much
