poutanen Yeah, do yourself a favour and upgrade the bindings at the same time. I really like Burton bindings, but the freestyles are the entry level. Even the brand new ones still have toe straps instead of caps. I've been riding for a long time and I'd never go back to the strap!

Even on a budget I'd go for the Burton Customs or Cobrasharks or Restricted Custom...

Nukka Pretty much settled on getting a 2012 SL for ~400 (1$170 off from retailer price). Just going ask if there are any last words before I pull the trigger on this thing.

I do the same type of riding- Freeriding- IMO best kind of riding, the faster,the more powder, bigger jumps the better
I still stick by this leaning towards the K2 for you...even though I bought the Burton for freeriding

JHeagz YES. SNOWBOARDS Pick Your Line

Just got mine yesterday...nice fat nose/tapered tail for float in pow, but camber between the bindings so it can cruise down groomers alright too. I'll be up in Whistler end of Dec, hopefully you save some of that white stuff for me.

One thing I did not account for is the newer NS boards that have the blunted tip/tail allow for a longer effective edge than the overall board size would normally indicate. Simply put, they ride bigger than their size. Although I only went up 2cm, it "feels" like a bigger change. I do not think this is really anything to get hung-up on, just make sure you are looking at apples to apples when evaluating sizes.
Seeing as how you've ridden an SL before, how would you rate it in terms of a freeride board? Given my size I think a 153 should fare pretty well as I haven't really gotten into back-country snowboarding yet and shouldn't be in and more than a 2 feet or so of powder
