Zolemite I also haven't bought a board since like 02. I ended up getting a 2012 Rossignol Angus 159 which is a hybrid rocker/camber/rocker. I live in the Midwest where there is ice most of the time. After a coupon I bought it from Evo.com for $169 shipped. They make a mid wide version as well.

Njnotorious92 I think im sticking with ride bindings since the flows are ridiculously high priced for decent ones

also i feel like they're one of the only companies that offers weggies 1.5+from $175 and up pluas besides the beta mvmnt bindings theyve never let me down

Gnu's not really canted i feel like it may not be comfortable

anyways...

So as of right now im looking at these boards..

Rome Agent Rocker
Lib Skate Banana
Ride Machette GT
Lib Attack Banana
Gnu Riders Choice


any you guys like dont like or anything you guys heard about certain products?

Thanks,
Garry

Hybrid boards can certainly be used for park and most add in a little middle ground that gives them some overlap into other riding styles that benefit from more contact. Rocker remains the loosest, most playful profile.

Gnu bindings have a solid following. The Weird will be a great choice for you.

Wiredsport You will love the Gnu Pickle 159 Wide. Magnetraction will help with that E Coast hardpack and you will get the full freedom from catchitude that rocker was designed for. Keep your Agent and you will have a solid quiver.

Stoked!

Njnotorious92 Okay well then let's stick to just park

I currently have a 161 Rome agent from 07/08? Which is in great condition and will suffice for groomers I believe!!

That makes things pretty easy.

As you know rails to groomers are pretty far apart in terms of board design. We typically advise a do it all design for riders who want one board to cover park, rails, groomers, carves. If you wanted to focus on a park and rail board that would be a different suggestion. Clarify that for me and we will proceed.

Got it. we want to stay clear of boot size for a moment as it will not factor into your board choice. If you could get an actual foot measurement that will help a lot in choosing a specific board.

That will be an awesome start.

Thanks
