Finally pulled the trigger on a new board, and everything else. I went with a '12 ride highlife, '12 burton driver x boots size 11, and '13 cartels. I think that should stiffen things up for some great response at speed.
And thanks for the skitracks app basti. I got up to 55mph on the last trip last winter.

Hmm, this is actually somewhat challenging. Flat is your best bet for the camber profile in my opinion.
If you can wait the Signal OG comes in Flat for 2013, its under $500 and great for what you want and you'll be able to keep it smaller cause its super stable, try the 155w. I weigh almost what you do and I ride the 151 everywhere.
If you don't wanna wait, look at maybe the K2 Slayblade, Lifelike, or Protohype, Ride Berzerker, or Nitro Blacklight.

looking for an upgrade
I currently have an 08 ride fleetwood 161. the board fits my riding style but its the only board i've ever had so I want to experience something better. I guess I mostly go for speed. I'm trying to clock myself at 50mph (need something to track it). I also like to go off trail and find some untouched powder. then every so often I'll touch the park. mostly only jumps, no spinning, I just like catching air. Working on landing the big ass jumps. there are so many options for boards I'm not sure what to get. I need to stick with a wide board. I'm fairly light so I could go with a shorter board but I dont want to give up speed, although turning easier sounds nice. looks like I want a camber because they sound the most stable at speed. but then i see variants of the camber (camber, rocker, camber) and i figure i need more experienced advice.
25 years old
like to keep it under $500
I ride in the sierras, lake tahoe.
I figure i might as well lump in boots an binding here as well if thats ok. I have burton missions from 08 that I want to replace for only one reason. I strip out the ladders on them every year. ive used them twice this year and i already have chunks missing. i like my bindings crazy tight. so if you guys know of a good binding that fits my riding habits that has a better ratcheting system, that would be great.
boots are 08 salomon dialogues. I like these boots a lot. I wouldnt mind looking into another lacing system. mostly wondering if they actually fit my riding style since I don't seem to know any better.
hope I gave all the info you guys need to help me out. sorry I dont have a starting point with options I've already picked through. Thanks for the help guys. and if anyone likes going to northstar I'm always trying to keep a full car when I go. usually have one seat open.
