VinXXX I would explore ski manufacturer's products. Head, Elan, Volkl, Salomon, K2, ever heard of F2 and Nidecker? If F2 made anything wider i'd be all over their freeride boards. Ride also make awesome freeride boards, I have a Yukon 172 and it's a great all around board. Sounds like you're dead set on Burton, I hated that Supermodel and Cartels after 3 days. I can't say enough good things about my El Grande 171 tho... Check out the Elan Vertigo. You may like it...

If you have any demo days around your local mountain, go check them out. Personally if I was in your shoes, I'd go for a T6 (159 or 162) or a Supermodel (159 or 163). I'm a burton lover and can't say much for the other boards because once I went to burton, I haven't gone back.
Really? The custom was beastly for free-riding for me. Love the customs.

It's harder to do moguls on a board but where won't they allow snowboarders on moguls or are you talking about the olympic type mogul runs with the jumps? yea skiers don't really like snowboarders on moguls because we tend to give the moguls "haircuts".

runandgun18 wow this thread is still going? ok so I settled on the Never Summer Premier F1 161 and all I can say is wow. This board handles extremely well and floats in the powder. This board allows me to ride way more aggressive than I used to just because of how well it handles. I've been in powder, on hardpack, on ice, gone through glades and have done moguls on this board. In short, if you want a freeride board, get this. SB4L, as far as moguls, I was forced to do them because my friends are skiers and really enjoy moguls. What I learned is to first of all pick short lines; you don't need to bomb the entire run. Secondly, look for loose snow or hardpack. DON'T GO ON ICE! ICE=BRUISED RIBS AND SHOULDER BLADES! Lastly, be aggressive; If you attack them,you will get through them and they will be fun and as long as you aren't on ice or really old hardpack, if you fall it won't hurt. Hope this helps.

SB4L Picked up a Ride DH2 DFC - this thing rips everything.

So fun in powder, very stable on high-speed groomers, and the pop... Well let me just say that the "pop-stix" technology they put in these things WORKS. I can easily pop 2-3ft higher than most people I ride with... of absolutely anything. Super-responsive, durable so far (the slimewalls really do help), fun to jib with. The best thing about the pop-stix is that you have flex where you need it, but it doesn't make the board overly flexy. This board is a great bargain considering the high amount of tech in the sub$500 range.
