What fast 09 freeride board do you reccomend?
Yo. I'm an advancing intermediate snowboarding in Nagano, Japan. I'm 6 feet tall and about 170 pounds. I'm currently riding an 08 Rossignol S9 premier 159cm with a pair of 09 Burton Mission bindings.
I'm looking for a board which does better in the powder and the steeps and can go very fast overall. I never ride rails or boxes. I do like to do jumps sometimes, both jumps in the park and natural ones. But I don't want a board that will handle terribly on anything but powder and steeps...
I want to buy a board now, out of season, while they are cheaper.
I'm currently looking at either an Arbor A-Frame 162 or a Never Summer Heritage 162. The Never Summer Titan looks like an awesome board, but the 164 seems a little too big to handle and a 160 seems too small for powder... what do you think?
Recommendations from people who know more than me please.
Also, what is a good pair of free-ride bindings?
