choosing a new board
 
my board was stolen last season and im looking for a new one

ive always ridden camber, but im very interested in banana or rocker tech.

any suggestions?

what type of riding do you do? how much do you weigh? 2 companys to consider would be NeverSummer or LibTech. nearly every company now has some sort of version of reverse camber though so there are plently of options.

1: Decide on what you wanna ride: park, all mountain, big mountain/powder
2: decide on level of desired performance: beginner(low response), intermediate(mid response), advanced(high response)
3: set a budget depending on how advanced of a board and the type of riding
4: find all the boards from all the companies that fit your criteria and pick the one with the coolest topsheet.

It's eerie how much sense this makes. :thumbsup:

you forgot the: ask a bunch of questions about the board on the internet part

im 5' 10'', 150 pounds
i ride all mountain. i used to ride a burton custom x which was pretty stiff and i would like to experiment with something a little softer so i can butter and press. im a strong rider. i do expert terrain and big park features and it just depends on the snow conditions to what i ride. ive only got enough money for one board so it needs to be versatile. hopefully under $600 dollars.

if you want something buttery/fun but still can handle the mtn the NeverSummer evo-r is a very good board. also the NS SL-r is a slightly stiffer version of the evo-r. from lib tech the TRS is a awesome board and is on the stiffer side but with the banana its fairly easy to press still.
