Good Setup?

Hokay guys. I'm talking to you from southern Connecticut. We are currently in the process of getting a few feet in the next few weeks if all goes right! To "celebrate" the late arrival of snow I want to get a new board.

I was looking at a few boards by Flow, Ride, and Burton, but overall I think I'm going to replace my Palmer P-Line (great board) with.

I am 15 with a size 9 boot and will probably grow out to a 10 in a year or two. I weigh 128 pounds, and I'm 5 foot 8 and growing. The snow surface we have here is usually machine groomed, and Icy enough to make experienced riders eat $HIT. But there is the occasional nor' easter producing mass quantities of powder across southern new england.

The board...
2008 Burton ( almost local company actually) Jussi Oksanen 154
here's a pic and a review





Evoke the stoke!
Jussi Oksanen, the pride of Finland, has elevated freestyle to an art form. He always stomps, always smiles, and never settles for less than perfect. Jussi designed his signature board to destroy everything from Alaska to Talma, summit to street rail, and beyond. Strap in and feel like any trick is suddenly possible. For jibbing around, Jussi feels the flow on his 154.

FEATURES:

* DISCIPLINE: ALL MOUNTAIN FREESTYLE
* SHAPE: Twin
* FEEL: Buttery
* CORE: Superfly II
* REINFORCEMENTS: Infinite Ride
Dualzone EGD
10:45 Sidewalls
* BASE: Sintered Vision
* FIBERGLASS: Triax
* FOOT SIZE: M/L
* SIDECUT: Radial
* LENGTH: 154.5
* EFFECTIVE EDGE: 118.5
* WIDTH: 24.8

Here's my binding of choice.

If you are set on Burton bindings, spend the extra little bit of cash and upgrade to the Cartels. Far more features than the Custom, and way way more comfortable if you are on them all day. The board is sweet though!! Just hate to get a mid/upper end board and put their entry level binding on it. Like putting a set of $99 tires on a Vette, just doesn't give you the full effect. Just my opinion, but you can get the 07 Cartels for around $120-140.

The cartels sound like a good idea. BTW if I had the new Z07 I'd keep those michlins stock! I was also looking into the ride RX series.

Ok, the real question is now.

The 07 Ride RX's
- cheaper
- pretty much the same
- better looking (joking)

08 RX's
- a little lighter
- way more $$$
- ugly (joking)
