May try a box or 2 but with my knees and age I don't think I will go for more. Mostly ride in be in pa so no big mountains. Ice and hard pack

well I'd probably say stay away from the Throwback and the Coda then, especially on the ice/hardpack and if you're not riding rails etc., you want a firmer, damper board than either of those.

Neither of the Bohemian or Element will be "too much" board for that riding.

The Bohemian is still very fresh in my mind since I rode it earlier this season and in some varied conditions over a few days in North Carolina. It was a super-responsive board and that's what surprised me the most, so for ripping groomers you'll be fine. The Element is a more-than-capable board, too. It is just not so fresh in my mind anymore, and costs $100 more than the Marhar.

AngrySnowboarder rode the Bohemian, too. I don't think he publishes his reviews until sometime over the summer so maybe keep an eye out for that if you want another opinion on that board.

I am going to start kicking out reviews hopefully one or two per week. All of my 2015 board reviews then should be published by end of June.

IDK if this board is still available but if it is, and if anyone is looking for a review of it, here goes:

Just from watching that video, you can tell that board isn't the least bit damp. Thing looks like it's chattering all over the place. Dampness has never been a big Capita strength though. If you like a damp ride, probably best to look elsewhere.

Yeah, there's almost no weight to the board and it's not very damp. Definitely gonna chatter.

Dampening for me is ehhhh not that big of a deal usually. I have been riding mostly park decks so I think I have just gotten accustomed to the chatter that goes with the territory of a board that has is relatively soft and/or has a lot more "feel". I sometimes forget to qualify statements like, "You can charge it if you want" because what I really mean is "If you're a reasonably good snowboarder, you can push this deck pretty hard, but don't expect a smooth ride"

Yeah, I'm not real huge on an overly damp ride either. To me, a really damp board just kind of feels lifeless.

But, now that I'm on the wrong side of 30, I like a little bit of dampness for the sake of the old knees.
