Nitro snowboards
Hi, I am from Argentina... I think I'm gonna buy a nitro snowboard. I really need a new snowboard, i 've been surfing 15 days each year during 10 years. It doesn't matters what type of snowboard i need ( all mountaing, free ride, park..). What Nitro snowboard do you recommend me to buy?? Don't look on the money i can afford . And also I don't need a wide snowboard.

Can I ask Nitro snowboards and not other brand?

I know you said it doesn't matter what type of boarding you plan to do, but you're wrong. Each board is made specifically for a certain type of riding. So, we can't make any suggestions.

i'm interested in why you want a nitro board. i think that i am one of the few on this forum that rides a nitro, and i absolutely love it. i strongly believe that it doesn't matter which brand you choose as long as it's a high end brand, which nitro definitely is. i've looked a lot at these boards, so here's what i can suggest:

eero - park board
mfm - park and pipe, a little stiffer than the eero

wiig - good for park/pipe but also for all mountain
suprateam - a little stiffer and more expensive than wiig, better at all mountain
template - still a balanced board, but stiffer and more expensive than wiig and suprateam

pantera - all mountain and powder board

if you really want a nitro and you can afford any of those, just choose based on what type of riding you want to do

The only thing I would worry about is the build quality. Without exaggerating EVERY board binding and boots people were riding in our locker room had to be sent for warranty at least once. Cracked edges, split sidewalls and snapped highbacks were especially common. When we spoke to the shops they said they had alot of issues with having to return them. In fact every eero they sold was returned.

Thanks for your suggestions, I said I don't care what type of snowboard i need because i do al little each Type. I can tell you that i'm not interested in a free ride snowboard. Perhams the most suitable type for me would be a all mountain, because i'm not a park lover.
I do this topic about nitro snowboards because, here in Argentina i know some people that sell this ones.
First of all i wanted to bye a Burton snowboard (specially a custom or custom X), but i've some problems on bring it to Argentina. Perhaps if you know any site from USA that sells snowboards and with DHL or Fedex take it to Argentina i can do it. What do you think?
thanks again

Simply^Ride 05-21-2008 01:10 PM might be able to ship international. That's were I got my board from..


Ok guys I contacted Linkan in Spanish in a private message and this is what he is looking for. He wants something like all mountain board, good enough for any type of terrain you trow at it(but he stay mostly on piste and off piste, he want to try out the park a little), I already did my share recommending of course the Rome Agent :laugh:.

His stats are
144 lbs
5'77 feet tall
foot size 10.5

Maybe you guys have other boards to suggest?

About the size of the board I was thinking a 154 should be fine... What do you guys think?

Also any of you know of places that will ship international?

Thanks for the help, he seems like a cool guy.
