Hey everyone, I'm kinda new here. I currently have a Lamar Mission 151 board and I am looking to upgrade. I have been shopping around and I really like what burton, rossignol, and k2 have. Are these good compnaies? Are there others I should consider? I really don't want to pay too much more that $200. I've seen a burton elite on sale for $215 brand new, but it's not wide. Do I need a wide board since I weigh 185 and wear size 12 shoes? Thanks for any help. Gotta go.
Forum is the same quality as Burton. Stay away from skier/poll smoker companies like rossignol, and k2. $260 is a damm good price for a board that's gonna last a long time. If you're happy with junk like Lamar then look for a Sapient.

I mostly just carve the slopes. I am failry new but I like to try some diamonds and I fly down the blue and green slopes. Ratio: slope 80, park 20. I don't ride the park much because I suck at it, lol. But I like trying anyway. If $200 is too low, what should I expect to pay?
Also, I do not really like my lamar, I got as a gift and just went with it.

depends on what kind of angles your comfortable with. at 185 you were riding a 151? for carving i'd say pick yourself up something at least 159, prob 161 for the extra edge hold and try a more forward stance so you can carve deep without the drag.
