Default new to the forum looking for snowboard advice

hey. how is everyone doing? i just joined the forum looking for some advice for my new board. I used to have a rossignol 156 i bought used from a friend and i learned to board on it and now that im getting pretty decent, im easily going down on diamonds and double diamonds and starting to use the terrain park a bit. i am looking for a flexible board that i can easily maneuver. im 6'0" and 130lbs (yea i know pretty light) and i live in maryland so the slopes that we have here are pretty much ice with barely any powder what so ever. so like i said i was thinking about a 151-152 flexible board under $300. any suggestions?

Honestly looking in the buy/sell section here would be a good idea.As for a board as you are an icecoaster too boards with magne-traction gnu/lib tech, rossignol and a few other comapanies) or vario sidecut (never summer) and some of the other variations would be a good thing to look for. That way you don't have to always run a super sharp edge to get the grip you need. A Lib Tech skate banana or Neversummer Evo would be two suggested often on here but unless used they go for a bit more $. K2 and Flow are making some really nice boards that won't set you back as much.

anybody else can throw some brands and models at me. i looked at the never summer evo and it looks legit and what other users said it will fit my needs.

so i need a flexible board that can carve well and be easily maneuverable.

If you check out a site called whiskeymilitia.com you will see some great deals on boards.Lately it has been O-matic, Artec, and Stepchild. Usually the boards are in the 140-150$ range.Thing is you need to act quick as each deal is only up for a certain amount of time and you need to check back until they have the board you might want.

u can get last years park pickles and skate bananas for fairly affordable prices.

another brand to consider especially for price i would say check out the bataleon evil twin or airobic (airobic would probably work for you as a fairly light rider, its VERY flexy).

ok well i may have spoken a bit soon, especially considering your $300 budget. however if you scrounge around, there are deals to be had. 155 bataleon airobic 2011 - $310 on amazon. other good places to look are at the outlet on evo.com or the-house.

to get a premium board that has a sidecut like vario grip (never summer) or magnetraction (lib tech and gnu) you will have to spend more like $400-450 for last years models if u want something new (just from a preliminary search around the net).

the evo outlet has alot of really cheap boards and there are several internet sources for boards in this price range. just remember that the selection is bottom of the barrel, you get what you pay for and there ARE diamonds in the rough but its gotta just be the perfect item at the right time.
