I've been riding for a few years but only get to go on 1-3 trips a year. I have been to big sky, crystal mtn, lake tahoe and goign to whistler this year. I've been all over western US rockies basically. I prefer riding in powdery conditions but i think that might be my board bc i can ride more aggressively. I have a K2 illusion 06. I like playing in the rough terrain- ungroomed moguls etc if its fresh powder, some trees but I've never dabbled in the park. I'd consider myself a lower level advanced rider. I'm looking to upgrade my board this year. I've seen mixed reviews for just about every board- I just want a good all mountain that can handle powder if it exists turns easy, so I can hit trees/moguls/ungroomed but since icy conditions have been more common than snowy past few yrs in colorado i need a decent edge i guess. i was looking at a k2 raygun, k2 turbo dream, a rep on dog funk recommended lib tech banana skate.. any suggestions? im 5-9 175 w 10 boot
I saw some of your posts and you obviously know what you are talking about so was wondering if you give me some info so I can decide on a board.
I am a beginner, didnt go for years, but last year went twice and was pretty decent.
I am 6'1" between 180-185 with size 11 boots; going to be in NY and NJ mostly.

Hey I just bought a flow quantum 2012 off your website. But I was lazy when I bought it and I didn't create an account. I lost the order number but I did order it using Paypal. Is there anyway I can get the order number back so I can track the shipping on my board? Thanks in advanced, Nick.
