Hi Guys,

I am in search of a new Snowboard and seek peoples advise/experience with what I am after.

I am from Australia and do most of my boarding in ice if not slight pow.

I am 5"11, 180 pounds, size 10 boot and consider myself an intermediate boarder. I do 95% mountain and 5% everything else.

So far I have narrowed myself down to a couple of boards:
Yes Asym (the greats) 156
Ride Machete GT 157

Bindings: Union Force

Boots: Burton Ruler (like speed laces + small footprint)

What do u guys think about my choices?
Any additional info you need?

Thanks for your help

sounds good to me. I say go for the Yes board.

But I'm a girl, so what do I know.

Agree with Kara, between those 2 boards definitely The Greats. The Machete GT is a super burly deck for muscle-packed bodybuilders.
Also, you could consider upsizing to the 158 for the Yes deck, depending on your riding style.
