Hi Guys!

I need some advice... I think I want to buy a Burton Yeasayer 2019 board - however I can't decide between Flying V and Flat Top.

I have been snowboarding for years but Im a chilled out rider and I find my new Salomon assassin too aggressive, I want an easy fun ride but one that is stable enough to go relatively fast and wont slip around on icy patches.

Any advice?

When you state the Assassin is too aggressive, it may be an issue of flex and/or sizing rather than camber profile.

What size Assassin are you riding, what is your weight, and what is your ability level?

in response to the questions regarding my assassin....

my board is a 153cm
I'm around 68kg
Im 5'7" and have been snowboarding since I was young but I only go on a holiday or two a year so I wouldn't say I was advanced just confident.

I like aspects of this board but I found it difficult to ride, It felt like a lot of effort and knocked my confidence! My partner has one and he rides more aggressively than me, so he seems to get on a lot better with it. Im also used to a more flexible board so probably a bad choice on my part but it had such good reviews!
