Hi all,

Sorry for creating another similar topic but I need your help too...

Length: 5'9
Weight: 170lbs
Boots: Burton Moto 10
Binding: Burton Custom M (it's pretty new, so I wouldn't like to change it)

I'm a intermediate/advanced rider, going to my 6th snowtrip (I'm from Brazil =S) and I decided to buy a new snowboard since I don't use my old Burton Air 2008 anymore.
I'd like a board to begin playing in the park and hit some kicks, as I used only to race with my friends down the mountain... This way, I think I'm another case of an all-around boarder... I'm going to Park City next month and I'm pretty focused on learning some tricks (3's, rails and stuff) and I don't know which board, which size and where should I get it.

Before reading the topics here, I was leaning to buy a Burton Process or Custom (I'd like to spend something between 400-500 usd) but after reading about another brands, I just got more confused... Actually, I just want a forgiving board able to keep up with my skier friends and with some pop to hit a 360 (I'm dreaming about this day)

After doing some research, It seems that Ride Machete would be a good choice (158?)

Should I buy it from Trusnow, Evo, The-house and stuff? I'm afraid I can't find it there...

What do you guys suggest?

Thank you very much and sorry for my english =P

Thanks for your help man.

Actually, I`m more interested in knowing if the Ride Machete is a good board for my purpose as per my first post. Furthermore, I'd like to know what size would be the best for me.

=)
