Hey! I just have to share this with you because this board just asks for it. Got it on my trip to the Austrian Alps this winter and it did it all and then some.
It just has the flex thats right for it all, just enough to keep you going strong anywhere, be it groomed, pow, woods or the park. Since it's a lightweight board with a wide shape it just floats off-piste and allows you to enjoy at full throttle all you can from things like virgin natural jumps, rainbow-like trees to much more. Rugged terrain is harmless, the board absorbs shocks and landings very smooth. Groomed runs are a blast, you can go super fast with no effort and the turns are very clean. Rails are a stable ground with all the extra width and theres no problem with the edges, the angles are just right. Due to this shape, you need less effort to hold a grab and pull an extra 180 while in the air.
Id get it again for this sort of all-mountain freestyle riding I did. If on a better budget, Id probably be looking for a better base, but still the 2000 is easy to maintain.
Dont miss the looks, they are not quite like youd expect from the picture. They are very subtle and once you see the top sheet from up-close you will be amazed, because they have an engraved aspect.
Good luck with it, hope to see your pictures here!
I'm a borderline beginner/intermediate...
I'm a borderline beginner/intermediate rider thats looking to buy a first board and I've narrowed it down to this board and three others. The other three are, a K2 Brigade, Burton Custom V Rocker and a Burton Joystick. I basically do a lot of carving and go down groomed green, blue and sometimes black diamond slopes. I might get into a bit of rails but park isn't for me. Which board will be best for me if I'm 6'3, 210 pounds and about a 12.5 boot size? Thanks in advance.
And if there is any other board you want to recommend feel free to do so.
I would recommend the Burton Fix, from first hand experience, its a stable board. Good for rails. I started out on one.
Get a 159' board length, And the boots... get a set of large bindings.
Look, I would have agreed with Fred, except, if your like me and aren't exactly in close contact with the snowboard world, then any burton is not for you. The burton boards necessitate Burton Bindings, which while not horrible, can be a pain if they break and no one in the area has the proper replacement items or affordable Burton options. I would recommend the brigade. I just like K2. But if you are just looking for an all-around board, check out forum, nitro, or neversummer.
