Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Advice buying a new board

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have a rossignal scope 2006 model.

I bought this before I could ride, had one season with it, riding 2-3 times a week.

The had 6 weeks in japow riding thigh high powder and then I was put away for 7 years.

Took it to Mayrhofen this season and although it was great in powder it has very little flex and is hard going on piste.

So with my riding massively improved since I got it should I buy a newer better tech board and if so what kind of thing is good.

My board is 162 and I am 6'2" and about 16 stone

Next season I am more likely to go again and might just rent and take a few boards out but still have no idea what's out there.

Douk have some cracking good deals in their sale. Hand made boards

I'm about your height and weight. Earlier this year I decided to put my 9 year old K2 Nemesis out to pasture and bought a Douk Duke. I'm into softboot carving and wanted a traditional camber board (but was willing to try out a hybrid). Before I bought the Duke I looked at the following all around 164-175 wide boards

1. Donek Incline
2. Nitro Team
3. Arbor A-frame
4. Jones flagship
5. Rossi magtec xv
6. Never Summer "The Chairman"
7. Capita "Supermacho"
8. Swoard Dual (175)
9. Coiler BXFR

I went for the duke on the basis that 1. It was on sale, 2. It was in the length and width that I wanted (Although the side cut is deeper than I would like) and it's a Uk manufacturer. If I like it I'll go for a full custom job from them next time.

Thanks, interesting list and I will take a look. I guess I need to go ride a few boards really and work out size, shape and camber.

Might try get a test day somewhere but being in Cornwall it pretty hard to do.

What size is your duke?

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.
