I just ordered a K2 Raygun Wide Snowboard from House Boardshop today and I'm starting to think it may have not been the best choice. I consider myself an advanced boarder. I like to push myself and my board to its limits which of course often leads to lots of rock scratches and dings but it's worth it. I tend to prefer snowboarding off the groomed runs where the powder and trees are and if I am on groomed runs, I love going very fast. Unlike my friend who has a variety of ski's depending on the snow, I prefer one board that is versatile. I like going off jumps too, but not as much as I like going through trees and boarding down cool mountain formations. I don't do any of the grind rails/boxes or halfpipe.
After reading some reviews on the Raygun, it seems the board is designed for beginners to intermediates.
I have been using a 159" Nitro Magnum for the last 5 years with white union bindings. The board is great for high speeds, but often I wish it was a bit easier to manuever.
Is this board still a good choice or based on my preferences should I continue looking for something different?
