Stiff under foot (like race ski status), but a buttery tip and tail is preferred
Symmetrical design between tip and tail (So you could mount the binding facing either way and it would matter)
The waist dirrectly centered
something durable as fuck
I'm 5'11, 165 lbs and I have an equal background as a racer and as a park skier.
I've been hearing good things about Surface double time, Volk wall, Rossi S4 & scratch, as well as k2 recoil. Let me know what you guys think of those and give me some more to think about!
