What Board do You Ride?

Hey all, with the winter holidays approaching and plans in place for another boarding holiday I just thought it would be interesting to know what the snowboarders out there are riding. If you are a skier but have a favorite board then let us know. I would ask about ski's but I don't really know much about ski equiptment.

I like to ride different boards so i usually keep a board for a season then sell it on ebay and buy something new, it worked much better when I lived in the UK because I could buy it over here, use it for a season then make a profit by selling it in the UK. Boots and bindings stick with me.

Last year I rode an Arbor Roundhouse, this year I am going to give the Ride Fleetwood a bash. I had the Fleetwood 3 years ago and loved it, one of the best low cost boards I have ever been on.

Nitro Suprateam....

Since I live in Florida, I get out once maybe twice a season for a week or less, so i need a board that can do everything well, and the Nitro is great.

Ride Theory board, Burton Cartel bindings, 32 i forget what model boots.
A couple years old but I love this set up. I used to have Flow bindings on it, they were nice to have on some of the hills out here cause you have to strap in so often (little hills) and I didnt even have to sit down to do it. But the Cartels have way better feel and control.
32 boots are awesome.

I've got a Peter Line Forum, with Flow bindings. The Flow's get a bad wrap, but i love them for all mountain riding, or when riding with skiers. I spend the money on good boots - Burton Sabbath's have been my first choice for some time now... absolutely no complaints with them.

I have used Ride RX bindings for the last three years and I am now changing to either the Ride Spi's or the Salomon Chief's. Boots are Salomon of some kind, they are comfortable and give me no issues so I will keep them until they fall apart.

I think I am heading the Calgary this year, does anyone know of a really good cold wax? I have a bunch of different kinds but mostly stick to OneBallJay, always open to try new things.

My Volkl AC4s sold me on Volkl for life ... I'm hoping to pick up a pair of one of their wider skis (I'm thinking Gotamas ... and hoping that maybe I can find an old pair from before they added in the rocker, still researching this though) and start playing around with backcountry/side-country a bit.

That being said, I know nothing about their snowboards ... however I have to assume that if their skis are that awesome, the snowboards can't be all bad, right?

ROME SDS- solution is the board name. then i have rome 390 bindings and rome boots. the rest of my setup is:
-quiksilver jacket
-not sure of the brand of my pants
-spy soldier goggles
-grenade gloves.
-and if need be... a rome bandana for covering the face from the ice crystals.

my board is absolutely OLD lol... but it still rides like its brand new. i am probably going to get a new one this year, but i worry that the new boards wont stack up to the performance of my old one.

scottish mike... there is a brand called bluebird wax that i heard is good, but for me i just go to the craft store and buy the boxes of wax they sell. then i rub the wax on the bottom of my board and then rub my wax iron over it. then remove the excess. it really works pretty well for me. it doesnt last as long, but it definately gives me an advantage when i race my friends downhill. just a little food for thought.
i have to reapply it everytime i go out though. lol i find that the wax on my edges wears off after about a day of riding, so i just reapply it there for the next day.
