I have been riding the same Burton board since I started snowboarding nearly two decades ago and I realized when I rode a rental board last season that I’m a much better snowboarder than I thought I was.  So I think it’s time for a new board.  I’m debating whether to get the Custom Camber or the Feelgood Camber.  I tried my nephew’s Custom 151 (same size as my current board) and I really liked how it held the edges and found it easier to go from toe to heal side and vice versa than my old board, but I found it a little hard to stop at the bottom of the run (sorry skier whose skis I ran over).  I’m wondering if I’d like the Feelgood better.  I am a 5’ 6.5” 160 lb woman with size 9 boots.  My husband thinks a woman’s board might be too narrow for me.  I’m just looking for a board that will be fun to ride on mostly groomed sometimes icy trails.  I’m not looking to bomb down the mountain or hit the half pipe.  What would you wise snowboard gurus recommend?
