Arbor Wasteland - 2011

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/arbor/logo/arbor_logo.gif

The diamond in the Arbor jewels. The Wasteland is designed to dominate any transition on the mountain, be it a perfect park kicker or an impossible backcountry windlip hit. Arbor have used standard biaxial glass and reduced the core thickness between the bindings to keep the Wasteland manageable. Carbon and Kevlar reinforcement runs through the tips so you can stomp those tail heavy landings and pop monster ollies. A certified piece of snowboarding science.

I bought this board new two years ago to replace my old k2 illusion. It has been an incredible board and I have progressed a ton with it. I enjoyed it immensely but recently hit a rock going 45+ according to my gps. I was starting to carve through some powder and felt it smack and ended up bending the edge and breaking a portion of the sidewall and crushing the core. Now I’m in the market and trying to decide what to get next. Would the K2 slayblade compare favorably? I like to ride very aggressively and am a fairly advanced rider. I dabble with a few of the bigger jump lines but stick primarily to the double diamonds and big mountain terrain. Thanks in advance for any help.
