Smokin' Snowboards 172 (Smokin' Jay Quintins compay)for everyday, super stiff, long radius.
Rode Arbor A-Frame/S-Series 170's for years, still ride one at least once a week.
Powder days I've been riding the swallowtails
168 O-Sin, Still a fun board
185 Rossi Undertaker, nice and stiff, carves real nice
176 '07 Prior Powstick, new narrow real flexible nose,flexes and rides over everything.
I know my Arbor boards only seem to last about one season of hard riding before they start losing thier camber, they still ride nice, but don't have the pop of a new board.
Steepwater Plow 171 with Ride Spi bindings for pretty much everything. Great board, it can handle anything.
Ride Nation 168 rock board. I stopped buying Rides because they rarely made it through a season. But their bindings rock.
I also have a F2 Lancelot 164 swallowtail. great board, but its a little to short for me.
And when there is absolutly nothing else to do, I have a Capita Unorthodox for screwing around in the park. But that doesnt happen very often.

- Burton BMC 162 ('04 I think?). Great all around board, but I beat the crap out of the heel edge so it's becoming a rock board.
- Burton FL Project 162 ('99). Super light ("FL" stands for "F***ing Light"), stiff, and great all-around shape. Nice in the steeps. If I'm not taking the split in the bc (I know, I know...) I'm taking this one. That guy who wrote the approach ski article in Backcountry should try one of these for his yo-yo sessions. Too bad they don't make these anymore. I guess the Custom X would probably be the closest?
- Old Burton Air ('95?) 160. Still works. Made it up and down Shasta 8 years ago.
- One pair of Burton P1 Carbon bindings that go on whatever board I'm riding (including the split).
