Beginner looking at first board. Opinions please!
Hello, I have recently caught the snowboarding fever big time after coming back from my school's annual ski trip. I loved every second of it, and was nailing black runs by the 3rd day. and have already started saving for next years trip. I also hope to purchase a snowboard quite soon.
I am currently looking at the 2013 GNU Pickle PBTX, and was wondering if anybody has had any experience on it? I am looking for a board that has a nice pop, has a medium flex and can do well in both park and mountain, and the Pickle seems ideal.
I spent most of my time on the mountain and stayed away from the park for most of the trip, but the last couple of days I started hitting some tables and rails and really took a liking to it.
I'm around 5ft 11 and 60-70 kgs. Would a 156 be ideal?
