I'm 159cm and 62kgs somewhat advanced beginner (i think). I can comfortably link turns. Currently just trying to make my turns tighter and more dynamic.
I mostly ride in Aus but have gone to NZ and Japan as well. I normally stay clear of parks but enjoys everything else.
Thanks for the advice Neni, I've never thought about the highbacks. Currently the Escapade seems to fit my nike boots perfectly in terms of width so I'll be interested on how the mens version differs! I'll see if there are any demo stands when I go.
