Great review, very useful for sure. I could use a piece of advise though.
I just bought a 157 (I'm 1.78m, 64kg) X8, to replace my 154 Ride Theory, which I felt kinda short for my height. Gonna use it with Cartel Bindings and some crappy Burton boots (I think Moto is the model). Do you think X8 is a good board to have as my only board? Or did I fuck up buying it?
