Park board size question (Nitro Haze)
I've been riding a Ride Machete 155cm, and I really like it. It is a great board for all mountain; awesome on powder, and great for natural jumps. My riding consists about 70% of all mountain riding (mostly out of bounds), but the 30% left of the time I like to play around in the park. I have to confess that I feel the board a little stiff and big for park riding(I'm a 5'7", 158 lb. dude btw). For that reason I decided to get an extra smaller, and more flexible board to play around, especially when there is no fresh snow.
I found a last season's Nitro Haze 149cm for a really great price ($130), and I heard it is a incredibly soft board to play around. My questions are:
1- Is this board (really flexible) recommended to improving my park skills?
2- Is 149cm too small for me? I mean, I went to REI to take a look at boards and 149cm boards seemed super small.
3- Should I even bother buying an extra board for park riding since a lot of people like the Machete for it as well?
