Just wondering your suggestions. I'm currently on a k2 151 Believer with the flat base. I like the flat base stability on flats, but am finding turn to turn harder to initiate, and blowing out heelside turns. Not sure if it is too long for me too.

Thanks
Camber is still king in edge toe edge performance. It gives you that litlle bit of spring and pop that is missing in other designs. The Goliath 153 will be a great choice for your specs.
