I'm going to be quitting my job and doing an instructor course over in Canada next season (I live in the UK currently), so I'm looking for some perfect fitting gear to break in this season
Hi, and thanks for the additional info. The Parkboard (even in 148 cm) is over a centimer wider (at the center inserts) than your foot is long. If you then add in normal stance angles you are going to be 2-3 cm inside of the boards edges. I would not suggest that. Are you looking purely for a park board or will this be used for riding trails and pow as well?
