Thanks everyone. After reading all the "will this board fit me" threads I am second guessing the 156 so I stopped up to the shop and found a Rossi Taipan in 158 midwide. Anyone have any thoughts on this? They have it listed for 279 but will price match and I found it for 125. So Rossi or stick with the ride?
Did you spend more than $125 on your Ride 156? Can you exchange the deck and get some money back? If so then sure, why not grab the Rossi for $125? Use the extra money for some added lessons, a lift ticket from a mountain you don't usually hit or just save it. I wouldn't get too wrapped up with the decision. Ride more and then figure out what you truly want.
