Salomon Man's Board - Length for me - Please help
Hi Guys, I am making a return to snowboarding this winter!!! SO EXCITED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am in the market for a new board... I am a freeride type of guy that rarely goes airborne off the kicker on the side, etc, but mostly enjoy ripping (in more ways than one, Oh!) and carving.
I am pretty set on getting a Man's Board after what I have heard of it, and I have my eyes on a 162 from last year at a great price. My past board is an oldschool Rossignol RS, also at 161. My concern is that I have lost weight since I last rode, going from about 185 to 160-170. The mans board looks like a sweet combination of new tech with no BS.
Considering I'm that i'm now noticeably lighter, would you guys still recommend a 162 for me, or should I look @ a smaller board? 159 perhaps??
I just want to do the best I can with my tight budget!
Please give me any pointers here, including suggestion for other boards. My ears are open and welcome any wisdom.
Thanks in advanced!
