Anyways, I've only owned one board... an Elan 151cm, not sure of the model. I always found it heavy and very stiff though, not sure if that was just my inexperience.
I'm thinking of purchasing the Flow Jewel 149cm
Is this a good choice for a beginner?
Will it suit me once I've progressed some?
It says this board is good for free riding and freestyle, anybody's personal experience? (I read a review on snow betty's and they said they loved it)
is this the right size board for me?
Also here are my stats
Shoe Size: 8.5
any suggestions on bindings, i was looking at the k2 cassette ltd from a couple season's ago, that have the polyurethane backing(i think)
sorry, if that was long-winded, just wanted to be detailed.
also, any other suggestions would be more than welcome!
i'm looking at buying a board that's a couple season's old so that I can save some cash, same schtick with the bindings
Im 5'8 140lbs and i bought the 149 model....if that helps!
