(...not even sure if with a Rocker'd Board, If I should've gone with something shorter than 159?)
I presume it's going to feel a bit "squirrelly" by comparison? Looser in the straights kinda thing? The specs for the board say I should be in the fit range for the 159 @ 6ft. 225-50 lb. It's going to be a softer flexing board? right? How's it going to compare in the turns on our wonderful MI Hard Pack? (...read slab ice!)
I know some of you guy's, DaveZ, Leo, & some others I've read in our MI section ride a lot of different types of boards, and since this board would seem to be completely different than what I've been learning on, I was hoping you could give me a heads up or a Head start on anything important I should know b4 I slap it down on the snow!
Thanks!! (...ps. I also asked them to ship some Winter
along with the board!!!)
Congrats! That's awesome man.
I went from positive camber to a hybrid, I've never ridden a rocker. Your take on it sounds correct.
