Don't do it. Go for a more narrow board with slightly more flex. T. Rice is too much board. TRS would be way better for intermediate-advanced and is still stiff enough.
I have a T. Rice and it really is a advanced-expert big mountain freestyle machine. I thought I needed it, but the NS Proto was a much better fit for me, and I consider myself advanced.
