Help me find my 2014 board?
I'm kinda bummed. My Arbor Westmark, Victoria, has some significant damage. I broke the tail doing some tamedogs. I epoxied it back together with shredded paper used as filler for the core that chipped out. The top sheet and bottom are pulled apart at the tail, but I'll see what it looks like in the morning.
Anyways, it's looking like I might need a new board. I am looking for a board that can handle up to 45' gaps or so, and rails. My Arbor Westmark handled both jumps and rails pretty well, and I'd like to see if I can find something similar.
I've been browsing other threads before posting this, and I didn't really find exactly what I needed for this year. Sorry I had to open a new thread.
For profile, I've ridden rocker for the past two years. I'd like to try hybrid or camber though; I'm open to anything.
I ride small hills in the midwest, and I ride about 90% park and 10% all mtn. I'd rate myself at intermediate to advanced skill level in park-style riding. The snow I ride can be sometimes icy, and snow-cone ish. Rarely, do I ride on a day where I'd need powder float.
I am 5'10'' or so, but I only weigh 135 lbs. The past boards I have had both were 153 cm. I don't mind going a couple cm shorter, but any longer wouldn't help.
I already have an older board that is really jibby for days where I just make laps through rails, so I'd say overall I'm looking for for a jump that can handle some medium to larger jumps with good stability, but doesn't ride like a 2 x 4.
Thanks, and sorry about the first time post on this account. I lost the password to my old one, Moe_Lester.
