New board advice
Looking for advice on selecting a new board.
I've been riding for 8 years, mostly at a small resort in Indiana on almost entirely man made snow, might go out west occasionally, or east for a quick vacation. I enjoy cruising, can ride the blues, sometimes the blacks, not a big park rider.
I'm 51 years old, 5'6" tall, 162 lbs.
I ride a 2010 Flow Merc 151 now, looking to upgrade to a higher quality board with a sintered base.
I have looked at the Burton Custom Flying V and the Lib Tech Skatebanana, both have been recommended by local shops. After reading the forums here it looks like the Banana is a park board, maybe not so good for cruising? I think they recommended it because of the good performance on icy conditions.
Any advice on these 2 or others is welcome. Also looking for advice on size, is 154 too big for me?
