Hi everyone, I am very interested in getting a new board. I am in between beginner and intermediate. What I want is a fantastic all around board. What I'm looking for is a very forgiving board. I want it to be absolutely catch free. I want a very surfy and playful feel at low speeds but a board that holds an edge very well and stability is EXTREMELY important to me at high speeds. I need ALL of this before I drop $400 on a board.
I also want this board to grow with me. I want to be able to learn on it now and I want to be able to ride it 5 years if I want to. I want my board to have pop but be soft and loose for jibbing as well.
Basically, I want a go everywhere do everything board that excels in stability, edge hold, easiness of riding, & COMPLETELY catch free while still being able to grow with me as I progress.
I also have a few questions.
1) I'm 6'0 200 lbs. I will still grow probably an inch or two but my weight will probably only grow by about 10 lbs if that since I am slightly overweight. Will this board work well for my height and weight in a 159 wide?
2) Is this board a rocker between the feet and flat/mild camber tip and tail like the skate banana? Does the profile of this board work well in all conditions and in all aspects?
3) If not this board, what board would you recommend for ~$400?
4) Is this board durable?
So overall, is this board a good board for me? Do you think it meats all the aspects of a board I have stated? Any advice or comments you guys may have?
Thanks and sorry for the really long and winded post
