I flip-flopped. I want a Bataleon.
Now the question is, which to get?
Weight: 125 (130+ with gear)
Boot size: 9
Riding style: Want an everything board. Pow, Park, Groomers, Pipe, etc.
Age: Done growing
Location: Ice coast, New York
I'm deciding between The Jam and Goliath. The Jam comes in 153 minimum, and the Goliath comes in 149 minimum. Bataleon calls the Goliath their "all around everything freestyle stick". So I'm thinking I should go with the 149 Goliath given my weight. I could center the stance, and since it's a shorter board, it might act like a 153 Jam. I say this because BurtonAvenger gave a review on the Goliath that said it was more of a freeride geared board. Aside from how weight affects control over the length and stiffness of a board, can't you slightly change the dynamic of the board by either centering the stance or relaxing the stance back? If my logic is correct, I should probably go with the Goliath 149. Is my thinking correct here? What do you guys recommend?
Along with this I'll grab some Union bindings and thirtytwo Unleashed boots I think. Do Unions tend to cut off circulation?
