Help with new board: Rome Reverb Rocker, Skate Banana or Gnu Pickle??
Looking for a new soft Board for playing on the mountain.
73kg / 160lbs
183cm / 6'0
Nitro Ultra 13 US11 / 44 / 29
Stance 23" +18/-15
I´m not an aggressive rider. Stay almost all the time on the mountain, riding groomers and buttering, also jumps and some powder.
Because I´m still learning everything so would like a sort forgiving board.
At first I was considering the Jones Mountain twin but after looking at it in the shop yesterday I think it´s too stiff for my style. After talking with the shopmen there I narrowed my choice down to three boards now:
- Rome Reverb Rocker (157 or 155W?)
- Lib Skate Banana (156 or 156W?)
- Gnu Pickle (156 or 156W?)
The two bananas have the same width but the wide version (Waist 26.5 Nose 30.5) seems to be too wide for my 44 feet?
I tend to get the Reverb Rocker now and still not sure if I should get a Wide? The shopman yesterday has the same size feet and said 44 is in-between and I could ride both…
Rome Reverb Rocker 157: Waist 254, Nose/Tail 295.8
155W: Waist 261, Nose/Tail 302.2
Which fits me better regarding the width and length??
