Help choosing right size board - Bataleon ET v Goliath
 
Hi guys, I've done some research but I'm getting stuck on choosing a proper size board for me. I currently ride a Burton Pill board... not sure what year but it's the black/pink board... I'm pretty sure it's a female board:laugh: The size of the board is 152... and currently comes up to my nose. I feel like the board should be much shorter? But I'm trying to decide between the Bataleon ET 149 and the Bataleon Goliath 150... but these aren't much shorter than my current board? I feel like I should be riding something like a 147.

I ride mostly all mountain and like to bomb down the mountain. I also like to carve. But I want start going off jumps and buttering better. I go off small ones here and there, nothing extreme at all.


Stats:

Male

5'4

145lbs

SZ 7.5/8 boot

Intermediate rider




Should I be looking for a shorter board? Or would the Goliath 150/ET 149 suit me fine? Any other suggestions?

Why do you think you should ride a shorter board?

Anyhow both the goliath and ET will work for your purposes, the ET is advertises as more park then the goliath but the truth is they are very similar boards. Anyhow you are welcome for the not help i just provided.
