Which board?
 
Yes I recently just made a thread, tried to delete it but i'm a noob so this will be my last thread on this topic.

Yesterday I went to the snowboard asylum in london to try out some boots which were the burton ruler, 32 lashed, vans aura and salomon launch.

The launch boots were perfect, I either need a size 10.5 or 11 UK (I have big feet) that is my main concern,

I am 6 foot, 120lb and I believe I have found a good board and bindings (the burton custom reflex)

The rome factory rocker is 155cm (the guy in the shop recommended a smaller board), the main concern I have is are my feet too big? Do I need a wide board? He said to try and avoid it because I will mainly been doing rails and piste in the snow dome.

The board is hybrid, is this good? I don't need speed so much because the slope is only a few hundred metres and there are too many people to avoid.

I'm a confident rider but only have couple of weeks under my belt.

Is this a good board?


Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Haha.. fair enough. I think you will be fine with a non wide board especially if you find a 10.5 UK boot that fits nice. That is an 11.5 US.

To put it in perspective I am 6'3 205 size 12UK or size 13US. I really did not ride a wide board at your foot size. The Rome tour seems like a good board and once you get use to the rocker hybrid you will love it trust me. Also think the 153 will be fine for you.

Thanks, at the moment I'm leaning more towards the Rome factory rocker which seems to be better for bobbing.
