So this season I've really got into riding park.. But I'm pretty sure I'm being limited by my board.. I've been riding for about 3 years on and off but this year I felt myself progressing more than I ever have before and found myself developing an interest in park riding.. I'm 5ft 8in 220lbs.. (Was a linebacker in high school) .. I wear a size 11 boot.. I've been riding a burton operator 157wide ever since I started snowboarding and I'm looking for something more geared for park riding .. I know I want something shorter and less wide but I'm not sure how small to go.. I've been curious to see what lib tech or gnu has to offer but I thought I'd come on here and see what advice you guys could throw my way
D2Cycles what dont you like about the parkstar outside of the park? i have a 152 and i love it all over the mountain... From carving pencil lines in corduroy to powder patches, and of course the park. Mind you i am only 155lb... Perhaps the 155 is too short for you outside of the park?
Ah fair enough.
For me carving hard usually means i have to wait for my wife at the bottom, so most of my all mountain riding is spent screwing around. I am looking to try the Echelon Killbox next for hopefully even more throwability
