Ride Antic... good for a beginner?
OK so here's my deal... Went snowboarding for the first time recently and LOVED IT. Too bad I have to wait until next season to try again. Anyway, there are good deals on boards now since it is the end of the season and I was looking into the Antic by Ride. What do you guys think? Too advanced for a noob? I want something that will hold me for a while but not discourage progression. Some say it is an "Advanced Intermediate - Expert" board, yet others say it is a good all-arounder for beginners.
Here are my specs...
Skill Level: only one day under my belt but didn''t fall to bad (used to skateboard)
Height: 5ft 7in
Weight: 145-150 lbs (thin)
Shoe Size: 9.5 sneaker (9 or 10 boot)
Intended Use: mostly cruising and carving, (no air or rails for a long while)
SIZES: 151, 154, 157, 160, 163, 158 Wide, 162 Wide, 165 WIde
TYPE: All mountain with slight directional shape
Turn Radius:7.8m (@ 160cm)
Carbon Array 3™
Foundation Tuned Core™
Carbon & Aramid Laminates
Fusion 4000 Base™
Should I choose something different? I have a choice between a 151 and a 158 wide in this board. Any suggestions for a different board.
Thanks in advance,
