New Board Suggestions?
Hey everyone, what's up?
Im going off to college in Vermont next year, and Im looking to buy a new board that fits me better than what I have now. I like to do everything on the mountain including ride the park for a while, but Im not exactly an avid park rider. I am an intermediate rider, however Im looking for a board that will hopefully last me a while and also provide some stability at higher speeds.
Here are the problems. I am 6'1", 185 lbs. and have a size 12 boot. I know I need a wide board, but how wide should I go? Any suggestions on boards? I know its out of season and im really looking to spend anywhere from about 200-400 dollars. Thanks a lot.
Ps, I am pretty well fit so I am thinking that if I get a fairly flexible board, but maybe a little bit longer that It will serve me well and I will be able to handle it because of my strength? I was thinking a 163 K2 Darkstar wide? Let me know what you think.
