...at least i am specific : )
Hi there! first post and thread here..
i am thinking of buying a new board. i currently have a no-name board (well, it says "Mystic" on the deck, and the guy at the shop, 7 years ago or so , when snowboarding in this forgotten place called romania was still something new, said that it was made by Nitro, but whatever..)
my "style", if i can call it that, is all-round, meaning i just carve downhill, i sometimes like to get speed, and i like to to do some spins and buttering attempts on flatter areas where i have the balls to try. some 180s, manuals, basically flatland stuff. i did ride some rails/park stuff and i intend to do this again, but just occasionally, i don't intend to put much energy in learning jibbing. My ideal style, would be going downhill comfortably and pulling 180's and stuff while doing it, but still be able to control the board at higher speeds.
so.. what board would you guys and girls recommended for me?
i should mention i don't ride an awful lot: 1-3 weeks per season
also, i would like it cheap (because of the above point), cheap meaning below 200$. am i able to find a decent board around 160-180$, considering the current sales? well, i guess i'll find out, just name a few models that should fit me so that i know what i should be looking for
thanks in advance!
(other info about me, if necessary: shoe size 8, weight 143.3lbs (65kg), height 170cm (5'7" i think), age 25, still living with parents
, so i guess i need a board around 148cm long)
