Suggestions for moguls/trees
This is my first season boarding (almost a dozen times), but I've come to a point where I feel like I should step up from my beginner board. I'm looking to get new board and bindings, hopefully by the end of this season, or at least before the next season starts. I've been looking at a lot of sites lately but as soon as I'd fix in on one, I'd start reading negative reviews. At the moment, I've been thinking about the Ride Antic with Ride RX bindings.
Here's what I'm working with:
I'm 5'6, 145lbs, with a boot size 9 (US). I don't spend any time in the park, but I'm looking for a board setup with great control. I ride in double/single diamonds, and I like to ride in moguls and trees. I'd rather go with more control over speed, and the lighter the better. Shorter (if possible) too, 149-153 range would be nice.
I'm not too familiar with most of the brands, though I have been told to stay away from a few certain ones. As for price, hopefully in the 300-450 range for board and bindings.
What do you guys think, will the Ride setup be ok for what I'm looking for?
