New snowboard for my son, please help
Hello, my son is already hitting me up for a new snowboard next year.
He really deserves one too. He's put in alot of time on his first cheaper board.
He currently has a Zuma wave 138 ( He is 4'8" appx and about 95 lbs)
He wants a park board with lots of flex, and good pop. He will keep the Zuma as a second board.
I have looked around and what I read on the Rome Label, sounds like a solid choice.
So, I guess my question is...Should I go with a smaller 133 for his park board, or stick with a 138, so he can grow into it?
How much difference does a smaller park board make?
Also, I am open to suggestions as far as brand, and make of board.
Thanks guys, you've been alot of help this year.:thumbsup:
Capita Stairmaster Mini Youth is another option in both 133 or 138.
Mind you, I've never shopped there but they seem to be sold out everywhere else.
Disclaimer: I don't have kids so I couldn't make a recommendation based on experience but the standard Stairmaster is a really popular board for park riders.
How old and how much do you anticipate him to be growing/growth spurts are another factor.
yeah a rome label would be an excellent choice but also you should check out the k2 vandal, burton punch and the forum youngblood mini
all good beginner park boards
