Bataleon Riot Too Advanced For Me?
I'll be headed into my 2nd season this winter, and I was really looking at getting a Bataleon snowboard. I wanted mainly an all mountain freestyle board, with usage maybe once or twice in deep pow. I live on the east coast, so it'll mainly be used on ice, groomers, hardpacked snow.
I wanted to focus on improving my carving as well as riding switch, but at the same time wanted to have a board that was suitable for beginner level park riding as well. I was thinking about getting an evil twin, but just wanted to know if that'll be feasible to use on blue and black runs? I was also thinking about a Riot since it's a bit stiffer than the ET, but I read that it's mainly considered for advance riders. I'm not trying to hit huge booters, maybe some smaller kickers and beginner funboxes and rails.
I think the Riot would be OK, I wouldn't mind the ET as well, but I figure the Riot could be used as more of an all mountain type board. I've never owned a sintered board before, they've all been extruded, so I just wanted to make sure it wont' kill me if i decide to get one, haha.
