Advice please - is this board right for me?
Hi all, another "is this the right board for me" thread...sorry to bore you.
I know it's all about the weight, more than the height, but here's what I'm thinking.
I've found a Santa Cruz Fusion TT 157 for a VERY good price online.
Now, I'm 6ft 2" and weight about 215 pounds, size 10 (UK size) feet.
I'm not a great snowboarder, but I enjoy small rails, little jumps and basically messing about...not into flying down the mountain at high speed, but do enjoy long runs so I can weave back and forth and look for little bumps etc.
I currently ride a Nitro Phantom 164 and think it's too big for me, it just feels a bit clumsy to me...always had although it's a good, solid board.
I wear Salomon Savage size 10 boots and am about to buy Burton Custom bindings (my cheap Nitro ones give me real foot pain and I've been advised the Customs are much more comfy).
I know the Santa Cruz Fusion TT isn't the best quality board in the world, but I don't need a top quality board at this stage.
So, it 157 definitely too short for me? What do you all think? I know there's no definite yes or no answer, but what are your opinions?
