My first post here . I am seeking my first board. I´ve been on mountain 3x before in my whole life. I
Bought myself Salomon Symbio size 12 boots, Flow M7 bindings and now am seeking for board. I got an offer for 5150 Vice 166cm. Is this board any good? I am 195lbs, 190cm (6 feet and 4 inches) tall, 24 years old, so no I wont grow anymore.
I live in Europe, Estonia. We have little market for snowboards. Most common brands are Burton, Nitro, Salomon, Ride, Forum.
5150 is a cheap brand. If you want something to learn on, and throw away after a year, it could be a good board for you. If you plan to buy a board to keep for awhile, go with any of the other brands you mentioned (Burton, Nitro, Salomon, Ride, Forum), etc etc
i rode a 5150 for a couple of years. it is a great board in my opinion for cruising the mountain. if its all you can afford than get it.it will get the job done. if you can afford a ride etc. than get that.
I'm gonna assume you meant 6 foot 4 instead of 3 foot 4. lol but yeah 5150 are definitely on the cheaper end. You are light weight enough to be riding a shorter board if it means more options. its really just what you in to. I have a friend who is around 6 foot 4 and 250 pounds but rocks a 156 cm board and loves it.
