Back At Er...........10 Years Later
Hey guy's I will be taking up snowboarding again after a 10 year break to start a family & heal a couple busted knees.
I originally started riding when I was 15, I knew nothing about snowboarding & the board shop sold me a 158cm directional, (5150 forget what model) I used it for a year & absolutly hated it, it turned like crap & jumped even worse. The following year I got a Simms 149cm twin & loved that board to death, I used it untill I retired at 22.
I am looking for a good all round board, I will be riding groomed trails making bomb runs & hard turns 50% of the time & catching some air in the park the other 50% of the time, (NO RAILS!).
I would like to stay around 155ish in length (I liked the shorter boards handling) & a true twin because I hated all directional boards I had tried & would be nervous to drop a grand on a board I don't like.
I have looked online & they a ll seem to reccomend a humongeous all mtn directional board & it seems like all the twins are park only pretty much.
I would like a better quality board also, I'm a big guy that goes hard.
Here are my stat's
Weight- 6'1" 250lbs
Boot size- 12
Riding style (do you like to charge steeps? Spin 7's/9's, ride groomers?)-50% groomers, 50% park (NO RAILS)
Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?)-32
budget (if you have one)- no more than $1000
