quick question
 
some what new to snowboarding and looking to buy a board. i am 5'9" and 150 lbs. would this board be good for me? also would it be good for plaform grinds? like flat box grinds and also ramps? i wont be going that often since i dont live too close to the snow so the board wont have to take that much abuse. also would this board be good for just regular riding on just straight mountains?

Lamar are cheap bottom of the line boards. They'll work if you snowboard twice a year. If you intend on being slightly more serious than you should opt for capita, never summer, rome, ride, nitro, burton, flow.

If I were you I would get exactly this one Sierra Crew - Snowboards Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

Boards are on sale everywhere, now's the time to buy.

or you can kijiji or craigslist that shit if you want a great deal on good boards.

I'd do that before every buying a Lamar LDT FIREFLY etc..

it says that the 155 is a "wide" board, how wide is it exacally?

fredericp64 02-09-2010 12:05 AM

you mean the 157? cause they don't have a 155 lol.

Just click on specs to see. It doesn't make a huge diff, unless you ride park lots.

i meant the lamar legend board it says its a wide. when i go snowboarding i like to go on the park coursed with jumps and platforms grinding boxes and little quarter pipes. i wish i could buy a better board but im on a limited budget. but would this board hold up with that?

should i just go with the 154 regular?

For that reason exactly, you should not buy a Lamar.

craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums and Kijiji - Post & Search Free Local Classified Ads. will be your best shot

could you recommend me a good park board for $200

I agree I think you should just dole out the extra money for a better brand board...sounds like you want to stick with it. Wide boards are for those with bigger feet to prevent heel/toe drag associated w/ reg sized width boards.
