All this and you ended up buying a different board?!
Just joking, the carbon credit is a great beginners board and 159 is a good size. It's not as nice as the TRS, Legacy or Dark Series but it's cheaper, will be a little more forgiving as you learn and is still plenty of board for your skill level (I didn't realize you are kind of a beginner...must have missed that).
You may want a new board it a couple of years, but that's natural even when you buy higher end boards. I bought a board last spring and I'm already drooling over potential new boards. Now you'll just have a legit reason to upgrade when you get the itch for something new
Yea lol I'm a newbie, but I'm glad someone at approves. The main reason I got it was for the price, and the magna traction is nice. I got that with some 2012 flow tech trilogy bindings for 400$ out the door. And thats the same way I see it, a legit excuse to upgrade in a season or two!
