First off, super website you have here, really learned alot reading about tons of stuff here
I have a descision to make over two boards wich i might pick up soon for my upcoming trip. The reason I have limited to these is because the shop i want to buy from hasn't got much options left and these boards have always caught my attention. Off course other options are welcome if i dicide to order online instead.
Here are my stats;
I am 6 ft (184 cm) and 145 pounds (65 kg); yes i am a lightweight for my length
Bootsize US 8,5
I am from the Netherlands, wicht is flat, so i go to france to go snowboarding every year for around two weeks. Also i do some indoor. I have got some experience, can ride about anywhere but nothing to fancy yet. Now I want to add some fun to my riding with tricks 'n spins 'n jibs 'n stuff.
So I am looking for a board that's fun to ride and let me take an obstacle if i see one. But I don't want to give in too much on my usual riding. The riding i usually do is going along side the piste in pow if there is any and try to find creative lines. Fast is nice, but gets boring after a while. So i like to make little jumps that hopefully one day will grow to be become killer big airs with crazy grabs and dazzling spins..(may have exaggerated)
I heard/read a rocker board is good for spinning and tricks. And that some also benefit in the powder. Now i would like a board that does both. Therefore my question, are these options suitable and are there noticable diffrences?
I was thingking of getting the parkstar in 155 or the substance in 156.
Any answer would be appreciated, tnx in advance.
