Help Me Choose Please!
I've been boarding for about 2 years and renting the whole time. Hating the rental boards, especially after trying someone's Burton Joystick (it was like butter). Using a decent board made all the difference in the world and now I can't go back.
165-170lbs (that's not me in my avatar! I'm muscular but not a fat bastard!)
This season I bought a pair of Burton Motos (size 9) which I'm happy with.
I ride mostly out east on groomed mountains. No park or freestyle for me and I don't plan on it. I'm looking for a nice cruising board mostly for carving down the mountain. I'll take the occasional bump but that's about it. More about just loving the flow and easy ride. Some speed is good.
It's my first board. Also need bindings. Total budget is under $300. It's a bday gift from my wife but she's letting me pick out the goods.
Was checking out Morrow Clutch based on some reviews/description/price point. Anybody have any thoughts on that board? What about Arbor boards?
So, here's what I need help with:
1) What board should I be considering?
2) What size? Was thinking 158-162 (but maybe 162 is too big for me?)
3) What bindings?
Thanks in advance for the help!
