Sierra Crew/Team, K2 Podium-Feedback needed for a progressing beginner
This is my first season riding. I currently have an old but in very nice condition Burton Cruzer 160 (knot design and previous rental if that helps) with Burton SI bindings that I bought of eBay to see if I got the feel for the sport. Needless to say I'm hooked and want to look for a nicer setup. I have not taken any classes and have a LOT to learn. Still find myself catching edges and flying, but I believe Iím progressing nicely considering the conditions here in Wisconsin. Not interested in park riding. After some research Iíve decided on three models 159W Sierra Crew, 159 Sierra Team, and 159 or 162 K2 Podium. Feedback on them? Iím close to 6í 180 lbs. 10 boot size. Recommendations on any other models, sizing, and bindings are welcomed and appreciated. When I use the application Burton uses online to recommend boards it gives me high end 161-162 size boards. I find it very difficult to carve on my Cruiser. Why is that? Thanks guys!!
