Default sierra crew

how's sierra crew as a learning board?

as i'm a beginner, only planning to free ride this season

hopefully get to do some jumps before the end of the season and probably get a park board next season

i was looking at buying ride antic as recommended but this sierra crew board's price is attractive considering the fact that i'm only a beginner


also, how's sierra v spot or burton avenue for a beginner woman? i want to get a board for my partner when i get mine at the sierra site

The Sierra Crew should be a good choice and will likely last you as a freeride board for a while. It's basically a Burton Custom (maybe like a 2008 model?) in different clothing. Price wise it's a great deal and I haven't heard anything bad about it.

I looked at the Sierra V-Spot for a friend of mine (she eventually ended up turning it down due to the blood on the woman's face), but it seems to have a couple of the qualities that a lot of beginner boards have nowadays. It's reverse camber (will help her prevent catching edges) and supposedly pretty flexible. It's also a twin if she ever decides that she wants to go into the park.

I personally like Ride as a brand, but I can understand price being a big factor. I personally would go with a Ride Antic over a Sierra Crew due to brand familiarity, but only if they were the same price.

the burton avenue is a really good board for beginning girls; my friend has it, and she loves how soft and forgiving it is
