my height weight ratio makes it a bit harder.

the cheap trick is a park board, but im sitll going to want to do some free riding
how do park boards hold up riding the piste's?
ive never bought a park board before

yea i figured that much
my theory is, i can use my salomon for off piste runs, cause its longer and doesnt have as much flex
keep the cheap trick for piste runs.

FWIW I tried to downsize last winter from 163 to 157 and I couldn't handle the change. the shorter park board that I got was just sooo different than what I had been used to riding that I had to get rid of it after three days on the slopes. But I'm considerably larger than you, about 210 pounds, so that might explain a lot of it. Just something to keep in mind.

yea the big size difference was what i was worried about
i used to rent boards alot beofr ei took snowboarding seriosuly. and it only took me a day or so to get used to the board. so in theory this new board shoudlnt be too bad.
i jsut hope it isnt a shit fight gettin used to the baord each time i change between the 162 salomon and the 155 rome ey
