first freestyle board

hey everyone!

looking at new sticks for this season and i actually want to get a board that can ride park and trails as well. granted, im not going to be hauling ass down any double blacks, im talking blues and long greens, so what do you all think of this

Sierra Stunt Snowboard Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

im 6ft and i jumped on the scale with all my gear on the other day and it was 208lbs.

the 159w is up to 210lbs and the 162w is up to 220lbs.

should i just get the longer one? this is going to be for learning jibs on boxes and rails and whatnots, probably some small kickers, and just cruising trails and buttering around.

thanks everyone! this site has been invaluable! also let me know if you have any other boards to recommend. im a size 12 boot so it'll need to be wide.

the NS Evo-R is a little out of my price range, but the K2 looks like a pretty good ride. im gonna do some more research on her now

yeah dude, word is the parkstar pretty much slays everything.
i'd definitely give it a good consideration over the stunt.

Sierra tried to Sauron the snowboard industry, stay away.

Better options will be the Parkstar, Ride Kink, Nitro Swindle, Rook, Salomon Acid, NS Revolver, CAPiTA Stairmaster, or an Arbor Westmark.

Snowboarding Is...

Not to be a dick, but why would you reccomend a board without ever riding it?

I don't know anything about about the board you mentioned, but out of the two lengths, I'd go for the shorter one.

You're not too heavy for it, as per the guidelines, and if it's for learning to jib, press, butter etc, then the shorter of the two will be that little bit easier, more suitable.

Good luck man!
