looking for a lighter board
When I started riding a few years ago, I bought a Rossingol Premier. After a few years of frequent riding I'm starting to think it might not be the board for me. My main problem is how heavy it is. I'm assuming it was designed that way for speed (and it sure does get going), but I think I want something a bit more suited for freestyle cruising, as well as charging the steeps when necessary.
My other problem with the Rossi was I always felt the stance was too wide. I readjusted my bindings in several positions but nothing felt quite right. Is the length of the board the problem here, or is it specific to this board's design? I'm 5' 9 and riding a 156. Should I drop it down for my next board?
