Bataleon ET or Airobic?

So I'm 6'3 and 190 pounds now, Should I rather buy Bataleon Evil twin 157 or Airobic 159 ? I have size 11 feet and i don't really jib, mainly jumps and fooling around on mountain.

Definitely the ET. The Airobic is a noodle, so not what you need, especially at your size.

You will probably be ok. I am 6' and about 185-190, wear a size 10.5 boot. I ride a 155 Riot.

What boots are you riding? Some of the newer boots have a substantailly smaller footprint.

I rode an Evil Twin last year, sounds like we ride similar things, I liked the ET, but found it a bit soft for what/where I was riding.

Maybe look into the Goliath or The Jam?

let's not talk about it

When you say "jump", what kind of jumps are you talking about? The ET is also a soft board, nothing like the Airobic, but it is on the softer side.

I would also say ET. If your not jibbing, the airobic's massive flex is going to be very limiting. On the other hand, the riot is relatively stiff - it's super stable and great for booters, but not the easiest to ollie and butter. ET is the best of both worlds.

Alright, luckily there is one Evil twin 157 cm left. I have last years forum kicker slr boots. Last year I tried burton fix and i loved it, but hated the k2 WWW. Maybe is should get a rocker board tho? So my last question would be : What would you guys rather get? Flow Verve 158 cm (-4mm camber) or Bataleon evil twin 157 cm ? The price is pretty much the same around here.

Okay, I am probably going to get Evil twin, hope it won't be too small for me tho. But Forum honeypot sounds cool too, but not better then ET, right?
