Do I really need a wide board?
For Christmas I got the 2011 Union Forces and a pair of DC Scout Boa boots in size 11. Now I just need to get a board...
I'm looking to spend under $400 but can borrow up to $100 if I need to.
I'm 5'11" and weigh ≈ 140lbs with causal clothes on. My skill level up would say is beginner to intermediate and I'm looking for an all-mountain/freestyle board. I want to be able to have enough stability for the slopes but would also like to be able to hit some boxes, kickers, and maybe some rails.
I used my friends old Soloman board that was a standard width 156 and hates that board. It felt way too big and I had trouble getting from edge to edge and I feel I could do better if I had a board more suited to me.
So do I need a wide board and what would you recommend?
