Picking up a Machete..
What up guys, first post here.. So i'm picking up a new board and bindings as my xmas present. I Live in the bay area and have a place in north shore tahoe, been boarding since 13 only going up 2-3 times a year, i'm 20 now and have some free time this year so i'm trying to get up there 15-20 times this season and start working on my freestyle. These past 2 years until now i've been bombing it down the mountain and carving on my brothers 154 custom x. i love that board.. its really the only thing i've used besides my first board, ashitty old saloman .. i just started doing my board research and learning the differences in camber and vrocker..etc
I'm just getting into the park, working in the progression and just nailing the small boxes and rails, jumps.. I really want to work on getting better this season. So I decided to go for a vrocker, either the Machete or the Custom X Flying V with cartel est.. I'm 5'9", 155 lbs plus gear. I just want a good all around - park dominant board that i can hit up the park and still bomb down with. I'm leaning towards the Machete.- Should i go with 152 or 155? For the bindings i was looking at either the SPI's with the 3.0 footbeds or the Contrabands with 2.5 footbeds.- Does the size really make a difference in footbeds?? What do you guys think??
