Hello Boarding Enthusiasts.
I will be purchasing my first board - second hand. The board choices are listed in the title and all of them are in very good condition.
I've been boarding for 5 years using rentals or friends boards and then went on a 8 year hiatus. Recently, came back to the sport and consider myself an intermediate rider looking for an all mountain/freestyle board. Mostly, boarding on the east coast Tremblant, Blue Mt., Horseshoe and have been out a dozen times so far, enjoying the speed and carving.
My friends don't believe me when I tell them I haven't boarded in 8 years because I can straight board some black runs at Blue Mt. and Horseshoe and straight board the blues at Tremblant. They say I'm advanced but I consider myself an intermediate due to the lack of experience. However, I will be going twice a week this season at the hills in Ontario and planned 2 more weekend trips to Tremblant.
I weigh 185 lbs, stand 6 feet tall, and have a size 11 boot.
'11 Ride Society UL (160)- I'm afraid this board is too aggressive for me but for the price it seems like a deal I shouldn't pass up.
'10 Danny Kass BTX (not sure of size yet) - never rode on a rocker before so I don't know what to expect.
