Heritage or SL - This is a Tough Decision?
So here's the basics:
160lbs / 5'11" / Size 10 Boot /
Beginner -> Intermediate
All Mountain (Freestyle 75% / Freeride & Park 25%)
I finally had the opportunity to buy my own board after a couple of years of renting & demoing. I knew I wanted a Never Summer board but I was struggling with choosing the SL or the Heritage. I read a bunch of reviews online as here but unfortunately, they both sound like great boards so it's hard to rule one or the other out.
I ended up buying a Heritage from a local shop earlier this week but accidentally grabbed the Heritage X... Grrr! When I went back they were out of the regular Heritage in the 155. Locally I could only find an SL in 155 so I started doing some more thinking & of course I'm back to square one without a board & not sure which board to get again haha!
I have since located a Heritage in the 155 directly through NS since they're local & was just needing some further recommendations before I pull the trigger on either board in the next few days.
I love just taking playful line down the mountain and catching air of of natural features. I just recently got more interested in doing some tricks & hitting the terrain park (but I'm a total newb in this area). I also usually go up with a bunch of skiers so I make the occasional black diamond runs etc. Thanks in advance!
**EDIT: See Page 4 for tons of sweet pics & the answer to what I choose**
