I already have a park board - Bataleon Evil Twin and I love it. It's a 147 and I rode it through some crazy chop yesterday and was surprised at how well it handled given it's length. I'd probably attribute it more to my riding ability, but the board really held up nonetheless. My back leg was burning so bad, it felt like how water was being released in my thigh- not just the typical lactic acid buildup
I'm pretty well versed in boards but I would love some suggestions from some seasoned riders.
Style: All mountain freestyle
Boot size: 9
Stance width 19-21
Stance angles: +15/-15
I want stability for carving, but decent flex, and a somewhat damp ride. I weigh next to nothing so noodly boards to most aren't noodly to me
I'd like pop as well. I'd like to hit natural features (the mountain is my park type of thing) and some jumps in the terrain park. Steps as well. A plus would be if it killed it in pow. I'd also like to be able to ride switch without issue. It's a board I want to take to bigger mountains and have a good time with but not be limited by what it can do. So that might change the board you suggest as well.
My current "all mountain" board is a Bataleon Goliath, but it's too short IMO (149cm). I would like suggestions for board length given my stats as well.
A ski shop guy sold me my first board (Burton Custom 157) and I weighed about 115lbs at the time and the stance was way wider than it should have been. It made progression really hard and I never understood why till years later when I started doing research. But I learned on a long board. 157 is def too long, but 149 is too short so weigh in if you feel you have a good opinion.
