Hey I'm new to the forums and new enough to snowboarding I guess. Was really into it as a kid and only picked it up again last season. After reading through this thread, I'm pretty sure the Goliath is the board for me. I'm just not sure what size to go with. I'm 5'11", 170-175 pounds, size 12 in Burton Moto boots. I was thinking I'd need the 160W but I'd like to know what everyone else thinks?

I should add, most of the riding I'm going to be doing is groomed trails and I'm gonna be getting into the park this season too. I'm planning on a few trips to Vermont to see if I can get some powder but, thats not really my main concern.

Got it. You will want the Airobic 151. This deck can be pressed and buttered all day long at your weight but will have a bit more substance on landings and more pop when you want to blow it up a little.

Thanks Wiredsport!
That was actually the board and size that I was already leaning towards so your suggestion pretty much locks in my decision.

Now I just need to sell my Skate Banana...

Could you tell me where to find a comprehensive review of the Airobic?
I am thinking of buying a second hand 2010 version so I realize it will have changed. A lot or just a little change since the 2010?

I am looking at a 155 I am 170-175lbs and 6ft with a size 11 (reduced footprint tech).

I am assuming it will be sweet for jibbing around the mountain?

thanks.

hey yo! could i get some help with my ET Classic (sorry i know its an '11)?! Just waxed it last night (first time, buddy did it previously) and rode it today...looked like this after waxing/riding last season too. I dont think i'm missing scrapeage? do i need to somehow get more wax into it? it doesnt have a sintered base anyway..doubt it would hold much...any thoughts? do other tbt boards look like this with fresh wax/1 day riding?

Are you wire brushing the base after waxing?

yes. it did not look like this in the morning before snow. this is after about 4 hours of riding man made snow in 45 deg weather.

after i wax, scrape, scotch brite, brush, it looked almost brand new, sharp, fast, naked lookin.

Doesn't that Evil Twin Classic have a extruded base? If so then hot iron wax is useless.

That looks like dirty, bunched wax. When you run the backside of a thumbnail firmly down it does it leave a "clean" line?
