burton deuce - difficulties ollieing
I've been riding for almost two years now and I've recently started taking an interest to jumping. The only two snowboards I have ever ridden are the burton ltd/cruzer (resort rental junk) and my own Burton Deuce. I find that its difficult getting any air with the deuce, i dont know if its really due to the stiffness of the board or its because i just plain suck. I've watched many tutorial videos on basic ollieing, but i either dont have the mechanics down or ..well i don't know.
I'm even contemplating buying a new board...been eyeing the NS SL 153 (wish the 151 was in stock and on sale). Is 153 too long? I ideally would like more manueverability, but im afraid my lack of weight may disagree with this board length.
Anyhoo, any additional tips or pointers would be great...
Burton Deuce 152 / Burton Triad Bindings, 5'6" 140lbs, sz 7.5 boot
All mountain, interested in terrain park but i need to grow a set first...
