what size skate banana is good for me ?
weight: 150 pounds
boot size :10.5
riding style :hm,iced midwest groomers
not quite ready for the park yet.
beginner-intermediate,no medical insurance :-) making laps on the groomers,trying not to fall hard
age:29 hard gainer (weight)
location of riding: Wisconsin(granite peak)
I had bad experience with a hot waxed 157 ltd prodigy (freeride) board this season I rode it ,but it was getting me tired quickly and I think it was too long, too fast and too stiff for me. Stable at higher speed but thank god i wear a helmet ;-)
my right foot is first.I had very hard time turning from heel side to toe side on a steep slope
after riding for a while.I don't know is it me ,or me and that board :-)))
That was the first board that is mine, before it was only rentals,but I'm not really a beginner
I think I just never had a chance to ride the wright board for me
so i sold it !
I am oriented towards buying a lib tech skate banana
WHAT SIZE BANANA ???
the 10.5 burton ruler boots are a bit tide on my toes ,but they say that is how it suppose to be
maybe I'll buy size 11 one day.
"evo" and "dogfunck"said i don't need wide, recommended me lib SB 156/25.5
I'm not agree with them I'm thinking of 152/25.2
(and than there is a 154/25.3)
because i red somewhere that the bananas feel longer
that is why it is better to get 3sm shorter than your regular size
is it true?
PLEASE HELP !
THANKS IN ADVANCE !!!
