Hey guys ive been boarding for around 2years always on rental boards but now i want to get my own. I really need some something to take me to the next level. Im looking for an all moutain board since i hit up groomers, a bit of rails and just general use. Im 6ft 2 with a size 11 - 12 boot and weight around 84kg (182lbs) My spending limit on the board is $450. Can i get a non biased opinion on what to get, thanks heaps for helping out a noob . (All up i plan to spend no more than 750 on the whole set up, so if u got bindings and boots recommendations that would be awesome)
do yourself a favor and research the heck out of it. Enjoy it, sink your teeth into it man. It's what men do! (assuming u a guy ha)
Line it all up, but before you waste any time, keep in mind what waist width you will need minimum for your size clogs. If you going to be sporting size 12's, for sure look into a midwide board or even wide , especially if you plan on carving. Something I didn't find out till after I bought my board. I'm JUST on the border of being ok with a midwide board and size 12 boots.
You will need to look at your weight and boot size when you determine the board you want.
Once you narrow it down, look at the reviews, the price and the style of riding you do and plan on doing and you'll know for sure when the top 2 stick out in your mind and can finally make a purchase.
If you are just looking for someone to buy for you, be sure you take suggestions carefully and look for the boards that will fit your weight and boot size.
