Hi, i was just wondering what would be a good snowboard for ground tricks? I would also eventually like to learn how to do a backroll (can be seen at the very end of this video
I have looked at the other threads about snowboards for ground tricks but they dont help me too much because of my size.
I am around 5"2' - 5"3', weigh 115-118 (will probably put on a few more pounds by next season
) boot size 7.5, and currently ride a 2011 148 rome garage rocker. This board seems a little stiff to me and hard to press (maybe its because its too big for me, or I dont have proper technique?), and was thinking of getting another board. I was thi king of a rome artifact rocker but I'm unsure of the size. Would 144 or 147 be better? I would still like to be able to use this board for riding a bit of all mountain and being able to do some of the smaller kickers (and ground tricks). Would the artifact rocker be good for this or could you suggest another board?
Also, on the rome website, it says the 144 artifact rocker is for foot size <= 8. But I currently have medium rk30 flux bindings (which fits size 7-9.5), would these bindings still fit with the board?
So, all my questioned summed up here.
1. Is my garage rocker hard to press because of my size or technique?
2. Would the artifact rocker be a good board for what I am looking for? If so, 144 or 147? Or any other suggestions for a board?
3. Would my medium flux bindings fit a 144 artifact rocker?
Thanks, any help is appreciated.
