First Board! DC PBJ, Burton Custom or Gnu Carbon Credit?
Buying my first board this season after visiting a resort in Australia for 2 days last year and im hooked! Figured i got 2 trips planned already this season so it will be cheaper to just buy my own gear and not have to worry about rentals. Height is 6'2, 95kg and size 13 boots.
At the moment my skill level is beginner, can turn, stop etc and make it to the bottom without crashing on beginner runs. I found it more fun playing around doing 180s on ground, riding switch, small ollies etc and really keen to learn jumps and 180s then progressing from there such as boxes. If i can, find some drops aswell. I would also like to be able to do some more difficult runs/carving down at moderate to fast speed following my mates but not going ballistic speeds as i didn't really find as fun. So really not sure if it's one style or another i want to do.
Been looking at mainly two boards for quite awhile now, the Burton Custom in 162w or the DC PBJ 159w. Thinking the DC is more what i want but will it still be able to handle alright carving at speed. I'm pretty confused and thinking to much as to what i want, having been once and still needing a board to learn and progress on. Any opinions or recommendations on any other boards that might suit what i need better? I also have started looking at the Forum Holy Moly aswell, don't know many besides these.
Thanks for your time and help
