Bataleon Questions

Hi, i've been riding Bataleon for 2 years now and i must say, there boards are awesome! This year i'm thinking of getting the Whatever 156 for an all mountain and pow board, and the Disaster 151 for and jib park board. I am about 6 feet tall, weigh 125 lbs, and have a boot size of a 10.

Do you guys think that would be a good combination of boards for me considering my height and weight? i also like my stance about 23.5", Do you think the Whatever's stance will be to small for me? or will it just have better float in the powder with a bit longer tips?( i believe the Whatever's max stance is 22.63")
Any answers will help, Thank you.

I loved the Whatever. You don't need the 156, get the 153. It will float fine at 125lbs and then be more playful around the rest of the mountain. I actually think that 22.63 would be the reference stance. I rode it at 22 and was basically centered on the inserts.

For jib the Disaster is a great choice. I even think It's a midwide so 10's are perfect.


Are you gonna be gaining a butt ton of weight soon? Are you like 15, 16? Or just lanky?

If you expect to gain 20-30lbs before Feb then get the 151 and 156...

I doubt that i will be gaining any weight and, yea im 17 years old and just really lanky. hahaha. I was also wondering if i were to just get the Airobic in like a 154, do you think i could use that for everything? Cause I mainly just shred the park jumps and the main runs at the hill and only hit the backcountry a couple times per season.

Id probably aim for like a 151 ET or Fun.Kink actually over the airobic. You'll get more stability between your feet but maintaining the playfulness in the tips.

The other question i had was, my brother wanted to know if you know anything about the Salomon Salomonder, and if a 148 would fit him alright. ( he is a lil over 6 feet and weighs about 120, and has a boot size of about a 10 or 10.5) he just wants it for jibbin around the mountain and hitting rails.

Thanks

It would... but I'd look elsewhere for some versatility and what-not.

For a goof off slipslidesnowsurfmetalgrinder I'd suggest the Nitro Swindle 152, Signal Park Rocker Light 152, K2 WWW 152, Ride Kink 152, Bataleon Disaster 151, or the Flow Verve 152. Rocker Light and Verve are my top two.
