This girl needs help choosing
Im in desperate need of some help in choosing a new board. I would rate my abilities as intermediate, am confident on intermediate runs, cautious on advanced runs and can link turns easily. Im looking for a board that will help me grow as I want to start doing some small rails, jumps and boxes but also something that I can speed down the mountain on.
Here are my stats
5"11 (1.79cm) so quite tall for a girl
145 lbs (65kg)
Boot size 9.5 US
Will mainly be riding groomed runs and from the southern hemisphere so it gets rather icy aswell.
After doing some reading on here have found that I have been riding the wrong size board, brought a board off my friend just to see if I liked snowboarding and that was a 149 but I prob need something longer, any reccommendations?
Also because I am so tall would it be beneficial for me to check out some mens boards aswell??
Have had a wee look at some ladies boards and heres a few I liked;
Gnu B-Nice (have never riden a rockered board before so not sure how I would go on this)
Would any of these be suitable for me or are there any others that you would recommend??
Thank you in advance for your help, you rock!!
