I'm after a bit of advice for buying a new board please
I currently ride a DC PBJ 153 2010(2009?) (the Bittner Pro roadkill/regular camber one) and have been looking at a couple of new boards that I have read up on and appear to be pretty well received. After starting (trying
) to ride the park this last winter it is definitely the area I am keen to focus more on going forwards, almost exclusively really. From the large rollers, small kickers and boxes I've been hitting, I hope to progress on to trying rails and larger kickers in the future and would only realistically get around 10 or so days on the snow a year with the rest spent on the indoor slopes. I'm around 10.5-11 stone, so about 150lbs and, guess not that it really matters, but about 5'11" ish.
With that in mind, which would you recommend out of the Arbor Draft or Salomon Drift Rocker. I am quite keen to try a reverse camber/rocker board and am also open to hearing other suggestions around these boards too, so please feel free to put other suitable boards forward in to the mix
Trying to keep costs down a little and looking at possibly picking up a previous seasons board, but happy to spend up if needed
For some funny reason, I'm always able to justify the additional spend to myself
I'm hearing good things on the Arbor Blacklist and Westmark, but knowing the Blacklist is new and therefore no previous seasons to snap up and I'm not sure if it goes short enough too? Also I don't fully understand the difference between the two
and thought that perhaps the Draft may be a little more suitable due to being softer(?) but again, advice welcome please!
Shout up if there is any more info I need to give
Thanks in advance!
