Forum Scallywag: Is it the Right Choice?
I've been looking for a new board since my old one was getting some age on it and had a big gash on the bottom. I've been looking at the forum scallywag and was wondering if anyone could confirm that it would be a good choice for me.
I'm 5'9" 150lbs, wear a size 10 boot, and a 12/-12 stance.
As far as riding goes, i've been working in the park and I tend to lean towards rails/boxes more than jumps, but also enjoy a little bit of buttering/presses just riding around with friends. I still want to be able to ride the whole mountain comfortably since my family skis and don't go in the park... at all. As far as skill level goes i feel comfortable on rails and jumps up to about 35' and can go down black diamonds with ease, but i tend to stay away from moguls. I do not see myself gaining any weight in the near future and want a decent board that i can use for pretty much anything.
My main concerns: Will it be stable at high speeds, yet flexible enough to do butters/presses with some ease? This board seems to be just right when it comes to price range but i want some other opinions on it.
One more important note: My old board was a traditional camber, and this board is rocker, will that make a big difference or is it something i can get used to after a few trips out to the mountain? Thanks in advance!
