First Board

Hey guys,

I've been debating which board should be my first.
I am an intermediate rider who is 5'11 and 125 lbs and would like a good all around board that would be easy to get from heel to toe (turn,carve) and also be able to go fast, and jump. I haven't tried park yet, but plan too. I am glued to lib tech, so i would prefer suggestions from their line.

Thank you in advance

Edit: Oh and i have size 10 feet

At your weight a trs slim would work great for you depending on your foot size. Very easy turn initiation, and great for all mountain.

I am very confused on how you could be 5'11 and 125lbs. I am 5'10 165 and couldn't even imagine what I would look like under 155.

Edit--
Sorry just noticed your foot size. It will be easier for you to fit on the 154 than the slims.

Are you planning on gaining weight? 154 could work for your weight but could be hard to learn on in the park.

Travis rice 153 could work, but will be stiffer than the attack banana and trs. Will probably be easier to get on edge with the other two since I believe they both have a little more rocker than the T.rice. The problem with the T.rice is that you will have issues learning park with it, an attack banana 153 would probably be better for that.

Ahh, but i heard the T rice was sinistered base, where as the attack banana and TRS are extruded. What are the differences between Sinistered and Extruded TnT?

Dont' worry about that. The base is like #10 on the list of things you should worry about. Good to have, not necessary.
