TBT for Beginner

I was just wondering how a beginner/intermediate rider (myself) would handle a Bataleon board. I have heard it is not easy to ride for beginners and it is unstable. Is this true If it matters i am looking in to getting a 149 ET.

I'm not a beginner and I HATED my TBT stick

It all just depends. I personally thought it had the weakest edge hold of any board I've ever been on.

I see absolutely no reason for TBT with all of the amazing shapes of boards on the market these days.

I think TBT would be great for beginners.

I went from struggling on trails to carving black diamonds switch in a single season on my Evil Twin.

Ok wise guy, amazing different camber shapes.

TBT is not a cutting edge camber, but yes it is a unique shape if you want to be like that.
