Did I just make a bad decision?
hey guys.. So I was just at my snowboard shop looking for a new setup.. My budget for the board was about 350 and I noticed that there was a burton hero for exactly that price.. However, the board was a 158, and the people running the shop looked at me like I was crazy to even be considering such a large board. They said I needed a 155. Well the fact of the matter is that I'm only 16 years old and I will probably grow into it. They still thought the idea was preposterous. So given my lack of knowledge, I said ok. They started pulling out other boards. Most of which didn't intruige me nearly as much as the hero. Long story short, I ended up buying a Gnu carbon credit series board. The sales guy had nothing but good to say about the board.. At one point he stated that thr gbu was actually a better board in comparison to the hero. That was the selling point and so I bought the gnu. I started reading reviews on the board I just bought and they are all saying the same thing: BEGINNER BOARD. I certainly do not consider myself a beginner and so I now believe I just got taken for a ride... What do you guys think? A burton hero that is 3cm too big or the gnu I just bought? maybe something different?
