Currently have rossi taipan-upgrade to yes big city??

Im having problems staying up on the steeps due to the uneven terrain. It feels like the board is too sloppy.

Is the yes big city to similar to the taipan? Was looking at it but not sure if the difference is worth the purchase.



Also it seems both boards are minimum camber and more rocker.

Would I be better off with more camber and less rocker? Of course camber between feet and rocker tip and tail.

Really looking at the Capita BSOD in a 159, but could also go 162 for help in the steeps/trees/speed.

I would go for the Capita BSOD in a 156 or 159 because a 162 is a little bit too big, but definitely get a camber board like the bsod if you are getting a sloppy/washy feeling from your rocker board and you want more stability

THanks.. The ROSSI has the same rocker/camber/rocker profile as the BSOD, but the BSOD is a stiffer board.


I'm open to other suggestions on a board that will compliment my riding goals of steaps, trees, powder, and speed.

If your looking for a stiffer board that's a little bit better with speed a t rice would also be a good one to look at

Yes, I've looked at that and I don't recall why I decided against it.

Would a 165 be too big of a board? I'm 190-195 lbs....

Didn't feel this was enough of an upgrade from my current deck.

I'm looking at Capita BSOD or NS Heritage or have even looked at a Billy Goat <--- HELP!!

Going big with a 165 unless someone can tell me why not to..
