Size? Ride Machete 155cm / 190 lbs rider
I went to our local boardshop and bought myself a new board, bindings and boots. My first board was a Elan Eragon 160cm wide with 13US boots. I rode that board for the past 3 years and i wanted something new. I'm starting to get a bit into freestyle / jumping. I landed my first 360's and getting higher jumps every time I ride.
What do I want? A fun/playful board what will do it all and help my push my level on freestyle tricks. But I will also be able to run good speeds on the slope. The guy in the shop seemed like a someone with a lot of knowledge. After an hour or so, he advised me the Machete 155cm (NO wide board) with Union Force bindings and Burton Hail Boots size 10.5 (how can my Nitro's be 13???). As they reduce the footprint by one full size, the footprint will be somewhere near size 9.5 so I don't need a wide board anymore
- Machete 155cm
- Union Force (they would flex better with the board than the default ride bindings)
- 190 lbs / 6.1 feet rider
Question? I'm really happy with it, but when i look on the net, my board seems really small? Especially when I look at the Ride website. Will I be good with this board?
