My name is Sander from the Netherlands, and I need a new board :P
I am 1.90m long and weigh about 85kg. Bootsize 12.5-13
Started snowboarding three years ago on a rental rossignal 165cm board. Didn't went too well.
After that I went to one of the best boardshops in Holland for my own stuff. They had a allmost new park pickle 159w for a good price in combination with Ride Arsenal bindings.
After boarding on it for two year (two weeks a year) I am getting confident at speeds and steep slopes and never disliked my board. I usually just go down all slopes, small bits off-piste and want to learn to ride switch and jib a little. Not interested in the park yet
Last boarding trip I tried a friends 2012 Signal Omni 159. The Omni gave me more grip and feeling beneath my feet, while the Pickle gives me all grip and feeling between my feet. I gues it is the difference between a rocker and a camber board.
I like the way the Omni feels better than my Pickle. It felt like I carved on it better and could go faster without it beginning to bounce.
I am thinking about buying a new board somewhere this year when the sale begins.
I could by the Signal, but than we have the same board, which I think is a bit weird. And maybe there are even better alternatives..
Anyone has suggestions what could be a good board?
