Hi to everyone !! I'm about 40 yo and approached last winter this addictive sport ...great. I skated for 10 years and i was pretty good, but it's over now, since it's quite not compatible with a serious job and a family !!! I'm 192 cm and 95 kilos about with 11 of boot, i'd like to do freeride for most of the time and after renting i'd love to buy my first board. I red everything i can, i asked to all the shopkeepers of my town but i got a lot of different suggestions about what is good for a beginner. After all my choice would be a burton custom 163. Is it true that this board will be too difficult ? A Hybrid camber will fit better ? Is it too long ? Finally can you suggest me a board suitable for me ?? Please tell me some precise models, since you have an infinite choice i'd love to have exact examples to think about or i'll get lost in looking for a model with all characters they sugested me. No budget problem. Thanks a lot from an italian lost rider !!!
Powder e' terribilmente addictive...
I have to fight for my powder days...but love each one of them. Go for it.
