Legacy or SL or Heritage???
Hey there everyone, it's time to buy a new board!
I'm a pretty new rider, only rode 7 times so far, skiied for a few years too.
Anyways, im an intermediate rider I'd say. On my 7th day out did a few small roller jumps and a couple box rails.... I catch on quick.
That said, Im looking at these 3 boards but i have a dilemma!
I'm 6'1 185 pounds and I wear an 11.5 burton ruler boot with that "shrink tech".
Am i good on a regular sized SL with a WW of 253 or do i need to step up to the Legacy (much bigger WW at 264mm)??
Same with heritage I guess, that or the X? Heritage is a little thicker in the wast than the SL (1mm)
I don't really know what type of rider I am, but the rider I want to be is the guy who can have fun on blues, throw some 360's off rollers, a few grabs, bomb some speed. But I also want to step into the world of black diamond and possibly double black diamond.
Right now im riding a rome garage rocker, the first and only black i went down, i couldnt stop to save my life. Planted my board heelside and i just skipped all the way down, almost rag dolled it. So I'd like a board to hit the steeps as well as the trees!
I want to have crazy fun on the blues, but have a good enough board to handle deep pow (live in CO) handle steep terrain, handle trees, etc, etc...
If neither of these boards fit the bill, can ya recommend anything else? Been looking at the gnu riders choice as well, but the WW's on those are funky too. The wide is just HUGE and the regular is small.... same as the SL...
Soooooo thats a long post, any help is GREATLY appreciated!
