153cm regular camber ok for me @ 5'9" and 180lb?
I'm 5'9" and have recently cut my weight down from 200 to just over 180lb. Yes, muscle - not fat!
I mainly ride a 159cm RC board by Endeavor; and also have a 161cm stiff cambered board I recently picked up for charging (haven't had much chance to ride it yet).
I regularly hit the park at my indoor snowdome in preparation for the coming season, mainly to work on jumps. Just booked trip #1 with a crew of new friends who, I understand, are pretty advanced - should be good!
I enjoy my 159RC a lot, but noticed most of the guys there riding much smaller boards. I asked around and they said that - even at my weight - they'd recommend low-mid 150s; and that camber is the choice for guys serious about 'pop' and control.
Whilst I'm pleased with progress, I'm keen to try a smaller board just for messing around on-piste with increased manoeuvrability. With the two boards I have already, a small cambered board seems like it could complete my quiver.
I've found somewhere with a couple of Endeavor Lives in regular camber at a great price - one at 153cm and on at 156cm.
I'd like to go for the 153cm (as it will be a real contrast to 159cm) and stick my Union Force bindings on.. You reckon it can take me?
