Jeesus crust sack up and go look at some boards at the local stores on west 4th. Don't take money or something so you can walk out and think about it. So many deals to be had. Otherwise your probably gonna be talked into something on here that you've never even seen before and may not be that great for your riding, or the local hills you ride.

If you look around here on the forum too long you'll probably just end up with the same deck everyone else on this damn forum rides.... fuck, like I do

Oh well, I tried

PM poutanen for final details soon (like tonight)!
Yeah the Avalanche series are wider than my T7 given the same length, and I run medium Burton bindings at -9/+9 stance angles. They're not a special board shape or a near alpine board or anything, more like a good freeride shape built with top of the line materials to your specs.

Only trouble is they seem to not have much in the range for a 130 lb rider. The small end of the Avalanche FR or FLP series would work, looks like 150 or 156 is it. Depending on what you want to do a 150 might be just right for a 130 lb person...

If you're VERY serious PM me tonight because I'm already trying to get this closed off ASAP. Not trying to be pushy just letting you know. If this doesn't work out I still think a Prior would be a great option.
