FreeBird wants a Nitro Swindle!
Ok, so i`m the new guy...
I just have like 5 days total on a snowboard, so i`m a total beginner. I kinda feel drawn towards the park already, and have been looking at the Swindle. Is it beginner friendly?

I am 5' 11", and about 160lbs, and wondering wich size I should go for. Feel free to recommend other boards as well.

Thanx in advance for helping me out!

Swindle would be alright. 52 or smaller. I liked the swindle. A lot. The rail killer edge and flat camber are awesome park features to have. I also rode the k2 WWW. Its pretty similar.

Ok, thanks for the reply! Just how soft flex would you say it has? Total noodle, or more like a medium?
Hopefully i get to order it right over x-mas, if i can stick to the budget this year.

Well. Nitro has the haze And the subzero. Which are both softer. And k2 has the playback. I wouldn't say they're medium. But they're not the noodliest.
They'll be fine for controlled speeds. Once you get that need for speed the swindle and WWW get a little chattery

There is definitely no need for speed yet, haha. I have more than enough with trying to make good heel/toe turns, and basic stuff.
