YES Typo or Burton Custom?

Hi everyone, first time posting...and yes it is one of "those" posts.

I'm a beginner rider and am just looking at a couple used boards, the details:

2010 Burton Custom ICS (Camber) 154cm - $200
2011 YES the Typo (cam/rocker) 156cm - $220

I live in Canada, southern Ontario to be more precise.

5'11" 155 lbs.

My bindings are Burton Cartels (disks), so I'd have to use the retro disks with the Burton board if that makes any difference. Oh I'm 9.5 boot size, so either one should be fine that way.

Thanks for any help or suggestions anyone may have!

I think I'd do the 54 but, I personally like smaller boards. I'm around the same size as you are, down to the boot size lol.

Yeah I'm going to go with the Custom. Just a higher quality board (base, etc). I really like the idea of the hybrid cam/rocker but I agree that the length should be better on the Custom. I was talking to a guy in a shop and he even thought I could go smaller for more playful feel. I'll learn and perhaps I'll expand my collection someday!

Thanks!

I love the feeling of the Camrock on the YES boards. I find it more enjoyable than the custom. Rides like a shorter board, but you still have pop in the nose and tail, and fun in trees and pow (not that you'll see that locally).
