I`m new to the forum and really need your advise
. After riding my last board for almost 10 years (Rossignol Zena from 2003, 153cm) I want to buy a new snowboard. Iīd call myself an intermediate or slightly advanced rider, I mainly ride groomers, but would like to spend more time in the pow during our next mountain holidays (if the conditions are right). I havenīt been to the park yet and have no experience riding obstacles, pipes, etc..
Iīm 5'6'', shoe size US 9 (female) and my weight is approx. 143 pounds (65kg).
My local shop recommended and offered the Roxy XOXO and Gnu B Pro (from the 2013 season) for a good price. I didnīt find much information about the Roxy board, but many positive reviews regarding the Gnu B Pro. So far Iīve only ridden my old camber board, but think Iīll like the hybrid rocker camber technology and (hopefully) Iīll be able to progress on the new board.
So I want to make a decision between XOXO and Gnu B Pro and also need advise on the board size, i.e. should I go for 152/151 or 149?!?
Really appreciate your help and many thanks in advance!!!
