I've been riding for about 20yrs now, 10 yrs skiing and 10 yrs snowboarding
Everytime 6 days a season. Too bad I don't live near a sweet mountain!
This winter I crashed (with) my Nitro magnum board, so I need a new toy...
I'm 6"43', 176lb, 26y and 10.5-11 shoe size, ride switch regularly, do big airs with 180's (didn't nail that 360° just yet, grmbl!), boarder crosses, but mostly ride fast/aggressively on groomers and some powder.
These boards are the one I'm doubting about
- Ride Machete ( / High Life)
- Billy Goat (love the graphics! But it is more freeride oriented)
Would the billy goat suit my needs? Not sure it's wide enough too for a 10,5-11 boot size.
Thanks for the help, my quest for a new board is driving my wifey insane
PS: A shop also advised the Bataleon Jam, but I didn't like (from what I've read) that you didn't have 100% pressure on the snow when going fast. You don't have to choose an edge, although I like to choose an edge
A Burton falls off too, since I have old burton bindings I'd like to reuse :-)
