Need help buying first board
Hi guys, I'm new to the forum, but I've been riding for few years on my brother's board (Its a SIMS model at least 7 years old).
Anyways, I'm looking to buy my first setup for this upcoming season, and i wanted some advice.
I'm 6 feet tall, weigh about 155-160 (seriously, it varies from month to month) and I would say I'm an intermediate level boarder.
I'm looking for an all mountain freestyle board, which would also be good for a little park action....mainly just jumps (but I would also like to try doing some easy rails this season)
However, my main focus is all-mountain freestyle board.
My budget for my WHOLE setup is around 600-700 canadian dollars.
I've been looking at the Forum Recon board in a 156 size, but I've been reading and I think a 155 size would be better for control for a guy my size and weight.
Can you throw me some suggestions about other 155 boards I could look at, that are in the same price range as the Forum Recon?
Thanks a lot for the help!
Oh, and on a side note, are there any reputable boards that have designs this year that feature comic book/anime/robot characters? haha, i know it sounds nerdy but I've always wanted a board that featured batman, Spiderman, Ironman, anime or transformer characters.
I tried searching google but could only find very few in kids sizes.
