What are you looking for? Where will you ride?

If you are truly in socal and plan to only ride there ... get the smallest board you can and have fun.

I will most likely be riding tahoe, Mammoth, but mostly Big Bear.

i havent rode this particular Rome.. however i have rode other Romes, so i have an idea of how they ride. The flat in the middle section will give you stability and the softer flex will allow you to butter/initiate turns easier. the Rocker at the tip and tall will give you float and a little pop. so if your a beginner rider or just looking for a buttery board. yes this board is excellent. if your looking for something more aggressive especially for your size/weight i might recommend a slightly stiffer board in the 4-5 range.

Oh, thank you. I'm not an expert, so thank you. Do you have any boards in min that may fit this 4-5 range. I am a pretty aggressive rider.

Hi Socal,

What type of riding are you doing? The Tour is a very fun board. Flat to 3D at the tip and tail (no hang ups) is great depending on your style.

Please let us know your weight and foot size.

STOKED!

Since you are considering Rome, I would highly suggest the Agent Rocker in 158 Wide. It is an amazing Camber Rocker Camber model that will do exactly what you are looking for and will be there as you advance.



In response to your boot and bindings questions, there are some absurd deals available right now for Rome's current season Targas and 390 Bosses which are arguably the best conventional bindings available. More closeouts on Rome boots will be coming up early next week and those also offer great value on top product.

would it be worthwhile to get that board and then try to pick up a good condition set of bindings off craigslist that would probably come with boots?

Don't buy used boots, bindings ok, but a bad set of boots will ruin your day.

Go to a local shop and try on boots and pick the most comfortable that you can afford.
