so i want to get a new board in the sale for park riding, mainly jumps (after a year off due to a cruciate ligament rupture i ve snowboarded 4 weeks this season and managed to do a tailfish shifty in the medium line). I like buttering on the slopes as well as going off piste, but it should be a parkboard, since i consider using my old rome manual (2010) 159 wide board for powdering in case the parkboard doesnt work as well as the manual inthe few pow days i ll probably getting in the Alps.
I weight around 74 kg which is around 163 lbs i think, 6 foot tall, bootsize US 11 (though i think my snowboots are 11,5 for some reason - Salomon F20) and am 19 years old so i won't grow anymore i guess.
I rode a Burton Whammy Bar 155 for one run. Was lots of fun on the piste (360 while "standin"?!
) but didnt have the chance to try it in the park - guess it's not as stable as zero camber boards on jumps ? though the questoin is: will i ever be good enough to really feel the difference ?
so i considered the following boards so far:
Ride Buckwild 156 wide
Lib Tech Skate Banana 156 wide
Bataleon Airobic 156 wide
Nitro T1 156 wide
Any other recommendations or tips on the size of the board ?
Looking forward to your answers, sorry for the bad english and stuff, I m foreign
