5'8" 195-210 lbs min/max. I always float between those numbers.
I have a 12 billy goat and its a great board.
I have two issues
1) I'm feeling I might benefit from a board that is stiffer torsionally
2) I like to buy shit
Want to stick with mervin or Never Summer
I find myself wanting the t rice over the raptor for its true twin shape. Also the raptor is pinning me to a smaller size @ 159, I'm not gonna go 164.
Also going to grab a noodle board for those day 4s with no new snow. Something to practice switch on, presses, butters etc. ride easy and have fun while learning new skills I can transfer over to my new aggressive board.
I've realized that switch is an important skill to acquire. Just one more reason the rice is in the running more so than the raptor.
I don't do park, but want to focus on learning natural jumps, drops, etc.
Am I waisting my time going from a goat to a rice?
