Board too small?? K2 Darkstar
Happened to stop by a snowboard shop this past weekend and they were having a crazy sale. Picked up a 08 K2 Darkstar 155 cm for over half off.
So here's the question, do you think it will be too small for me?
I'm 5'11" and about 190lbs. I wear a size 10.5 Salomon Dialogue boot and have Burton Custom "L" bindings. I'm fairly experienced and having been boarding for almost 10 years. I have had nothing but big wide boards starting with a 161 Wide Salomon board many years ago to my current ride which is a 159 Wide Burton Cruzer. I really like to Cruzer for just bombing down the mountain but it feels a little clumsy when I pass through the park, take kickers, or just need a little bit more maneuverability.
My plans are to keep the Cruzer for powder days and use the Darkstar for the rest. I usually ride the whole mountain and pass through the park on my way down and am usually looking for natural terrain jumps on the runs. Will I be disappointed?
