Ride Machete vs K2 Lifelike?
Well, another "help-me-pick-a-deck" thread.. Hi everyone, we're debating over 2 boards with my friend - either Ride Machete 161 or K2 Lifelike 160W for him to get. He's 6", 165 (maybe 170) lb, has a good skiing background but wants to start riding a board this year. So, more to the beginner level. I'm little help for him here cause I'm a female.. perfectly happy with my NS Infinity =)) so I really hope the collective mind here would shed light on the subject.
What he wants to do is mostly ride mountain in a lively style, and definitely not rails or pipe.
And, one more thing, the boots he's got are 11.5 US size (K2 Darko). Will they be OK on a 161 Machete, with 250mm waist?
He's also able to get a K2 Raygun or Ride Wildlife.. just more inclined towards the above 2.
Thank you guys for your help in advance!
