im 6'3" sz 13 190lbs ... im on a wide twin 159 for jumps/hardpack/small pow/some park ... i was on a wide setback 164 which was more of a mellow cruiser .... your size is not really a factor, how much do you weigh though? are you going to cruise or will you be spinning, riding in deep stuff or slow jibbing?
you need like a setback 156, if your totally new get an entry level board under $400, goto your local shop and talk to them too, if your trying to buy online and want us to pick it out for you, give us a price range and the type of design you like, and what brands you feel stronger about
hey thanks guys
found a board, went for a 09 burton cruzer 159 twin wide.
got it brand new with burton freestyle bindings for $350 canadian.
not a bad price!
did a load of research into it and found out it was a good beginner to intermediate board. and seeing as im goning to be living on the mountain and boarding most days i thought it wise to get a board that i wont outperform too quickly.
what you guys reakon?
