I know this is a little off topic, but Leo... that new avatar pic you've got going on is pretty darn cool! I like it alot! What board were you riding at the time??
Thanks! It was during a 2012 Forum Demo weekend and I was on the Holy Moly in that pic. Not my cup of tea lol. Wish I got a shot of me on the Evo as I definitely had more air on that barrel. I should have tried to ollie the sucker, but sadly I chickened out lol. I wasn't comfortable on the Holy Moly setup so I forwent the barrel jumping.
It was shot by the photographer at my work. This was his first real action shot outing. He didn't get a lot though since he wanted to ride with us instead of shooting pictures all weekend
I'm waiting for more pics to be uploaded. He said he got the sequence from this one and that you can see the barrel move lol. Me likey bonkz0rz.
Thank you all for contributing so much to reviewing this board, making my decision to buy it that much easier.
I'm an intermediate rider, but when it comes to equipment and all that new technology stuff, i'm pretty clueless.
I'm 5'10, 180lbs, size 9.5; ride about 50% groomers, 35% terrain park, and 15% half pipe. I focus more on jumps than rails in the terrain.
Can someone recommend me a board size for this board? I'm torn between the Proto CT 155 or 157. I heard this board rides longer than normal, so i'm not really sure.
Secondly, can someone recommend a good pair of bindings to go with this board. For boots, I have the 2011 32 lashed at the moment, and am loving it.
You are my measurements so I would say gun for the 157 especially since you focus more on jumps like me. I would definitely do the 155 if you want to jib. Heck, I'd just go with an Evo if I wanted to jib more.
As for bindings, I love my 390 Boss on them. Since you can't get the board til next year, just get the 2012 Bosses. They have better ladders. Or buy this years and ask for new ladders.
Another good pairing for the CT would be Ride Deltas.
