You make an excellent point jmac.. I shouldn't rule out womens boards because it's labeled "womens".
So long as i find a board that suits me & my needs =)
But now u got me thunking about the park boards.. LOL

13rian Well the k2 is a great board! But feels lik a wet piece of cartboard, great for rail an buters tho.. Iv gt obe for messing around on myself..The intresting thing abuot the www is that u can drop 4-5 cm om ur normel leght and still have the feel of the board ud normly ride.. So if ud get one that is ur size, would ride lik a board 5. M longer but would flexx more an weigh tless

mOnky You don't think a 148 is too big for me? I was side by side to that Custom 148 & it was near the top of my head.
I'm primarily going to be freeriding
jmac, i'll definitely check out the k2 www, any opinions on that board? However, I'm gonna have to pass on the women's board. LOL

jmacphee9 i 148 would be a nice size for more free ride, if you plan on park i would look smaller, its pretty hard to find mens boards in that size range...

k2 www comes in a 145 and 148. jib boards are really your best shot at getting a smaller board, and at your weight im not sure how flexy they would be.

or romes womans boards tend to be graphic wise fairly close to there mens line..

RidePowder well this time of season probably. You were right, Im not a Burton fan on any level, I avoid burton products and burton owned companies products but Id go with the custom n a 144
02-19-2009 05:18 PM
mOnky I'm really not into the 'I love or I hate Burton' hype.. Not saying u r Ride.
I'm going to stick with the sport so I the right deck.. Not just any board.
So I stopped by another store today after work & the guy was telling me to get a Custom 148
Is Burton going to be the only choice I have now? Arrghhh!

Mpagano9 While I'm not impressed with many of burton's products, the custom and custom X are both excellent planks. As Ride pointed out, it's a good board that will allow you to move from beginner through intermediate and into advanced. This or a similar board is a good way to go if you think you'll be persistent with the sport and quickly move out of the learning stages.

RidePowder a little but, Im not a burton fan, but on sierra snowboard you can get a burton clash 144 for 149.98 in 144. its a beginner board so not something youll want to stay on for too long.

or a burton custom in a 144 for 250. considering its a higher end board Id go with that since its a board youll be able to keep longer and use as a progressing rider and not just a beginner. both boards are 50% off at sierra right now and both are in 144. but there is only 1 custom left

Oooook.. I can definitely to that. But my original post was for people to throw some board suggestions up cause I'm having some trouble finding one.. Especially a board that's in the 140 - 144 range.
Also, i stopped by my local board shop & they suggested the Blunt or a Custom..
Isn't the Blunt more of a park/freestyle board??
