I'm not great with specific boards (it's difficult enough for me to find my own) but in terms of board shapes and styles:

Definitely get twin tip and set it up even.

I'd forget about the...

First off: They really don't heat up your head as much as you think. I used to ride with just a beanie for that very reason but when I switched to a helmet I found it much better in all conditions....

Not discouraged by the promising comments :wink: I looked at the channel. There's a very early video about the dude losing the gopro and getting it back.

Haha they look like Greaves a knight would wear.

The concept is a bit silly on their own but worn while boarding they could have their uses. Would come in handy for those times when you get off...

Hi,

Sounds like you had a completely normal lesson! I think everybody starts with a particular edge they are comfortable on. For me it was my toe edge. I used to go straight then turn on to my...

'Just a little'. I don't know the angle but it's 1 or 2 'notches' forward (Contact Pros). It doesn't make much difference to carving for me but makes edge transition much more snappy and makes the...

Those edges! It won't be the root of your problem but I'd definitely file that rust off :grin:

A. Don't buy used boots (you might as well hire if you're going to do that).

Does it start chattering a lot at high speed and do you find you skid too easily when you turn? If so, you might be a bit heavy for the board.

Length and recommended weight increase together but...

Stepchild Stereotype? I have the 13/14 version and it's a complete bend-fest and catch free, to the point where I can more or less spin on the spot. Reverse camber.

The 15/16 version is...

I used to have exactly the same, in my right quad (rear leg). It's because I wasn't relaxed at speed and sort of trying to lean back to protect myself. After a few runs leaning on my back leg it...

Decent board but as above, I'd consider going smaller due to your weight.

140lbs is the bottom end for 159 on the size chart so it might be a better choice to go with 156 if you want something a...

3/4 inch is fine. As long as your boots are centred (equal overhang on toes and heels) you shouldn't have issues. You can tell straight away if things aren't right because you'll get excess overhang...

Can't comment on the forces but I've been riding Contact Pros on a noodle this year.

They have a smaller mounting disk so less contact with the board, which seems to allow the foot beds to flex...

Strange to see a 152 is way too big for you. I'm 5'8 and ride a 154 board. That feels pretty spot on. It might be because the Custom is an all mountain board. Park boards tend to be a bit lighter and...
