I need some suggestions about which board/bindings to get – need help as I am planning to buy over the net… I am in Australia and there isn’t a whole heap of choice here.
I am a beginner/Intermediate… free rider
Weight – about 200lbs
Height – about 5.10
Foot – 10
Need a good all round board which handles all comers – ice, groomers, powder… and offers good progression to get me to the next level.
Rode a Ride - Decade 160 on my most recent trip which I borrowed and had to return which was a pity cos I really liked it
So I need a replacement.. .
I understand that Ride have replaced the Decade with the “Prophet” which is one I am considering but want to hear any thoughts on equivalent or similar boards
So Boards I am looking at are;
Ride – Prophet
Ride – Decade (?) go with what you know assuming I can find some run outs..
Arbour – Element
Arbour – Crossbow
K2 – Zeppelin
Salomon – Pulse
Burton – Custom … bit wary of the custom cos it seems every man and his dog has one in my neck of the woods …
Am I on the right track here – are these all ‘similar’? and are there any others I should look at?
Any suggestions on bindings would be good – wasn’t crazy about the Ride bindings on said decade – too heavy and hard to get into.
