Why are you going to get a Riot for a race board? If I were using a Bataleon for racing, I'd look at the Enemy - maybe the Jam - and nothing else in their lineup.

ok, but i wont get the enemy cause the grapgics are just the worst, and ill consider the jam, but would the riot be ok for racing?

Who cares about the graphics? The top sheet can have a picture of a steeming pile of dog crap for all I care. If you are buying a board for the graphics, you're buying it for all the wrong reasons.

Enemy is super stiff, freestyle TBT (even less of the base touching the snow than the Riot = faster) & sintered base = fast as hell.

ok, the enemys graphics arent that bad nvm, but i have heard that if you are intermediate, it will be really hard to ride and that is for advanced only, but would it still be good for me?

At 5'3" and 100 pounds, the Enemy is much too big for you. The best bet is probably the Goliath 149. Should be able to get a couple years out of that board before you outgrow it. And even then, you can always keep it around as your jib stick/rock board.

You gotta figure that you are going to grow - maybe a lot - in the next few years. So while it would save you some $$ to get a monster board now, you are going to hate it and you will probably not be able to control it worth crap. Why not spend an extra $250 to ensure you progress/have fun for the next few years, and then when you outgrow the Goliath 149, buy something else.
