Hokay guys. I'm talking to you from southern Connecticut. We are currently in the process of getting a few feet in the next few weeks if all goes right! To "celebrate" the late arrival of snow I want to get a new board.
I was looking at a few boards by Flow, Ride, and Burton, but overall I think I'm going to replace my Palmer P-Line (great board) with.
I am 15 with a size 9 boot and will probably grow out to a 10 in a year or two. I weigh 128 pounds, and I'm 5 foot 8 and growing. The snow surface we have here is usually machine groomed, and Icy enough to make experienced riders eat $HIT. But there is the occasional nor' easter producing mass quantities of powder across southern new england.
2008 Burton ( almost local company actually) Jussi Oksanen 154
here's a pic and a review
Evoke the stoke!
Jussi Oksanen, the pride of Finland, has elevated freestyle to an art form. He always stomps, always smiles, and never settles for less than perfect. Jussi designed his signature board to destroy everything from Alaska to Talma, summit to street rail, and beyond. Strap in and feel like any trick is suddenly possible. For jibbing around, Jussi feels the flow on his 154.
