Default Comments on the Ride Havoc 156

Was wondering if anyone had any comments on the Havoc 156. After talking to the salesman at my local shop, that's the board I landed on. I'm about 5'9, 125-130 (he said it would feel a little stiff) boot size is a 10, and I've been riding for about 4 years now. I mostly freeride but I do enjoy hitting small jumps and easy rails occasionally. I searched but didn't see a thread about the board, so feel free to comment on your experiences with it and if you think it will be alright for me.

True lol, sorry. Guess I'm used to forums that move faster (not dissing these forums, just used to music/video game forums). I'll try to be more patient, just anxious to make sure what I'm getting is gonna be good for me, ya know? Finally getting my own stuff and getting more serious about the sport so I'm doing my research and its a little overwhelming with all the stance angles, waxing, making sure the boots fit perfectly, etc.

I have the exact same one. its GREAT for freeriding but when it comes to park riding...its not so great. i've ridden this one for 2 seasons and i am ready to get a new one like Rome Agent 151.

I'm not a big park rider (yet) except for the easy rail here or there and small jumps. I assume there won't be any problems with the board if those are the only park aspects I stick to?

put it this way...on this board last season i would bomb it down single diamond runs on my edge with minimal speed checking and it handled real well. no chattering just a stiff ride that is why i dont like it. I live in southern california and our local mountain is big bear which is a famous park. So i need a more all around board.

I used to ride the decade which is the step up from the Havoc and I'll agree with what iliketogofast is saying about the board. It's an all mountain board and ride generally makes their ATV boards stiffer so they handle the speed and turns better than the jumps and rails. Put it like this unless you are going to live in the park and be doing jibs 90% of your day you made a pretty good choice. When you progress your skills to more park oriented stuff then you may want to with something a little softer... The guy at the shop fit you right based on what you say you do
