my girlfriend wants to buy me a new board for my birthday, so i want to keep the price down. im thinking around $200. Right now i have an avalanche prop 155cm. i have bindings and boots and everything, so i only need the board. i am 130lbs, 5'8" ish so i think 155 is good. my 155 feels pretty good now. i have size 12 boots. iv been snowboarding for about 3 years, so im not looking for a top of the line board.
right now im looking at these three boards. (not sure if im aloud to post links on this forum so just let me know and i can take them off)
Like others have said, I would go with the nitro but I would recommend trying to ride the boards you like if possible. Ask freinds if you can try there boards, ask random people if you can swap for a run, etc. You would be suprised at how many people will be ok with this and let you take it for a quick spin as long as your careful.
Morrow and 5150s have never been that great for me. They are a descent beginner board but I feel that for the money, there are some better options out there.
ok, so im going to get one of the nitro target series, but i was just wondering if all of the nitro target series boards are about the same?
also, do you think that a 151 would be too small for me? right now i have a 155. i am about 5'8" and i have size 12 boots. the sizing chart on the house sais 25.5 to 26.5. but all the 151's are 24.6, is that too much of a difference? the 155's are 25 at waist.
so should i just stick with the 155 or could i go to 151?
