My names Darren, and I've been away from the sport for way too long. I started back in 88 mainly on the bumps in SE Mich, right after the "decriminalized" it. My first board was a Burton Cruiser, then a Kemper Fantom 162 asym.
School, work, and a knee injury means I've been out of the loop for quite some time. With the help of this forum I really learned a lot about the new equipment. I'm a bigger guy (6'3" 250, and size 13-14 boot) but I think finding the right board for me was easier than I thought, thanks.
I just picked up a Lib Tech Skunk Ape 161 and Ride Delta MVMNT in purple snake. It came down to these and the 390's so I made one concession to style and I like them.
I hope to learn a lot more as I go. Glad to be back.
