New from N. Wisconsin
Hey everyone. I live in Amery Wisconsin, and I just got a snowboard for Christmas, after expressing some interest in the idea of it. So I naturally have a few questions. I have tried searching and answered a few of them, but others don't tend to be a simple "yes/no" answer.
I have a Millenium 3 Haze board.
I'm between 6' and 6'1. Roughly 210lbs. I wear a size 12 shoe. And I'm white. (If that means anything, let it know my balance is a bit... lacking, and I can't dance.)
Now. The board I have is a 163W and It just looks large to me. I have seen the sizing chart that my brother got for reference, but it was kinda vague. I'm just curious if this setup will work for me, or if I need to tell my brother we need to reorder. I don't wanna hurt his feelings though, because it was a gift, and I really do love it. It fits my taste perfectly. (I'm a sucker for pin-up style art.)
Any help on that would be perfect.
Also, I have mixed reviews about waxing. I have read that you don't NEED to wax it for a few runs, and I'm told that it is highly recommended. I know that it couldn't hurt. If for nothing more, it protects it a little more. I'm pretty good with DIY projects, but I learn best with hands on demonstration. SO... I doubt I will be waxing myself for a bit at least. Maybe the 3rd or 4th waxing I'll test my hand.
Anyways. Thanks for any and all help. Feel free to flame away. I know how forums are, but I admit, I'm a newb. I have tried searching though, I just want a more specific opinion to my size and what not versus my specific set up.
