Alright its definetly time for a new board...
Alright its definetly time for a new board and ive been looking at the Ride Crush and the Ride Machete or even the JibTech Skate Banana suggestion between the three? Ive also been rockin the same burton 163 for 5 years and ive made the transition to the park and its too stiff and bulky to get real technical so im looking to downsize...im 6'2" about 175-180 would I be alright with a 159 or even a 157?
For sure, I'm the same size and I ride a 159 all over the mountain. Depending on what you're looking to focus on you could ride a 157 but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're getting three different boards for different conditions/riding. Having said that, you can do it- it just might limit you on a powder day.
skate banana - no doubt..one of the most fun boards i've ever ridden AND because of it's reverse banana tech it'll float like crazy in powder which means you actually could downsize to a 157 because you're looking for a park/jib board..plus for those massive pow days you've still got the floaty 163 in your quiver
