I'm 5'11. 190lbs size 11.5 boot and im really interested in getting either this board or the Lib Tech Skate banana. I live in the east coast so i mainly ride around in hard pack or groomed, don't see much powder here. I would say i spend about 70% of my time riding around the mountain looking for jumps and fooling around and only about 30% in the park. Ive only been snowboarding for 2 seasons and im really looking forward to progressing further with my tricks. Which board would you recommend for me? And if i were to get the destroyer, would i be able to get away with a 156W or should i stick to the 158W?
The 158W is your jam. The destroyer has been and still is the board of choice for most of the Forum team. Yes they ride the park but they ride a lot more in the backcountry. This board handles really well no matter where you take it. It will SLAY the east coast for sure. You will not be disappointed.
