I'm 5'11. 190lbs size 11.5 boot and im really interested in getting either this board or the Forum Destroyer Chillydog. 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 skate banana, would i be able to get away with a 156W or should i stick to the 159W?
1. If your feet have stopped growing a regular should be fine considering this board runs wide already and 2 I would go 59 for more freeride and 56 for more park.
If you can ride switch or are planning to, get the banana. If you only go one way, get the TRS (that's like an upgraded banana). They both have magnetraction and are good for the ice coast.
