I'm 5'8" weigh about 140 lbs on a normal day. I don't have much experience riding (okay close to none) but I'm considering getting a board. A friend suggested 152ish.. Is this a good board for a hopeful beginner and in what size? Also, what's the difference between freeride and freestyle? Is one referring to park and the other all-mtn? Which is which?

Responded on

The clash is a great board to learn on as well as to progress with. Freestyle is made for the park, pipe and things like that. Freeride is more of the all-mountian riding. 152 is a good size. Something that is soft is what you should look for.
