Gear Question

Ive been riding now for about 12 years now...

Posted on

Ive been riding now for about 12 years now and im currently riding a 156w forum grudge and im gonna needa new board soon. I was wondering if the 158w would be a good replacement for the grudge i have now. I do all mountain riding, big jumps and the occasional jib here and there. but mostly large jumps at high speeds. what board woulud suit my needs best ?

The Riders choice is the board that is developed by the team riders to best suit their needs, IE high speeds and big jumps. This board has a medium flex that makes it suitable for jibing and fun riding, but it also has C2 to give it the stiffness at the tips and tails needed for the bigger stuff.
The only thing to watch out for is if you're on a 156 now, maybe size down rather than up. Again, that depends on your weight and height and if you're focusing more on big/fast/backcountry now.
