2012 T.Rice Pro 153cm

Sup guys if you are looking for a board that can shred everything that the mountain offers pick up this deck and you will be more than pleased. I picked up this deck last year coming from the Skate Banana which is a great park board great for jibs and mostly rockered. With this board you get like it says a Rocker-Camber combo and it is amazing that camber makes a huge difference. The camber added into the deck makes the board super stable at high speeds and charge hard. I straightlined by my friends that were on other brands its sintered base is very fast. Incase you are looking at the flex seeing on here it says 7 and your worried its too stiff. For the board sizes it goes for the 150cm = 5 flex, 153cm = 6 flex, 157cm = 7 flex. Think I might try out the 150cm since they offer that this year and see if i can press that board better on rails This board is the definition of your top quiver killer deck.

I use it with 2012 Union Contact Pros. Also if you like this deck the brother deck to this is the GNU Riders Choice. IF you got any questions about this deck feel free to ask

whats your height weight im 155-163 5ft 8 and leaning towards the 153. im beginner/intermediate but think ill handle the deck and learn on it.noticed it has an ample effective edge for a 153 and also the softer flex may favor my lack of experience. Hope im making the right choice vs the attack banana i appreciate any advise fellow rippers

to Joe Shmo yes they are basically the same board. they are brothers basically one is GNU the other LIB both made by Mervin Mfg.

to ipg100899168 I stand just over 5ft 10 and vary from 155-165(stupid metabolism) I currently ride the 153. Like I was saying I even want to see how the smaller deck at 150 would do. For you being beginner/intermediate I tend to stick people in that category on a shorter deck. I have been selling boards for 2 years and been a rental tech and tuner for 2 years as well(so you know my knowledge).

Hope i Helped you both out. Happy Shredding!

Spencer, how much do you weight? I'm 5'9" and weigh about 180. Would you recommend the 153 or 157 for all mountain freestyle?
