My First Board
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For being my very first board, I was really stoked with the selection. I'm about 5'9 146, so I went with the 154 because on most of the rental boards that I have tried, this size seemed the most manageable for me in terms of size and potential speed.
Riding the board for the first time took some getting used to because it felt really light and slick, in comparison to the worn out rental boards I was use to. But this only helped getting down the slope faster and the maneuverability. I do notice that the back fin is smaller and I do think it helps my carving a bit. Feels a lot more fluid.
My color (red) board is similar to the Burton TWC Pro board that is also offered. I've gotten a few questions from other riders about it, still have not come across anyone else with the same board, pretty strange.
I'm hoping this board will last me several seasons, it's been great so far.
