Even though this board is called a Park Pickel do not let that make you think that this board is only for the park. This board floats in poweder and is carves up the groomers. Also the board is very forgiving, almost impossible to catch and edge on this board.
Just was curious how wide is this board?...
Just was curious how wide is this board? Could I get away with 11.5-12 size (mens) and not worry about dipping my toes/heels into the snow when turning (or landing a little funky)??
Any other suggestions for a sub 158cm park board (east coastin) a for a dude who is 5 foot ten, with gigantic mutant feet?
with you size boot you probably want a wider board. This one in particular is wide and would work. You can also get the Lib Tech Skate Banana in wide as well... Lib Tech/GNU are part of the same company
hey im looking at this board and im wondering...
hey im looking at this board and im wondering how the flex is and how well it will work for jibbing and rails and presses as well as jumps . thanks
Its all in the name "park" this baby was born and bred for smooth presses and long butters.
Park Pickle Dopest Dope i Ever Rode!
Man i took this out to Boreal for opening day yesterday and it killed! Presses were amazing. Banana Traction is awesome! You really need to ride one to know what im saying. Get it quick!
I rode this board for a couple of days in August of 09 at High Cascade in Oregon.
You wouldn't know that it is rockered from the way it holds an edge. I felt I could roll it way over and count on it to keep carving. But, the rocker makes the board spin effortlessly.
The asymmetric sidecut didn't feel odd, it just felt good. You know how usually your toe edge is solid, and the heel edge a little spooky in comparison? Not so the pickle. Both sides feel strong.
I'm going to try riding this as both a park board and as an all-mountain ride this winter. I think it will work that way.
This is based on just two days of summer riding, but other boards didn't feel nearly as solid in the same salted snow.
