Hey I'm 6' 1" weigh 175lbs and have a size 14 boot.. This is my first time buyin a snowboard. Which length would you recommend?
Well I guess the better question would be, what do you mainly ride? If you are just starting out, then you prob just ride runs rather than park. With reverse cambered boards it allows you to technically ride up to 5cm shorter than a traditional cambered board. Unfortunately this one doesnot have reverse camber, but you are able to get one in wide. I personally wouldnt, because that would put me on a 149, and that would be sketchy :s lol. But for you I would for something around a 155 or 156 if you just wanna take it everywhere. Or maybe a 158 if you do mainly bk, groomers, or just rippin. Im 6' 165lbs , size 12's, and I ride a Rome Machine 154W with L/XL Union Contacts. Suits me in the park, steeps, groomers, and everything inbetween. Some people find it easier to ride a longer deck to begin with and then progress to a shorter one. Also because your feet are big, you need a good sized waist width. Luckily this deck should be just fine for you, but you wanna keep in mind that you will need a waist width of ATLEAST 262mm(26.2cm) or close to it. Shorter for the park, longer for everything else. Hope this helps brotha
Hey ive bought a ride dh two and have...
Hey ive bought a ride dh two and have broken two in one season with hardly any riding and i want to know if this board is reliable and will be alright to do forward flips and backflips because the Dh ride snaped when trying forward flips and do you get a warranty with this board ?
Thats so weird, especially having slime walls you would figure it would dampen and flex a lot better than that. But to answer your question, yes the WWW is built solid. I loved it when I demoed it and am prob gonna get one for this season. Nice and light, very responsive, and the flex is like a 2/5. I would def reccomend it for sure. And it has a 1yr warranty, but I dont know if its a 'no questions asked' warranty. Hope this helps brotha
In the past few seasons I have broken two dh's one dh2 and two k2 weapons. I started the season last year on a brand new weapon in october riding boreal and had to send it back in february, because it was broken and delammed. Warranteed it got my new one in March and by the end of April it needed to be sent back again because it delammed. Go Lib tech or Gnu. Chinese boards suck.
just so you know unless you have a massive foot and i mean massive you dont need a wide i have a size 13 boot (burton so they are like moon boots, freakin monsters) and i rode a 152 www and had no problem with toe drag. the bindings were set up at about 23 for the front and 17 in the back. unless you just want a super wide board then i would say stick with the www. but thats just me. also this is one of the best boards i have ridden im on a rome headroom right now but next season im going for the www rocker im also 6'5" and about 180Lbs. and i can hold my own any where i go
I'm thinking of buying this board...
I'm thinking of buying this board but don't know if I need the wide or if i can get away with the regular board? I have a size 11 DC Siloh's with Ride LX bindings. I ride at 15 degree's on both feet and weigh about 160 LBS and am about 6 feet tall. I'd like to buy the 153. Do I really need the wide?
waist on the 156 here is the same as my NS Legacy. I ride 0/0 stance and have practically no toe overhang. With 15/-15 you'll definitely be OK on the wide. If the regular width is only 1cm or so narrower, you could get away with that, too.
I've have never owned a wide board but...
I've have never owned a wide board but thinking about buying this one in particular, because it's wide will it turn the same as a non-wide board and will it be a bit heavier and by a lot or a little?
it really depends on how large your feet are and the degrees of your binding, but in general because the waist width is more (the length from side to side) it will take a bit more time to turn, but nothing you should feel if your feet are actually big enough to need a wide board..and it will be barely heavier - like a wide board is like maybe a centimeter thicker at the waist so it shouldn't be much heavier at all..
wide model is going to be a little harder to steer but you'll get used to it. It will be faster than the regular width, too. Unless you have bigger than size 11s - or if you're heavier than average - you probably can use the regular width board.
