Hi, I've been riding reverse camber for awhile now but thinking of trying back the camber for the snap and pop everyone been talking about. I'm 5'9" 160lbs. I need something for casual carving and playing around mountain and small-medium park features. should I go 153 or 156?
They claim Sintered on the manufacture sticker on the board but this board comes with what they call TNT (extruded) base. They argue TNT is better than sintered but the bottom line is that it dings easily and it's slower than sintered. I had the same board 08-09 season and it was good old sintered base. I'm not looking forward to unstrapping on the flatter spot this spring. It's unfortunate that as the sales go up meterial used degrade. C'mon Mervin! Stick to what have got you here.
Best goggles by far. The lense, field of vision, fit, quality, look,...I've owned tons of goggles over the years and there are alot of good ones out there but these by far are the best quality and bang for your $$$
So I finally got my hand on this board 157cm. bottom line; it wants to rip and go fast. It's truly a total ripper shredstick. Flies off the jumps and stomps like no other. Biggest downfall of this board is the base. It's slow and sluggish and you mostly feel it on the flats when you see all the others are passing you. I don't understand why they use such a cheap base on a high end board like this.
I'm 5'9" 165lbs. I've ridden mostly 156cm and my last board was skate banana. I want a bit more aggressive board and I'm wondering for someone who rides lil bit of everything at whistler 154cm would be ok or should I up the size?
Thanks in advance.
I have a skate banana, TRS and just bought this bad boy. Zero camber is super fun. The flex is PERFECT. I'm 5'9" 165 lbs and I ride the 154cm. It's the lightest board I've ridden and it felt weird being so light. I hit the park and it is a blast. I didn't do any rails cause I didn't detune the edges. you do want to detune the edges cause they're fkin meaty. I took it out the next day on the runs and in the trees, I was really impressed cause it handles everything I throw at it. It's not as fast as my TRS but It's the fastest base I've ever had. Once waxed it doesn't want to stop. I smoked everyone on flat lands. It's definitely one of my favourite boards. GET IT!
