a simple board that works. i ride it all over and its just fun for rails, trails, jumps and, even deep snow. it obviously not a pow machine but i just set my stance back a bit and it was fine. good pop, its soft enough without being a useless noodle and i just have a lot of fun on it. plus it has cool graphics. and no topsheet problems(knock on wood haha. if you just want a fun all around board and dont want to spend a ridiculous amount then definitely consider this board.
i love this beanie. i got it in black and its perfect for wearing around everyday. i also wore it up to killington this past weekend and it stayed put on my noggin like a condom on my other one. overall a nice beanie if you like the style of a folded over beanie but still want a little sag off the top of your head.
you can go with anything that has a ww of 250mm or more. 260 and above is a little extreme depending on your stance. the wider and more ducked out the slimmer board you can ride. i have a size 12 and rode at around 24 inches +18/-18 on a board with 250m waist and it was fine unless i really laid one down. i got a stairmaster 152w at the end of this season and thats at 257mm and there is no catching at all and its way more stable but harder to turn. id say if the ww is between 250mm and 260mm then you will be just fine.
this board is fun for like the first 30 days. it had great pop and fun on rails but then it went downhill. my topsheet peeled back, sidewall is disappearing and i can see core. also it lost all its pop and literally i can only ollie as high as i can lift my knees. for $370,even now at $300, you can get a better board. but if you can wait til it goes down to around $200 then it would be a good deal. espesh since you have another board so you wont ride it everyday. its an amazing board up to the point when it wears out. i loved it until now. hope that helps a little. the everything sucks will be a bit stiffer but more durable
its considered an all terrian killer but is nice and felxible for park tricks, its still going to be stable enough to launch of jumps but you will be abe to get your press on. either look up scott vine in sunday in the park, he is often scene ripping on it or go to stepchildes page and watch simon chamberlin press the snot out of it in his part
you prolly could have gotten away with it at your weight.. but since your 6" 2" you shouldnt have any issue whippin around a 156, if it was a heavier board maybe but there so light that it shouldnt make a difference
uhhh if your asking if youll catch an edge prolly not, is got reverse camber and bronze edges you should be fin there. its just going to be unstable at speeds and you will have to land centered. i hope thats what you asked cause i had a hard time figuring your "question" out
i was thinking about getting this board in a 52w and i was wondering if i would really be to heavy for it. i mainly jib and hit a few small to arguable mid-sized jumps (my hill dosent build much =/ ) i weigh around 160- 165lbs or 73kg
Any board will work for goofy riders or regular riders. Just know what you nose is and what your tail is and set your bindings accordingly. Obviously for you if your goofy right foot binding goes on the nose and left binding on the tail. Directional twin just means that the board has a twin(symmetrical shape) and a directional flex (tail is stiffer than the nose for control, pop, ect.). They also often have setback insets, that just means you will have a longer nose than tail. These boards offer the best of a twin board and directional. They will do good in the park and all over the mountain. And because of the twin shape you will be able to ride switch easier.
the ww on the 59 is 25.1cm. and its based of the darkstar which is a mid flexing board. it will feel slightly softer than that due to the jib rocker. it will definitely be soft enough for jibbing but will have enough rigidness for everything else.
