I am ready to get a new board.
Mostly I am doing some basic freestyle: jumping, backrolls and will be looking at other old school / hooked tricks.
I am looking at the crazyfly line-up and initially thought about getting a Shox board.
However, a local shop seems to have a deal where the Raptor LTD is very similarly priced to the Shox board which makes me wonder:
Would I be happier with the Raptor LTD board.
Biggest drawback would seem that it is quite a bit stiffer and lets just say my landings are not always that great
However compared to my current board (crazyfly allround) it has channels and a bit of rocker so maybe the difference with my current higher flex board is not that big.
Last but not least: any recommendations about the size?
I was thinking about the 140CM.
I am quite tall (1,9 Meter) which makes me prefer the slightly wider stance but I am not that heavy (between 70 and 75 KG depending on the amount of chips I ate).
Usually I am kiting between 12-20 knots and I am guessing the extra few cm would help on the low wind days.
Hope to get some non sales pitch advise here.
