im really unsure of which board to get and...
im really unsure of which board to get and which size. im 5'7 134lbs. i was gunna get a 152, but i looked at the sizing chart and people up to 155lbs are looked at to be on a 148 board. what should i do?
For you a 152 is going to be on the longer side of the spectrum. You could go anywhere from a 148-154 and probably be ok.
A couple things to keep in mind though. The longer the board is the tougher it's going to be to control and manuever. So if you're a beginner you may want to look into something shorter.
A longer board is going to get you higher speeds and will be better in powder.
If you are still growing, like in middle school or high school and think you have a ways to go, then I would say it wouldn't be a bad idea at all to get the 152. Because if it's a little long this year, it'll be perfect for you next year.
Overall, you'll probably be ok in a 152, especially if this is the best deal you can find. The only thing I'd be worried about it is maybe being a tad too long for you. But like I said, if you're still growing, you should be ok for sure.
does this board only come in a 152?
does this board only come in a 152?
Here, yes. It's all they have in stock. But if you're asking if Forum only makes this board in a size 152, then no. They have a variety of sizes for this board.
This is a sick board. The graphics arent the greatest they seem like paper. On mine the first week i had it the front lip ripped up which sucked but other then that this board is dope. Great bend. Works great for rails and is really comfortable to ride.
i think if you need a board to hit up every jibb you want this would be the board you need. all my other boardz have been burtons and they have restricted my ridin ability and i couldnt hit railz because it just felt like rubbing my board on cement or hittin cement. so i think if you want to expand your ridin for jibbin get this board. also it has amazin control on powder!
ok lemme start off with sayin that the graphics are fresh i have the 156 wide and its bright as a mofo....i instruct snowboarding and its kool having somehting colourful so ur kids know where u are
i am about 230 lbs.. im a pretty heavy guy i also have size 12.5 boots so ofcourse i chose the wide board.... i was worried since i love to jib that this board would be wrecked , BUT IT HELD UP i can press out noslides to about stomach height lol without worrying..yes i am also saying this board is buttery .
i do alot of street jibs so i do end up mesing up my base alot from sliding on concrete ledges and pavement roads and sketchy rails lol..and my base is still hlding up...a good base scrape and it will be fine :0...i also enjoy hitting up the mountains runs and this board can keep up, even with detuned edges i dug in to the ice lmao
all in all this is a great board for anyone ... i look forward to the next years model
if you want a board that is just gunna be a weekend ripper and not gunna go thrash it because it doesn't do well on the being thrashed part go ahead and buy it i love it and even though it is broken and falling apart im still riding it haha
156 08/09 young blood
i just like to say first of all this board has been nothing but good to me for the 3 months i have had it but i would also like to say i have unfortunately broke it on the tail it is delaminating on the nose a little bit and i hit a little rock and bent the edge in and had to get it fixed lol but i could not get over the feel of this board after all that its amazing how it handles and feels flex is perfect plenty of pop over all pretty fast so i give it a 3/5 for lack of reliability
can you say b-e-a-utiful
I first want to point out that the graphics on this boards are so tight! The bottom (mine is green) glows so bright on the snow as you carve. I do almost all my riding in the park which means i hit a lot of jibs and rails. What i love about this board is that it has a real hard bottom which makes it really strong against the jibs. I still get scratches on the bottom but nothing like i got on my old board. This board also pops really well and helps me stick my landing. I am very pleased all around with this board!
Write your question here...Hi, im riding...
Write your question here...Hi, im riding a lot of park and street rail so i need a board with no metal edge. What brand, models and price am i looking at ? does the youngblood is one of them ? thanks
If you are anywhere near a mountain, you need edges to be able to turn. If you are strictly street, you could get away with it. The Youngblood is a full wrap edged board.
Board completely fell apart on me. Delaminated from the nose and between bindings on heelside. I will be sending this back. But, it did ride dirty in the park.
i have the 148 and its lagit. one thing i was kinda worried about would be that i weigh around 175 and the 148 is meant for like 155ish riders, so i didnt want to crack this peice. so far were all good through the abuse...try it, you'll like it
Color ways are dooooooope. As long as its not black, the color reflects into the snow and looks like you have neon lights under your board. Good flex, Good pop. Rode the 154 and am awaiting my 155 wide in the mail. For this price anyone looking at this board should jump.
I'm a 5'3 girl, and I'm really interested...
I'm a 5'3 girl, and I'm really interested in this board. My older sister has a men's board, and she said it's fine. I'm a beginner, but planning to keep this board forever.Any suggestions?
If you are planning to ride pretty much exclusively park, this is a great board for a beginner. It's medium flex will be plenty responsive without being too sensitive, making it easy to control. However, without having snowboarded much at all yet, you might find that other areas of the resort draw your attention more than the park. Thankfully, this board is really affordable so ditching it in a few years if you change your style wont be a big deal.
go for it this board is great in many ways and if you get the right size along with the right set of bindings to combo with it then id say your set for the season and many to come.
um i just bought the youngblood and im 5...
um i just bought the youngblood and im 5 ,3 120 pounds i go the mini version 145 i know its perfect fit but im paying for this stuff out of my pocket soi dont want to have to keep buying a new board so do you think i should look at the cheap trick 148 because im looking for a park board soo i just want to know what i should dooo
I'd go with this board if I were you. It's made for the park anyways. And it has a lifetime warranty on it so if anything goes wrong with it, you can send it back.
Get into it
I was privileged to ride this board ton's last season and for sure my favorite park board. Not too loose and not too stiff.
There's a reason this board is so loud,... It's because it can be. This thing is the park dream boat! I rode it in the, some times less then good parks of Utah this last year and even though the conditions were some times less then perfect the board stayed true. It has a tight side cut so it rides smaller then its true size. It's soft enough for a good double kink but hold it's ground on the biggest of park jumps. If your gonna spend some time in the park this year I'd strongly recommend getting to know this Youngblood!
