D's Bio

I am DF vendor, rep for Quiksilver as well as Lib Tech, GNU, (Mervin MFG) and Oneballjay. I am a boardsport enthusiast and use a bunch of out product rather aggressively. I'd love to share my honest opinion about any of our product and my experiences.

Well, the description states that they are 19", but they are actually a 22" inseam, so they will fit a typical, longer length. The shorts tend to fit a little snug around the waste if that's what you're wondering, so buy on the larger size and with this short you'll be set even if you forget your belt because of the waistband adjuster built in!

Cheers!

Sometimes with 4-way stretch boardshorts it feels like you're wearing nothing because the fabric is so sheer. Personally I'm not a fan of that. These boardshorts are pigment printed, which gives the fabric some substance. You still get the stretch and comfort from the Diamond-Dobby tech, but feels more like wearing men's shorts than girl panties. (not that I know what that feels like! XD). Awesome back pocket and a true to fit waist.

At 182 Lbs, I would suggest going with the 156 as the smallest size. The core is profiled to be a little thinner in the smaller size to accommodate that persons spec's. The 153 would be fun, but more susceptible to breaking. Besides, the 156 has BTX (Banana Tech & Magnetraction) which almost makes it like you're cheating when it comes to jibbing!

If you chose the Carbon Credit, I can promise you wont be disappointed! The C.C. has some of the most value in it out of the entire Mervin Mfg. lineup! Some people think its more a beginner board because of the price, but it is so much more. It actually has a sintered base, magnetraction and an all aspen wood core. The board is a great all around board (mid flex & true twin) that is affordable and hand built in the USA by people who love to snowboard! How can you go wrong there?

Cheers!

Yeah, that's the boards starting point. Intermediate to advanced. The C2 is usually geared toward someone who's riding more often and it's a little less forgiving, but may be more responsive. The board is on the stiffer side for women, which correlates with more aggressive riding typically. Gnu also used higher end materials (wood core, fiberglass, base material) than the other models, which someone who puts a lot of days on the hill will appreciate.

If you're still a little concerned, another good suggestion would be the Gnu Women's Park Pickle. That's a perfect intermediate board.

Happy riding!

That depends on your weight. The Banana design is like cheating for doing tail/nose presses, so, I would say it is easier. The flex is meant to be right there in the middle so it can ride all the different types of terrain. Medium soft for park/rails and medium stiff for groomers/pipe/trees/freeride.

Really good all-around kind of snowboard that loves to turn.

The best thing to do is actually measure your head. If not, maybe you know your hat size for New Era.
7 1/4 = Small 7 3/8 = Medium 7 1/2 = Large 7 5/8 = X-large.
That may be a little off, but a nice thin skullcap will help make up the difference without sacrificing the performance.
