trampa 35 short vs long

Post by sc308 » Fri Sep 13, 2013 7:49 pm

Hello, Im new to mountainboarding and was wondering which board to buy. Im 14yrs. old, 5'5, and 125lbs. Im not sure whether to get a 14ply 35 short board or 15ply 35 long board. What do you recommend?

Definitely short for your size and weight

If I were to get the long, how long would it take me to grow into it?

ahhh good point, for your current weight i agree the short is more appropriate but your completely right to ask, id say as little as a year, maybe two. at your age a growth spurt is eminent

So do you think that I should just get the 35 long and just grow into it?

im assuming your parents are paying? if so and you think it might be hard to get them to fork out again in future....then yeah i would seriously consider it. though it will slow your progression rate to start with as a result, but its not the end of the world.

I hope my parents would help me with some of it. But I'll be the one paying for the majority of it. Buy how big is the difference in the distance from one binding to the other on the boards?

good question. someone here might be more informed than me but i think the foot placement doesn't change its only the tips that are longer (affecting rotation and weight)

Buy a long, drill an extra set of truck holes nearer to the bindings. There you go, you have the option of a short an long deck in one board!
