Hi Guys!

I need some serious advice: I'm about to decide between two boards, both are year 2002:

Liquid Force picklefork 161 SIN

or

F-One TT 175

WHich to choose?

I want it as a single board and I weigh 89kgs I use a 12.1 F-One Mach1 (which I will soon change to a 15.1)
I would trust more in the strength of the liquid force..
Will I plan much earlier with the F-One Board?

Thanx for the help.

Don't rush in and buy the first or second board you like. There is a magical board waiting for you to discover it. Try everything you can get your feet on then choose. Personnally I like footstrap boards that hold the rail no matter what. I don't like the slide of the wake style boards. Find something that suits how you ride then go buy one. Id rather rent a board tuill I found one I really liked than get one I grew out of fast.

I started on a F-One TT-170. I was ripping in a couple of days. After one month I was ready to go to a Wakestyle board around 140cm
I still have the F-One TT-170 for the light days. I love this board.

I second Royce's opinion.
Royce, what kind of board are you referring to? Skate series?

The Liquid Force pickle fork is a 4 year old design. They should be ashamed to sell those as 2002 models. Buy a newer shape.
