I have a North Nugget that I use now in 1-2 feet and as a LW board.
I run boards with straps and I' m looking for another board (all around) for the 2-5 feet range.
As my first option I was thinking on buy a North whip 5'6"x18 1/4"x2.16"
(the local Dist. have in stock only the Whip 5'8"x18 3/4")
As second option I was thinking in a Firewire hellfire 5'6"x19"x2.18" that have the advantage
of set up as thruster or quad
but came with no straps or pads (and no bag)
The problem is that I can't demo any of the 5'6" boards.
From the first hand I don't consider any 5'4" or 5'5" like the Whip or Global
Because I think they would be to short.
I can demo a 5'8" Whip. But the 5'8" is the biggest Whip so I think that probably
would fit better bigger and heavier riders than me. I don't know if I'm wrong.
This weekend I receive and offer on the 2012 Axon 5'8" and the global 5'10" that I can save good money. But I don't want to save money and buy a board that don't work for me.
By otherhand I know that I would not find the "perfect" board from the first try, that this is a curve of progression, adapt and learn. That is the reason that I was considering the global 5'10" I hear a lot of good feedback from that board..........
