    Hello everyone! I am new to the forum!
    I'm italian! I am 32 years old.
    I apologize but I write with google translator! are fond of skiboarding for many years, I have a pair of Salomon mini max but
    I would buy a couple of skiboard!
    -height 174 cm (68.5 inch)
    -weight 65 kg (143 lb)
    I try all-mountain skiboard, I prefer the beaten track, down in the woods, sometimes pownder snow, small jumps!
    I would like to learn to do some rail!

    skiboard which do you recommend?
    camber?
    curvature radius?
    releasable or non-releasable attacks?
    Ski or snowboard boots?
    etc

    I saw the table and numerous discussions but they are very indecisive! here in Italy are not skiboard to renting!

    many thanks to all!

    Welcome to the Forum! Yes, you will see a lot of opinions regarding skiboard recommendations. It is a very personal thing so as they say "it all depends" on whether something will work for a rider or not.

    See the thread "Sticky Icky Icky - Make the Case" - https://www.skiboardsonline.com/foru...ad.php?t=16665.

    There is a lot of great information in there - not just about the Sticky Icky Icky boards, but thoughts on other boards as they relate to the SII and a 2-board quiver. Based on that thread I would suggest you consider:

    --Release bindings - Spruce Pro Sports are good; I used them for a number of years. You can buy here http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/spruce_sport.html or try directly through Spruce at http://www.snoblades.com/store/p15/P...mm_Brakes.html - I am not sure if Spruce ships internationally or not, but you can save some money by buying direct.

    --Boards - Sticky Icky Icky for sure - http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/rvl...ckyicky17.html. I have not ridden these, but the people who provide input in the thread referenced above are all very knowledgeable riders. The guys who love them are not "fanboy" types and tell it like it is. You could ride these for a while in all conditions and see what you think. Seems like the majority of riders agree these perform best if ridden from the setback position. If you needed a set of larger boards for deeper or powder conditions:

    Rockered Condors - http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/rvl8condorRC15.html - great powder boards; ride can be a bit rough on frozen hardpack and need to doing more sliding turns in that condition but that is not their design intent. Spliffs - http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/rvl8spliff16.html - or the grand-daddy of them all Sherpas - http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/sprucesherpa15.html.

    I am sure others will offer advice.

    Welcome to the forum!

    what boards:

    If you are going to be doing all mountain riding, and also plan to do some jumps and rails, I would recommend not getting rockered boards. I would recommend the Revolts (105cm), the DLPs (110cm) or even something like the KTP (101cm)

    These boards will be able to handle any condition you find at the mountain, and they will also provide the support you need for learning jumps and rails.

    Bindings are your personal preference. Releasable bindings will be easier to put on and take off, and they will save your knees if you ever have a bad fall. Non-release bidings are lighter and less bulky.

    I personally like using ski boots because they are very responsive and supportive. Many people enjoy using the soft boot binding because of how comfortable they are.

    I wish you good luck with your purchase, and I am excited to hear your decision.

    Hello! Thanks for the replies!
    Unfortunately, Sticky Icky Icky are not available on www.skiboards.eu nor of www.skiboardsweden.se
    in sweden cost less!
    I would not buy in America because I would pay a lot for customs duties.
    can you tell me other online stores in Europe?
    thank you!

    Slight length differences. And the KTP model is wider

    I have a pair of Spruce 120cm that I'm not using. Bought used from a forum member, rode them for about a week more. Decent condition and they are in France, so no customs to pay. Would sell them without bindings, you would need to find some Spruce Risers separately.

    I'm about your height and weight, but I do no park, so can't comment if they fit everything that you want.

    Take your time to search and compare and let me know if you're interested.

    Some out of stocks on the eu site. Based on what is available there for boards:

    DLPs (110cm): Rvl8 DLP 110cm Skiboards 2014

    EMAN is a board manufacturer out of the Czech Republic - http://emanskiboards.com/eman-pop-massive-104/. They are offering a few 104cm boards. I can't tell any difference in them, even looking at EMAN's website so I think they are the same boards with different graphics. Eman Pop Massive 104cm Skiboards 2016 and Eman HeavyTools 104cm Skiboards 2014. ysb33r on the forum did a review of the Uprise boards, which I think are the same as the current 104 boards. https://www.skiboardsonline.com/foru...highlight=eman. I have not seen him around the forum lately, but he is a very knowledgeable rider.

    The only non-release bindings available, if that is what you want, are

    http://www.snoblades.com/store/p15/P...mm_Brakes.html - I think these are Snowjam bindings based on this review - http://skiboardreview.com/category/b...wjam-bindings/. The reviewer is Roussel on this forum - a very knowledgeable rider. I found this archived page on SBOL: http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/snjm_extreme2.html.

    The only release bindings are direct mounted to the boards, which a lot of people have not had a great experience with, including because it limits the flex of the boards too much.

    The Swedish site has more in stock:

    The Dave Lynam Pros or Revolts (either artwork) are generally considered to be solid all-mountain boards. The KTPs are boards liked my many too, but I would say based on my recall of rider feedback these are maybe not quite as well-rounded all-mountain boards as the DLPs or Revolts since they are a bit shorter and stiffer.

    For non-release bindings, RVL8 Receptors.


    If you want a release binding, suggest check with Spruce to see if you can get their riser/binding set-up in Italy. http://www.snoblades.com/store/p15/P...mm_Brakes.html

    I assume these are from Juri. I have a pair of Emans in my collections. Great carving skiboards. If the minor defect is just art work you're good, but check where the defect is maybe thata the 4x4 fitting are not quite aligned. Mine is like that and worked quite well with the non-release bindings, but took quite a bit of effort to rethread to get a release binding to fit.

    iMO Emans are as good as Revolts.
