Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

i'm not familiar with the 'a deck' but the Timeless is a pretty stiff board. However, if your dad has used it a reasonable amount, it might have softened up a bit.

in the early years, the Timeless had a reputation for being unforgiving - unless you pushed it hard all of the time, it was not very easy to ride. In more recent years they claim to have changed it so that it is more forgiving without losing any of the top end performance (if you belief the marketing hype).

I have a Timeless (as do some others here) and i love the board - it has great edge grip and is very stable at speed. It will be a good board to improve upon as long as it does not inhibit you at the beginning. From your post it is not possible to tell how experienced you already are.

My tip would be to concentrate on smoothing out your technique so that your turns are clean and smooth - it is not a board that responds well to messy riding. As a result, the board will force you to improve your technique, which can only be a good thing.

Is the board the right size for you? I am 5'9", weigh 12 stone and use a Timeless 161.

Hope you enjoy it!! (and welcome to Snowheads)
