Nice and easy to ride with award winning all terrain freestyle performance. Handmade with premium components and amazingly priced, this board loves the hardpack and ice, glides the jibs and floats the powder effortlessly. The B-Nice, like a close friend, is always up for an adventure.

    Hi Sam,
    I think something in the 147-150 range will be great for you–you’ll be able to maneuver it easily but you’ll get a lot more float and stability.
    The B-Nice is definitely a good option, the BTX (Banana/reverse camber) base contour will allow you to float through powder with ease and the Magne-Traction (wavy edges) will give you a lot better control and edge hold when you’re carving.
    You may also want to check out the Velvet Gnuru, it’s got Magne-Traction and Banana (reverse camber) between the binding inserts, just like the B-Nice, but we also added some mild camber underfoot which will increase stability and give the board a more solid and aggressive feel. You’ll probably find that this board feels better at high speeds and has more power than the B-Nice, so if that’s what you’re looking for in a new board the 147 or 150 will blow your mind!

    Hello! Yes, the 151 sounds like the perfect sized board for a beginning free-rider.
