im-a-male asked: Hey i know the stingray hasnt came out yet but i know you ride that and i know you have also road the eden sparrow. I'm like 5'9 and i have like a size 9.5 foot. what would you say is better. i want to get one of them and use it as a like faster freeride setup. and i know the stingray hasnt came out i was just wondering for future reference for when i get the money.
The Eden has a big more taper and is a little narrower in the back, so it depends on what your preference is width-wise. Also, the Eden is more DH-oriented than the Stingray. That being said, both will do well at downhilling and freeriding, and I’ve done a solid amount of each on both boards. I love the raised wheel wells on the Stingray, as they allow me to feel really locked in. I’d recommend trying them both out first - it’s a tough choice. If I had to pick one, I’d go with the kicktail stingray cause you can do everything on it! -MG
