Will riding 'Fakie' be hard / a problem with a board like the Antic?


No problems here. Almost all boards made now are bi-directional, meaning the nose is shaped the same as the tail so it can be ridden fakie or regular. You should have no problem riding switch on this board just make sure you practice. Have fun!

What size board would a 5' 6" woman need?


hi! i'm around 5' 6" too and a 147/8 is a good size for me to start off with. it depends on your skill level and type of board. i'm assuming from your question you are a beginner so a shorter board would be better suited because they are easier to manouver, initiate turns on and learn all the basics.

as for the type of the board, freestyle boards, generally a twin tip and can be ridden switch, are typically bought smaller because they are easier to do trick on for the reason abover. freeride or all mountain boards, directional and meant to be ridden one way down the slope, are typically longer as they are usually for just riding down the slopes.
there are also combinations of both types but they are more for the intermediate up boarders
also consider the flex of a board. the softer, the easier to learn on [a bit off topic but useful to know if you already didn't]

but in general, a board that your feet won't hang over the egde too far [causing the dredded toe drag] and is between your chin and nose [again, varing from closer to one or the other from the type of board]
hope that helps :D i am also a beginner and a 147 is on the shorter side for me, just being easier to learn on. a 150 would be a good medium once i progress

Tony hawk ride for wii-the board won't connect.


IT TOOK 1.5 HOURS TO SYNC UP AND CALIBRATE A NEW TONY HAWK RIDE SKATE BOARD WITH A Wii.
THE ON-LINE DIRECTIONS AND TROUBLESHOOTING = SUX!.

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS IF YOUR HAVING THE SAME ISSUE:
1) Remove skateboard battery's for 1 minute
2) Reinstall 4 new/fully charged AA Battery's in the Tony Hawk RIDE Skateboard.
3) Plug the Tony Hawk Wireless USB Dongle into the "upper" WII USB Port,
Turn on the WII,
Insert the Tony Hawk Ride game disk
Keep pressing A on the WII Controller till you get to the Error Screen saying:
*Unable to SYNC up the skateboard with the WII*
4) Make sure the WII and the plugged in wireless USB Dongle are laying on the floor in front of the wireless skateboard "sideways" with the wireless dongle towards the right side of the WII.
5) The directions state to 1st press the wireless USB dongle reset/Sync button, then the so called Start button on the board, which did not work 100 different times.
6) Instead (on the side of the board) all 4 of the blue LED lights were on. Now press and hold the button which is the Start/Home/blue little house/C- looking Button on the side of the board for 5 seconds. The Blue LED lights should now all be off!
7) Now press the WII Wireless USB Dongle reset/Sync button.
8) After the Dongle sync

Do the ride viper contrabands fit on the new burton boards using the channel system or the retro fit system for the new burton boards


They wont fit directly as Ride bindings are made of very lite metal and need all four screws to stay secure. The best idea is to buy the matching Burton binding or avoid the channel system and stick with 4 x 4 brands

Length of board


It's more about personal preference. I'm 5'8" and weigh 155. I ride a 155 burton blunt and 147 ride kink. For days with powder I like the longer board and for packed powder days and park days I love the 147. There's no one size that's right or wrong. If you like doing tricks a smaller board may make it easier if you like crusing a longer board makes sense. The longer the board the faster you'll go. The Palmer Prodigy is a fine board, a 160 would be well within the range you can ride, remember you're only talking a few centimeters difference between many models. Good luck and stick with it!!

Snowboard type or styles


"There are Three Different Types of Snowboards available on the market today: Freestyle, Freeride (All Mountain), and Alpine (Carving) Boards. Each board has a unique construction technique and materials, shape, flex pattern, and size. The type of Snowboard you ride should correspond to your particular style of riding. Freeride or All Mountain Board Freeride or All Mountain Snowboard Of the three Snowboard types, the Freeride Snowboard is the most popular. Accounting for half of all Snowboard sales, this type of board is a good all-mountain, park and Halfpipe Snowboard that is designed to float well in Powder Surface. You can enjoy carving, catching air, and basically all riding aspects with this type of Snowboard. Freeride boards have a directional shape and are meant to be ridden primarily in one direction. Having a directional shape means that the Snowboard's tip is different from its tail. In freeride, the tail is generally more narrow, shorter, and flatter than the tip of the board. With this, the stance on freeride boards is usually offset toward the tail of the board. Still, freeride boards can be ridden Fakie, despite their directional shape. Freeride Snowboards are usually fairly soft and maneuverable enough for beginners, but stiff enough to hold a fast turn in hard snow. This type of Snowboard bridges the gap between Freestyle and Alpine carving. However, it isn't as stable as a carving board and it isn't as agile as a freestyle board. Freestyle Snowboard Freestyle Snowboard A Freestyle Snowboard is wider, more stable, and more forgiving to ride. Also, it is shorter, lighter and (compared with a freeride board) softer in flex, which makes it easier to turn. These characteristics make a freestyle board very responsive to the rider. Consequently, it is the best choice for the beginner. These boards are built mainly for performing tricks in terrain parks and halfpipes (e.g. spins, air, grabs and riding fakie). Still, Freestyle Snowboards have limited edge grip and stability, and are not good for carving turns or cruising fast. Most Freestyle Snowboards are either twin tip boards or directional-twin. Twin tip boards have a centered stance with a tip and tail that are exact copies of each other, making them symmetrical in shape. Both ends of a freestyle Snowboard have a shovel, and freestyle boards with twin tip design makes it easy for beginners to ride both forward and backward (fakie). Directional-twin Snowboards are similar to the regular twin tip Snowboard; only, its tail is stiffer than the nose. Carving, Alpine, or Race Board Carving or Alpine Snowboard Carving Snowboards are narrower than freestyle and freeride boards. Their long, narrow, stiff constructions are configured for higher speeds and cleaner carved turns. With this, carving boards allow quick edge turns, swift, superior edge-holding power on hard snow, and good stability for speed. Also known as alpine boards, these snowboards almost look like an enlarged Ski. They are made in both symmetrical and asymmetrical styles and tend to only have a shovel on the nose. Similar with freeride boards, carving boards are made to ride only in one direction. While carving boards offer a higher level of performance, they are more difficult for the beginning rider to use and are generally reserved for more advanced riders. Alpine Snowboards are mainly preferred by Snowboard racers for a great day of fresh unridden powder. Keep in mind that alpine Snowboards are configured for riding and carving downhill, not for doing tricks. To summarize, freestyle, freeride, and alpine or carving Snowboards are the three basic types of Snowboards. It is easier to maneuver a soft-flexing, twin-tip, gradual side cut Freestyle Snowboard. On the other hand, it is harder to maneuver a stiffer-flex, directional, aggressive sidecut All-Mountain Snowboard with scores of combinations in between. Always remember that the type of Snowboard you ride should correspond to the type of riding that you like to do, and that both Freestyle and Freeride boards are good Snowboard types for beginning snowboarders."
