Actually i am going to buy the longer board, but just curious how you ride a shorter deck in the deep stuff.
I have no problem but I don't go on low angle slopes if it's over calf deep and only over 25-30* slope in deeper stuff. I keep speed up but have no problem getting started again if I eat shit. We have real light snow here like Japan does so comparison would be close for waist/nip deep snow here and there. My only wish is that I put another 1" setback on my board on the real deep days so my back leg didn't hurt as much......
