looking real long and hard at the Gnu Billy goat 2014.http://www.snowboardingforum.com/ima...lies/yahoo.gif
Looking for a board for free riding and pow. This suits me I like Mervin boards. I have an early 156 Carbon credit (bit stiff but a sweet ride).
Any way I am 49 yrs old and weigh 180 lbs and am 165 cm tall (not really a tall fella but solid).
looking at the weight guide lines the 159 will fit my weight as does the 162.
I dont wanting it to feeling like i am swinging a ladder around while I'm on the steep stuff.... http://www.snowboardingforum.com/images/smilies/WTF.gif
I was thinking along the lines of the 159, size wise. I understand I need some length for the pow, but the 162 keeps creeping into my head with the thought of shredding Japan with it. We spend most of our time in New Zealand and Australia.
So people help me decide the size..
