You should have an easier time doing the type of riding you described. The length of the board may take some getting used to, and at your weight I might have opted for something around 159, but with 13 years of experience I'm sure you'll be just fine. The Fargo is a fairly stiff boot and should fit your riding style well also. I'm not a fan of the cinch technology, but I don't know much about those bindings. How stiff are they?
