Checking it out.
waist width is is the size of the the "wideness" of the Board !
...look for the 157 Travis Rice and a stiffer binding ! The T.Rice itself has a wider waist and is good for going fast down groomers !
This is the board that caught my eye - http://www.evo.com/snowboards/lib-te...oard-blem.aspx
But isn't a true twin more directed for park and such?
Now I understand it doesn't necessarily have to say "wide" to have my proper waist width. Cause my flying v is "wide" and 256 mm and it has about half an inch on each side, which I think is ideal eh?
The waist width is the width of the board at it's narrowest point. For your size and what you're wanting to do, I'd probably be looking at something around a 156W.
Thanks for the knowledge, makes sense now hah. And my current one is a 155 wide, which I'd consider my all mountain. So I'm thinking 157 would be good for just groomers and trails.
