REALLY soft. I'm coming off a 158 Custom X which I did justice to but was way too much board for me.

I am an intermediate level rider that is comfortable on most Blue runs (depending on the
mountain) and will venture into some Black Diamonds knowing I will crash hard at some point.
I will hit the half pipe eventually for a quick run or two; no backcountry but maybe tree
runs when I'm confident. Mostly I like carving and a bit of speed.

Did I buy the wrong board for my riding style? I'm 5'9" and 140 pounds. Thanks for
any advice.
A T.Rice seems more your thing.
