So after being frustrated with the performance of me old bored, I am considering buying a new one. I am a 5'8" and 165lb powder keg (sarcasm) and am currently riding a Ride Concept 161. I am on the East coast with mostly groomed or packed powder and ice and go out to chase the fresh as often as I can out west. As a matter of fact, I'm in Big Sky right now! Anyways, I find myself in the trees as much as possible in the East and on the tops of chutes and bowls in the West. I am looking for a board that is going to get me through those really tight turns in the trees and have amazing response when carving. I'm never in the park either. I've been looking at the Arbors and Lib Techs and am really interested in the Travis Rice boards. What do you guys think and what size should I get? Also, what model do you recommend? I'm def going smaller but is a 156 too small? Thanks for your input.
