This is off the thread topic but how do you like your charlie slasher?

I am looking for a pow specific board as we have so much pow here in Japan.

How does it hold up going through lengthy groomed areas to get to the deep stuff?

Can you do jumps and grabs of natural features with it?

As for the OP, I dunno. I am 11 and I usually ride a 252 or a 258 waist. I have reduced footprint boots and 252 is the limit. 258 is sweet.

Lots of people with little feet here in Japan and also short boards, they are light weight in general too.

Don't find many wide boards.
