I ride in Japan Niseko area where powder snow is extremely light. Only go offpiste once in a while.

The 161cm Neversummer Summit 161cm have served me well for the past couple years but it's a bit on the heavy side. Looking for a replacement now that I'm going to the states for 1 week and can pick up a board.

My current setup for regular stuff is:
2011 Libtech Travis Rice 157cm
Burton Cartel 2010 Large
Vans Fargo Size 10

For powder, i go with:
2007 Neversummer Summit
Burton Cartel 2010 Large
Vans Fargo Size 10


Here are the two boards i'm thinking.

1) NeverSummer Summit 2012 167cm from dogfunk - Never Summer Summit Snowboard from Dogfunk.com
2) Atomic Sir Floatalot 2012 153 cm from Amazon - Amazon.com: Atomic 2012 Sir Floatalot Snowboard: Sports & Outdoors


Given my riding style, which board will suit me more?

Thanks
I ride in Nozawa in Nagano.

I like the look of that NS Summit and its a very good deal.

Are you going with the 161cm?

should be good at your weight.

I know nothing of the other board, but I like NS a lot and they make super reliable quality boards as you know.

I ride an NS now and have ridden an atomic in the past. NS is way better built and just feels like more thought has gone into it from people who love snowboarding.
