Really you guys don't think 159 is on the large end for 150lbs on a modern board?
I do & I don't.
If your fairly new, you don't have a big mtn with powder, it's icy & all your doing is park. I think that's too big.
If you ride mt.Baker, nope. You just don't see that many hard packed groomers, every 2 or 3 days it snows a foot. There is a little mtn less than an hour north of baker that closes Mon,Tues & Wed. Thursdays are epic, sometimes it's 4 feet deep, you need a big board for that shit. @ least once a month
You ain't that old
, I think I got ya by a year
