However i agree its hard to find a board if ur a larger heavier guy

Checked Ebay.de for u and found this:
Burton Freestyle Snowboard 164cm with Flow Binders, 4 yrs old, 180 euro, not bad for board and binders i guess. Its just a suggestion tho, i like shopping for great online deals.
hey cozmo,

thanks alot that you invest so much time helping me.
im very pleased ...

but i really dont want to buy a used one.. imagine sth wouldnt be ok -
i have absolutly no problems with used things but i wouldnt feel comfortable..

its hard to describe.. especially the describiton mentioned that the board isnt 100% ok.

about the salomon

Salomon Sight 166W 12/13 300 euro
Riding Style: Freeride, Freestyle
Men's / Uni Snowboard
Right length for your height, gender and riding style: Board Length 166 cm
fits your weight (86.14 kg)
riding level: Beginner, Advanced

Looks really nice but

sth confused me alot:

240 lbs are ~108kg , not 86,14 =)

i dont know if theres a limit of tolerance but 20kg seems
a lot.


::::EDIT::::


Cozmo i did the research yesterday and there was no result for me..
today again and this salomon board popped up !!!

i will wait some more days, mb some1 else got a nice idea too...(the style of the board is ~,~" acceptable..) i know it shouldnt
matter but mb there are other good boards who fit my :how my dreamboard should look-like a bit more)^^
