I struggle through life with my tall handicap . I started out the season with a 2012 Ride Bezerker 168W, but at only 267mm at the waist, my toes hang off about two inches. It's not really a problem on blues, but going toe side on blacks laid me out 50% of the time due to my toes catching on the snow and lifting my edge off.

I put in an order for a 2013 Elan El Grande 171 (claimed to be the widest snowboard in the world with a 284mm waist) on Monday. Hopefully that will reduce enough toe drag to take on blacks without fear of catching my toes . It's supposed to arrive on Friday, so I will know after this weekend if it's any better. If not, I think I'm SOL.
