Coda is loads of fun. Little bit of a looser feeling if you are looking for technical precision that say a camber board provides. But it's just fun. Easy turn initiation even though my feet barely reached the edges (25.3 ww on a 153, I should be on a 24.5 or so). Good springy pop for a rockered board.

I never rode it on really bad snow but on good snow it was as fast as I needed.
Do you ride any park? when I am with my friends we hit the park like 1 in 3 runs. does the directional twin work fine?

Other boards that should be considered along with the above mentioned are
LibTech skate banana
GNU Pickle
Burton Custom (this is a classic)
Never Summer Proto (I was pretty close to buying this board)

All the sizes should be in the 156-158 range, I would say.

Ah and for your size 11 feet, buy low profile boots. They turn your clunky 11 to a size 10 and you can never feel the pain of mid wide boards. I use low profile boots (Salomon F22, I think).
Do I need to do that? will I get drag on the arbor in like a 157-8 or the others? not looking to buy new boots on top of a 500.00$ board if you feel me hahaha

Capita NAS in a 156 has a long effective edge. More than my Burton Aftermath 158. And the side cut is tight and carvey. Im 6' 180 and it holds a mean edge on piste and in the pipe. Custom is a lot of board meaning a little longer and heavier for the same specs but its also a great ride if you like Burton.

As a sidenote, back in the day we would take regular cambered boards and change the edge and base bevels on them to 2 or 3 degrees. This makes them really "spinny" and fun without giving up the pop and balls of camber. I do this to almost all of my cambered boards. You can have any tuner do it if you're not handy with that kind of stuff.
