new camber board your thoughts

I'm looking to sell my Solomon bored and pick up a new camber boardthis year. It has to be a wide board since I wear size 11 shoes. Directional is OK and I like a stiffer board. What are your thoughts. Was looking at a Burton custom, Jones mtn twin and Ride Berzerker in the ranges of 157-159cm. Not completely stuck on those, just what I was looking at. I'm open to any and all thoughts. Let me know

if it was easy everybody would do it. But if it was so easy would be even work doing?

The jones has quite a bit of rocker and the berzeker has basically flat with a bit of rocker and is stiffer than the rating they give it. other cool camber decks- Capita NAS (cheap but good), Signal OG camber, and the K2 Slayblade rides a lot like camber but isn't.

You also may be able to get away with a midwide board at that foot size, the salomon man's board and capita totally fk'n awesome are close.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Cost really don't bother me. If the product is good ill spend the extra money. Right now besides the 162w Ace i have a 158w GNU riders choice with Ride Capo bindings. So I got rocker ccovered. That's why I want a better camber board. Sometimes I just like riding camber.

if it was easy everybody would do it. But if it was so easy would be even work doing?

All thereviews I just looked at speak very highly of it. Has anyone got to demo it or have one themselves?

if it was easy everybody would do it. But if it was so easy would be even work doing?

Looking at the specs I saw a 2013 slayblade 158cm not wide though. The waist is 25.2cm. Should I be looking at the wide version since I'm going to be wearing size 11 thirty-two Binary Boa boots?

You might not need a wide, i'm not an expert at baord width choices, but they do make a 159W Slayblade Wide Snowboard | Snowboards | K2 Snowboarding 2013-2014

Hey man,

Check out the YES Pick Your Line. Good fast board for hitting big natural terrain. They also have a wide version.

At 159 and 11's you should never need a wide unless you are riding 0/0 angles.
