Another "what size board" thread
First time posting here.
I'm looking at getting a Burton Series13 CustomX Wide, but can't settle on a length...they come 159, 164 or 168.
I'm 6'5" tall and will be ~205lbs when I lose the holiday padding. I currently ride a Rossignol Levitation 167 Wide, but I think I'd like a shorter board because this one just seems heavy and not as maneuverable as shorter boards I've rented before, so I am leaning toward the 164 length. However, might the 164 be just too short or flexible for my height and weight, will it be hard to keep straight on the flats? Does the 3cm difference from my Rossi make that big of difference? Is the CustomX a kick a$$ board?
At my height I don't do crazy 20 foot jumps but I do do a lot of small ones, also seem to never find powder, ride a lot of groomers, and definitely stay off crazy steeps. But when I do find powder I can always go back to the Rossi.
I just feel like I need some other opinions before I sink a grand into a new board.
