Default Hope this looks good.... ?

Ok I have been doing as much research as I could but wanted to make sure from "normal people."

Height- 6'2''
Weight- 185-190 adding a couple extra pounds in muscle if I can.
Boot size- size 13
Riding style groomers hope to ramp it up a little.
Age 23
Your location of riding- 10-15min from Perfect North Slopes in Indiana.

OK, here is what I just bought:

2008' Burton 162 wide King
2009 Burton L Freestyle Bindings
2009 Burton Tribute Boots

After doing my research I found I needed:
Length 162-163-164 ish.
Width 259-262-265 ish
Bindings Large
Boot 13.

I decided to go with the smaller length by 2 cm because the board was a little better than the one that was a 164. This however fell into my "zone" according to my research.

Please give me any input if you will.

Let me know how that board works on the Indy crud. I used a 156, but stepped up to a 165 for the deeper stuff when I moved out west.

You weigh a little more than me, but it's pretty close. I was 175-180.

Enjoy PN, it's a pretty fun place.

And I'd also like to know your angles. They look pretty steep.

Perfect North is decent. Compared to what is nearby, and that is nothing except Paoli, PN is pretty good. I went to Paoli more because it was WAY less crowded and the lodge was at the top of the hill instead of the bottom so I didn't have to board into a mass of people at the bottom of the hill.

Lol yeah my angles are set up pretty big. I have no clue what they should be at. From what I can tell I just aligned the bindings in the board so that all 3 holes matched up right lol. I need to go back and find out what is comfortable for me.

I was going to go up to Perfect North today to try it out but I have been feeling sorta sick. Work 12 hours tomorrow and then will hopefully find sometime between grad school homework and work to drive on over.

Thank you for saying that and not asking what they're SUPPOSED to be. You're 100% right. Ride it and figure out what you like the most. +1 point for you.
