New 158 Machete

Just got my new board! 158 Ride Machete w/ powder blue revolt bindings. Taking it up to snow summit to try it out - the snow may be shit but its better than nothing. I move to Boulder, CO next august and can't wait to hit up Breckenridge, Keystone, and the rest of the rockies next season. Posted some pictures, how do y'all like my setup?

Update on the board -

I paired it with Ride Revolt bindings and my burton ruler boots, you can see the whole set up in the pictures above. I'm 6'0'', 150 and the 158 is perfect for all mountain riding. I have my bindings a little wider than the markings, but still centered. Edge hold is great when the snow gets crappy and it floats pretty well in the deep stuff. It is a little stiffer than ride rates it but that has helped as my riding has improved lately and I'm going a lot faster.

Overall I love this board.
