size issue! need help :)

hi!

after much searching I finaly landed on

Board: K2 Happy Hour 2014
Boots: Burton Moto 2014
Bindings: Flow NX2-SE 2014

Im just at a bind with the sizes. Im 97 kg (213 lbs), 177 cm high and I use size 11 (us) in boots, but in the burton moto I can manage with 10,5 us.

Will this combo work together? and what size snowboard do i need? on blue tomato (the only place I found the K2 happy hour to ship to Norway) the largest I found was 157 (I like that colour best btw), can i get the 157 and have a good time with size 11 boots? or take the 10,5 boots, or try to find/wait for a 159 or 161?

tnx

I would base your decision on weight not height. 157 is too short imho.

I am 6'3 205 and I ride a 161 which is good but in POW I prefer longer like 164 or 165. You do not need a wide board based on your foot size.

What sold you on the happy hour?

Are you going to ride switch in any situation?

You also might want to look at the turbo dream, ultra dream if you hit POW as well. Also the Solomon mans board.

My friend loves the mans board. It is a bomber does well on groomers and floats in POW extremely well. It is a directional twin which sounds like more your riding style. I am extremely interested in the mans board because my riding style is very similar.

Just food for thought.. as for size 161 or maybe even a 163 because of the weight. Just make sure its not a wide model designated with W or X.
