ns premier 2010

hi,

I am set on buying this board just need a little help...i only do groomers and freeride, and currently ride atomic radon 169 with arsenals and malamutes.
I am 6-6,5 and 250ish :-).
My question, should i get 168(leaning towards it) or 172, also will size 12,5 fit(it says 168 is a bit wider)? and is this board little more fun then my stiff ass(but awesome) radon?


thanks a lot

i've got a buddy about the same size. He picked up a 174 legacy and he says its just too big to have much fun. He later got a 167 that he rides most of the time. The 174 only sees the snow if the pow is deep. So go for the 168 unless you ride a lot of pow and need the extra float. 12.5 boot on a 25.9 waist board is borderline, you could look at the Heritage-XR 166 for a wider board.

You'll be fine on the 65 and up with a 12.5 boot.
