Default What length legacy for me?

I'm scooping up a (what else but) 2010 Neversummer Legacy-R. I'm buying it at a local shop to try and support them for a later time when I have an emergency equipment FUBAR and I need them.

Any rate, back to the point. I'm trying to choose between a 163 and a 166.

Stats: 6'3", 205 lbs., Size 13 Vans Cirros, Flow NXT-AT. East Coast. I like my freeride with attempts at breaking land speed records from time to time. I also appreciate the deep carve. This year I'm learning switch and throwing decent sized kickers into the mix.

To the point: What size do you suggest? 163 or 166?

Thanks in advance.

I recommend either a 161 or 163... Doubt your going to catch any high speed chatter in these lengths, and going slightly shorter can be a lil more fun.

Would probably be best to go with a 163 as you will loose some width dropping to the 61. With that size foot your gonna need what you can get ( =

Kalo I think either the 163 or 166 would be fine for you..... I'm 6'4/5" 180-200lbs and I could go slightly smaller then the 161 and feel comfy.

I'm gonna bet you would feel best on a 166 if you like more all mountain stuff, and 163 if your more into park stuff.

What stick are you looking into buying Kalo?

The lenght I normally feel comfortable with is 163, but that's with a normal cambered board. I was just wondering what kind of considerations I should take into account with the R.C. stuff.

I suppose with the vario grip, the board will bite a bit harder into the East Coast ice than a normal 163 would.

I'm hoping BA throws his 2 cents in here.

FWIW I ride a regular camber 149 and a N.S. Infinity-R 149. Any longer and the N.S. wouldn't be as playful and any shorter would seem sketchy at full speed.

Technically (whatever that means) you're supposed to size down a Mervin but not a N.S.

Probably because Mervins are aimed at the park rats. They don't need to hold tight high speed edges... On the contrary, a good park board is filed down as dull as the back of a butterknife.

BA? Where you at? Someone finally WANTS your 2 cents and you're nowhere to be found!
