Looking to upgrade from my first board!

Hi all,

I'm finally looking to upgrade my old Burton Custom V-Rocker 159 that I bought back in 2010. The board still rides great but looking for something different.

A little about me.. I've been riding for about 7-8 years and don't really do any park. I tend to just ride all mountain and like to carve, bomb and currently learning to ride switch. The goal would be to learn to butter a little, maybe jib a little but to just learn how to all around ride.

I've got my heart set on the Capita DOA but wanted to see if a 156 would be too small for my needs? Would 3 cm make a huge difference? I'm 5'10 180 lbs and a size 10 boot.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Capita DOA would be a great choice. I think the 156 would work quite well for you for playing on groomers, but if you are planning on riding powder with any regularity I would suggest stepping up one size.

I think you will be fine on the 156 but would prefer the 158 or even 160 for all mountain riding much better

Most definitely.. I saw that the price just went down and the 156 is more readily available from reputable places while the 158 is harder to find.

Thanks for the replies!

I was also looking at the Capita DOA as an option. Right now the price with union bindings package is awesome below $500 for a high rated board. People really like it.

For me it came down to the Yes Greats, Jones Ultra Mountain, and NeverSummer type two (which I picked), that are all a bit more expensive, but more all mountain inclined in my research.
