Oh dam man, no your way to heavy for a noodle of that size.... Scratch the Horrorscope off.
Your gonna need something closer to a 160 with your weight I would say..
I weigh 175-200ish, depending and I ride a 155w and it's about perfect for me. I don't think it would have enough balls to pop you.
I'm really surprised the Black Death isn't good for you considering your weight....
I mean I guess you could do it but I don't think any wide boards in the Capita lineup will work for you as a playful stick.
Thing you gotta think about with a park oriented board is they're a lot softer then your stiffer all mountain/freestyle boards. Your weight will crumple them up basically, unless you can get a longer one. I'm really surprised that the Black Death was too stiff for you.... Maybe a 156w Black Death would work... But nothing else in the Capita lineup will hold your weight imo.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I thought even though the tail is really stiff, that when I shift my weight back, it should be able to get the board to butter pretty good. But when I shift my weight, the nose only gets 2-3 inches off the ground. I also thought, considering my weight, that I would be able to learn how to ollie easily. But the stiffness is making it hard to get the timing down. The couple of times that I got a really good ollie with height, I had to use a lot of force and weight shift. I have no problems with the nose, just gotta get over the fear/paranoia of buttering and doing a nollie downhill.
Maybe I should just go rent a 156W twin deck(no matter what board), and try it out? Just to get the feel maybe?
It just feels weird that my park/butter board is going to be bigger than my BDI.
And another thing that the guy at the shop said to me was, "The way you describe on how you ride you're board, it's the perfect size for you." He works at a pretty reputable shop(sierrasnowboard.com), so I just took his word for it.
On a side note, I'm gonna try to drop back down to 220lbs. before next season.(Let's see how that works out.
