I am currently 5'8" at 177 lbs and I was wondering your opinion on my current setup.
I ride a 155 NS Heritage. I love going fast and doing somewhat sharp carves. I have size 11.5 burton boots (actually 10.5 footprint) and I noticed that I have about an inch of overhang both toe and heel on this board.
I primarily ride for speed and carving on groomers, but I have been getting into jumps, spinning, and park riding. I would say my ratio as of now is still 85/15 (more freeride)
What do you think, is this board to small for me? I havn't noticed any heel or toe drag as of yet, but as I progress and improve I want to be comfortable that I won't bite it and cost me my life.
I was thinking about getting a heritageX 156 since the waist is at 260. Seems kind of silly to have the same board in almost the exact size, but I would try to sell it or just keep it for summer use at the indoor ski place and use it for learning switch, hitting jumps, and working on spins.
Any feedback or guidance is apprciated
I'm thinking of calling NS and asking for an opinon and possibly see if they would take the 155 for a trade in on a different size, but I'm sure this is highly unlikely.
