Board order messed up!

I just got a call from the online retailer who I ordered my board from last night (The House Snowboards Snowboard Boots Bindings Clothing) and was informed that the stock for the board I ordered was listed incorrectly on the website. Turns out, I can't get the one I originally wanted (2010 Ride Fleetwood 165), but I was offered a couple of discounts that would get a different board down to a similar price. Does anybody have any recommendations for a beginner to intermediate rider who's 250 lbs, and has a pair of size 13 boots?

I've included the link for the wide boards offered on the website too.

I'm looking at the Burton Custom there and it says for the 165W Custom, the weight limit is 155-205 lbs. Would I be able to get away with that being around 250 lbs?

Might work, but sounds like it might be pushing the bounds of Burton's designed flex pattern for that board. Every manufacturer rates their weight range differently though, so it might work. K2 and Ride (made by K2) seem to have a broader weight range in their boards. The Ride Antic (step up from the Fleetwood in a way, with Carbon Array 3) lists each of the Wide models as "150/160/170-220+" lbs at the top end. K2 similarly lists their Wides as an open-ended "> 160" for example.

What kind of riding are you doing and planning on doing?

I plan on just riding in east coast conditions (hard pack and ice). I really don't have any interest in the terrain park.

Exclamation K2 - very stiff

The K2 is quite stiff and should be well suited

I was actually looking at that one before. It seems a little expensive though...

Should be fine. I'm 6'1" and 250lbs., and I ride a 159W for my all mountain board(Capita BDI).

Sounds fine, but I ended up going with that K2 Slayblade in 166W with Flow Flite 2 bindings. The customer service rep at the-house.com gave me an awesome deal that ended up costing me a little under $5 more than my original set-up would have. I'm in a good mood right now haha

I hope you enjoy the new board. I am still waiting on mine and expect it sometime this month. I got the new 2011 model, though I prefer the graphics onthe current 2010 model better.
