Size question for intermediate rider.
I got into snowboarding this time last year. Now that I've been at it for a full season, I'm getting better at it and really starting to enjoy it. My current board is a Salomon Ace. I am 6'1", 215 lbs and I wear size 12 boots. My board is a 162cm board and it's the wide version. I ride left foot forward and my bindings are +21 and +6. I'm starting to feel like it's a bit too big. It is FAST. Gravity really loves me. It's a little faster than I like, and not as maneuverable. Would a shorter, non wide board be a little easier to maneuver? I just like to snowboard down the hill. I don't do jumps or anything crazy. My current board comes up to my bottom lip. What could I get that would slow down a bit and would be a little more maneuverable? Size recommendations are appreciated as well as a board recommendation. I figure I might be able to get a deal on a board for next season now that this one is almost over.
