I am 6'3 205 with 11'5 boot, beginner - linking turns. I would go on groomers mostly, I like short turns and moderate speed. I can have a good deal for burton mayhem 158. Would this board be ok for me or too short?
I can get 2008 model new for $170.
Being 205lb I am outside Burton's suggested range.
It would be my kind of all mountain but I wouldn't go fast. I am too old for fast .
I may want to learn some tricks down the road.
i have an 11.5 boot and ride a 25.1 waist width and its perfect so dont worry about that. i have a friend thats about your size and he rides a 158 without any problems. if you are just gonna be riding trails you should be fine. you might have balance issues if you start hitting park kickers since you are a little out of the weight range but maybe not.
