K2 166cm Wide Slayblade.
Waist width is 26.8cm (Damn wide)
Stance width is 23 inches
Stiff board for big guys. I am the same height but 250lbs size 14. This is one great board for big blokes.

^^ Board is awesome. I have also have a NS Legacy, I actually just got back from riding. I like the Slayblade so much more. Awesome felx, and bombs. You can't go wrong with that board.

I have a Nitro Volume 159W. I absolutely love it! The waist on it is 27cm with a 25" stance. I'm 6'3", 180lbs and wear a size 13. The board is stiff yet flexy enough that it still gets good pop. It's a directional with a "true" twin tip and has a slight setback. 15mm maybe? Anyway, I think it's a great board and it's definitely durable which is always a bonus. I know it comes in bigger sizes also. I think maybe a 163.

Yes it is.:) Ever since I got it, my boarding has improved tenfold. It's amazing what eliminating heel and toe drag can do.:D

I just borrowed a buddies K2 Nemesis for my last trip. I liked it. Slayblade that much wider/ better?
thx

The difference between them in width is insignificant. Both equally as wide. Both as stiff. I consider the K2 Nemesis the grandfather to the slayblade hehe. Like the nemesis, love the slayblade.\

Any thoughts on the Nitro Magnum 165 or 68 or the Lib Tech Skunk Ape?

Cavman 03-23-2010 12:11 AM

I rode the Lib tech in Japan last month and I found it a little too flexible for me, but then again I like stiff boards. Not touched the Nitro
