Default Sizing of new board

Hey, I just bought the NS Heritage X 163 and am kinda second guessing my size choice. 185lbs 6'2" and East Coast riding. Would you all recommend keeping the 163 or sending it back and getting a 156 or 159? Thanks a lot (realize I am doing this thing backasswards).

We will need more information from you. Mainly your boot size and the type of riding you do. Experience would also be helpful.

Based purely on your weight alone, 163 is good for powder riding. All-mountain size for you would be better within the 158-161 range. 156 is a good freestyle size for you.

Sorry. My boot size is gonna be around a 13 (haven't picked a pair out yet so don't know for sure but currently have a pair of 13 Burtons). I have been riding for 6 years now and am an intermediate rider. I just go down the trails at the mountains and am not too interested in doing any park riding. Thanks for responding!

157 - 161 Wide is a good size. I would personally ride a 158 or 159W at your weight and style.

If you like charging fast and riding powder, the 163 is fine. I rode one all last year and I'm 5'11", 155. But I've been riding for 20+ years.

Yea, I am not that experienced haha. That, and it seems that whenever I make it to the mountain, it is usually not powder (maybe once a season it is) and is either ice or man made.

Yeah then you might want to go smaller.
