I am 38 years old about 5'11" and 210 pounds. I skied for years but my kids just got into boarding and I am now looking for a board for myself. I have only been on a board about a dozen times but am looking for a decent all around setup. I have been looking at the Gnu Carbon Credit but confused on what size due to my weight. I know the charts are just a starting point but everyone I talk to has a different opinion. I am currently being told 153, 156 or 159. From my several times renting I think I like a board on the shorter side but don't know if a shorter board is going to wash out with my weight. What do you think and any other boards I should be considering?
Ur my son's size, a 159-162, he has 155 stiffer cambered but its really too small. He likes his 159 banana, and also has a 162 pintail (too short for deeper than 10-12 inches and 164 for poo days. But get something with mag or the likes to help prevent washout especially for the east.
