Board Selection Question
Ok, cliff notes back story. In 2000,all my gear was stolen from my garage. I had an Alien Workshop 152 and a burton Custom 160 stolen.
I replaced them with a Neversummer 154 as I was only around 165lbs back then. Well due to life, work, and a terrible marriage that board stayed in the bag from 12-31-2000 until last season.
I live in Indiana so even with the 60 lbs I gained due to the lousy marriage mentioned above the 154gets me around Okay. There isn't any back country here and fresh natural powder is a very rare sight.
Fast forward to now, 220 ish ( on a severe weight redution plan now and still dropping lbs)
Size 12 boots, Mainly carving, bombing and I will hit the occasional kicker and have no problem popping off of random obstacles around the slopes. I am damn near 40 years old and don't have any interest at all in rails. I hit the occasional box but again, very very rarely.
After much reading and studying I am Interested in The NS SL or maybe even the NS legacy.
I am thinking a 161 or 164. I ride duck @ 18 - 18* so I think the size 12 would be fine on the 161 or 164 sl. I like the idea of edege to egdge being quicker than the legacy due to width.
I am heading to Colorado in March and I am trying to add a second board, more sutied to my size to my quiver just in case it snows while we are there.
Am I thinkg along the right lines or would you reccomend another direction? FWIW, I have Flow Nxt Fse's to mount on whatever I buy.
Thanks in advance guys.
