Best is relative to you, but for a general purpose, probably the Contact Pro, or the SL.

Hi dudes & dudettes, I think I'll make my debute in this forum by kidnapping this thread.

I've more or less decided to get myself a 2013 BSOD, but after hours of searching and reading I'm not sure if I should go for the 162 or the 165 (I'm hoping the 165 is the best choice because I simply love the colour ^^) and need some advice.

My stats: 185 lbs, 6'2", boot size 11, and fully grown thank you. This'll be my all mountain board; I shall bomb groomers in Europe and surf pow in Japan, some spinning but not really into big kickers or rails. Definitely not an advanced rider yet but I know what I like and I have the ambition to grow and progress.

Appreciate the help, thx.

some thoughts:

was trying to pick between this and the rossi krypto for my new freeride board. I'm also 6'2", but i weight 155... I ride in the PNW.

I ended up going with krypto in 163 (was between that and the 159). Boards have similar tech, but price had a lot to do with it.
Camrock has a shorter effective edge than normal, the board is supposed to feel like its shorter than it is.

I can't wait to take it out for the first time this weekend.... hmmm will it be crystal or stevens....

At 185 dry? What are you in riding gear 205? I would go 162 at least.

Per Evo size chart for Capita

159 135-170lbs
162 145-190lbs
165 155-210+

So do what you want with that info. Fast all mtn board, I go 161-165 easy and I weigh 170lbs without riding gear.

Camrock and the similar profiles deff do a good job of making a longer board "feel" shorter, its kinda nice!

Yes they take the death!

For japan 165 for sure 100 % .... If you ride mountains över than big bear go for little extra is alway better if you are a rat park go always a little shorter . If you are rich buy 3 boards to get cover
