thanks, ya he is looking more for a charging board i think. Probably something like the NS Heritage but without the price tag. He hasn't bought a board in a few years so he is kinda out of the loop. i have never been in the loop lol.

Flow infinite I-rock or the pop-cam. Should be able to find one for $300ish. 162ish as well. Really good edge hold and damp. It's a lot of board for the money

I found the edge hold on the I-rock to be fantastic actually. It cut through chop better than almost everything else I've ridden. It is my favorite rocker/sidecut combo. The rocker is center reverse, flat, micro camber. Think Nitro Gullwing.

with size 11 boots he may be able to go without the wide since the waist is 256...that might work.

He'll be fine on the 159 or the 162 if he has any kind of reasonable stance with 11's.

Solitude is a great pow killer and freeride machine. Its a more rockered version of I'rock if I remember right.
