Is there mtns in oz? Where do you ride in oz anyway... Ayers Rock ???
i have a banana magic as well and love the thing. in terms of playfulness i have more fun on the magic than i do on the t.rice. but the t.rice is better suited for freeriding and pow conditions

I think i've decided on the new Never Summer 2012 SL.
I'm only 16 and want a relatively safe board and i think that'll give me the fun and security I want so i can shred and hit the park
Hopefully my US 12 feet will fit into the 158cm board with a 25.3 waist.
Thanks for the help guys

P.S, Ballistic there is snow here, it's just ice and crap, i'm sick of it and i'm going to hit Japan and Utah up when i'm finished school

253mm is pretty narrow for size 12 boots. You might be okay, but I'd be a little nervous.

25.3 sounds really narrow for size 12. why not go w/ a legacy bro? it's the wider version of the SL

Angry

Iím looking for the ideal size snowboard. Parameters are height: 184cm (6 ď) Weight: 83kg (183lbs), boot size 11.5 (Burton Ion). groomers 50% , pow 25%, 25% of using park . I've read many opinions, but I can't decide whether 157 or 161.5 would be better for me. I love the deep snow, but I am afraid there is little to 157, but a large jump in the park at 161.5 for me?

With reverse (or hybrid in this case) camber boards the natural shape of the board will float on POW regardless of length. I ride an undersized board (151.cm for 70ish kg) and had no problem with it on the good days in Japan. The T-Rice is a super aggressive board and is going to be great for POW and hitting massive jumps, maybe not ideal for park / jibbing about.

Something like the GNU riders choice (which I ride) is still hybrid camber but is less aggressive and more flexy so it's more fun on groomers and better in the park, but still handles the POW fine. If you think you're going to start spending more time on epic back-country runs then grab the T-rice, otherwise something along the lines of the Riders Choice / Custom V / most Never Summer boards will be better suited to your style of riding.

look at the rome agent rocker, it has the hybrid camber and is great for all mountain freestyle so you can do all your runs as well as hit the park.. it's not a noddle but its not STIFF its probably a 5-6 out of 10 in stiffness
