Default 2011 Turbo dream sizing

I am buying a new board for the season this year and I have been looking at the 2011 turbo dream because it is fairly cheap right now. I am about 6'1 and 165 11.5 boot size and there are no 160cm length boards available anymore. Do you think that a 157 wide would be good enought size for me? I like to freeride mostly and I love powder. thanks

157 sounds good. You should hit up LEO to see if he still have his TD for sale

Default more advice

Thanks for the advice but I have been looking into it more and I was wondering if I really need a wide board?

Do you NEED a wide? Maybe, maybe not. With 11.5, wide would be safe and the performance would be totally fine. If there was a board that you really wanted that didn't have a wide option, then I'd consider it, but if you want the turbo dream then you might as well go with the wide. And 157 is probably a good size for you.
