Got any board size recommendations? Not too familiar with the brand but I heard great things.

I don't doubt that its not a good board, but I'm a bit worried about the nose and tail camber technology. I heard that this hybrid stuff makes it kinda feel like youre sliding around because its harder to get edge because its rocker shaped.

What do you think?

I bought a Capita TFA this year, not used yet obviously but I'm the same size as you pretty much(6'1, 200, 10.5 foot). I've got a 161....if you want it on the smaller side, you should still look at getting a 159, if not the 161. Especially with your foot size

Thanks for the input. I did a shitload of research on the Forum Quantum and I think its just too stiff to just take down slopes. But man that POP IS TEMPTING.

I've heard mixed things about TFA, that at first carves and turning can be a little tricky at first because of the elevated nose and tail and feels a bit more like sliding around at first. Tell me how the TFA performs when you the get the chance man. What about the pop in the TFA? Think it'll make a good jump board?

Oh yeah and how heavy is it? Can you pick it up with easy with one hand?

hahaha. I haven't personally handled the tfa, but I don't think excessive weight will be an issue with it. i've owned a bunch of capita boards and none of them have been abnormally heavy weight wise. The TFA, from what I have read about it from a whole bunch of people, is a fairly stiff board.... So if you are trying to avoid stiffer decks, probably might think about the two you already listed or the BSOD if you are interested in capita. I rode a sl-r for two years, prob. my favorite deck i've ever owned. however, it softened up ALOT over time.... i put around 90 days on it before I sold it. Still fun in the end, just different. The only way to find out if you like a particular camber profile is to ride it... i hated my sl-r at first, I probably spent 2 9-4 resort days on it before I was comfortable. Sometimes it just takes a while to get used to a board, you adapt, and ride the same on it as you would on anything else.
