Question Please help me find a BIG board (I'm 6'8" 100kg/240lb; Size 14US feet)

Some years ago I lived, worked and played in Steamboat Colorado.

My favorite board was awesome fun... a massive 181cm K2 Fatbob (with riser plates to get my big feet up out of the snow) bought at the beginning of the 2000 season and stupidly sold at the end because I was travelling overseas and didn't want the grief of hauling it around. (In fairness I lived in Australia at the time... in the north... where they don't get snow:-))

Anyways... the long and the short is that I loved this board and am looking for a new one.... but can't seem to find anything similar. Due to my height, size and feet I need a big, wide board.

Can anyone help me with some suggestions please??

Cheers

Wave Rave Snowboard Shop | LIBTECH SKUNK APE MTX LONG 180

they make it in a 190 as well, but i really dont think you need a board that long. I weigh more than you and i ride a 163 no problem. Height really has nothing to do with board size. Rome Flag Snowboard | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2008

edit: isn't 100kg 220lb?

You can also look at the Burton Custom Wide. I've heard of them as long as 178.
NeverSummer Legacy 174 (yes shorter, but I believe NS makes usually really stiff boards, so I think you'd be fine on it)
