Default New Board Advice Please

Hey guys,

Been riding for about 4 years. Learned in Minnesota now in riding Colorado. Iím currently on a Salomon Jerksen 159. I'm 6'2" 210lbs and want a new/bigger board. I mostly do groomers and pow when possible. Don't really go in the park. I've been doing some research online and found a few boards that I like. Would love some opinions. Also would love to know if you think I need to be on a wide. I wear a size 11 K2 boots.

NS SL
NS PrimierF1
NS Heritage
Capita Black Snowboard of Death

Thanks in advance

Well its more about getting a new one more than a bigger one. But going by sizing charts I should be on a 165, but i was thinking of getting a 161 or 163.

yea if you aren't doing park get a bigger board man. Also the bigger boards will accomodate your feet better so you wont need a wide.

I vote the SL; the heritage, premier, and BOSD are really agressive boards, which makes them awesome but more work. If thats what you want though, the Heritage is probably best.

Take a hard look at the Heritage in a 162. It's good on hardpack and amazing in powder. The Heritage X will be more versatile than the F1 yet stiff enough for your weight and size. I think the SL will be too soft for you if you are a strong intermediate to advanced rider.

If you pick the right board you will not need a wide board for a 11 boot.

Thanks for the advice. Do you guys think having always ridden a camber board that the rocker/camber mix will feel that much different?
