Lin tech skunk ape sizing
Im probably going to be picking up a lib tech skunk ape soon. This will be my first new board in about 7 years. Im a bigger guy, about 6'' 215lbs and have a size 12 boot. I want a board that will be good for pretty much everything on the mountain, but most of all i want a board that is a lot of FUN. I mainly want a poppy board that I can shred groomers, hit the back country, and ride the park. The guys at the shop recommended that I ride the 161 if i want a funner board, but i do not want to sacrifice ridebility and stability when im shredding the groomers and floating the powder. Right now im debating between the 161 and the 165, but i wanted to get some input from here first before i make my final decision. What sizes/styles of riding are people using for these boards?
