The nitro slash gulling is powder specific so i think it would be perfect for that, and i believe the bird man is also made specifically for powder. I don't know a lot about jones boards but i do know there is a powder specific one also.

Of course those boards are all for off piste, i haven't included them because i think they would be good on groomers

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls

156 Jones Hovercraft has a 26cm waist and I've read it turns like a much smaller board. Not sure how easy it would be to get one now though; I preordered my 52 in summer and only got it last week.

I'd take a look at our Nomad and Hazelwood lines. We can custom shape them to fit you. A 27cm waist is likely what you want for your 13 foot and if you want it softened for your weight, that's no problem. The Hazelwood is more of a big mountain gun and the Nomad is setup to stay a bit shorter, provide huge amounts of float and maneuverability in the trees.

Yeah but just because a board is powder specific doesn't mean it's fun and playful.

The birdman is 180cm, that's not going to be fun in the trees...

Does come in 170 as I'm sure you know, but anyway I was recommending powder specific boards as OP asked even if they aren't playful enough for you I know some guys who own them both and love them that's why I suggested them.

Thanks for the ideas. I am looking for something to have fun with so I 'd like a playful board. I don't think a 170 is for me.
I'll take a look at the other boards suggested so far. If anyone has any other suggestions please, I'd love to hear them.

You might be a Yes Pick Your Line or Yes Big City kind of guy. I have an Optimistic that splits the difference. Great board for that. Coming from a guy that owns a Rice( blunted '57).

Check out the GNU Billy Goat as well. Snow wolf has a really good review on it.
