Backed into board purchase, need some feedback

old set up

Burton floater 162 (Camber,obv)( from circa 2001)
Drake LTD bindings
Northwave Ledgend boots

Bought new bindings first. RIDE El Hefe. Received them Monday, they are sweet!

I will probably keep my boots this season, but may replace them too if advise here suggests I should.

Stats:
6'4"
210 POUNDS
SIZE 13 BOOT
FREE RIDER
80% IN BOUNDS MOSTLY IN BLACK
10 TO 20 SIDE COUNTRY
NO PARK.

Looking at Wide boards. Ride burzerker looks like a good choice, but not sure what KIND of hybrid it is, ie, RCR OR CRC, etc.

The berzerker is pretty much flat(they call it micro camber but its pretty damn near flat) then has slight upturn before the tip contact points to float a little better in powder. combined with a little setback its pretty good. Should match what you are looking for.
The 162 should still be good but the 165 wouldn't hurt either.

If your boots arent worn out then keep them, but new boots designs have come a long way. Especially in wieght and response vs comfort. I usually replace mine every couple seasons or less depending on how much i rode and how well they are holding up. I can't recomend any of the Boa laced boots but speed laces and regular laces work great. Ride RFL, K2 T1, Nitro team select, Salomon F22, burton drivers are all medium stiff boots good for freeride. Salomon malatutes are probably the stiffest boots out there.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Thanks.

I have looked at the Ride RFL and nearly pulled the trigger yesterday, didnt want to get off track.

I dont want a flat board. I llke the rebound of the camber. Heavy rider + riding crud often I feel like something on the stiffer side too.

Will keep looking. Ride Antic sounds close to what I am looking for if you read their description, but it is classified as a Rocker...

^^The Antic is completely flat through the bindings, basically the same shape as the Berzerker without the camber. I'd actually recommend the Highlife for you since it's stiffer than the Berzerker. I wouldn't be worried about how little camber there is on the hybrid profiles Ride has. The Highlife has enough carbon in it to give you that "spring."

On a separate note, the RFL's are phenomenal. Best boot I've owned, crazy crazy light and real stiff.
