Hey guys thank you very much for the help on that.
Well, after all your feedback it looks that i am pretty sure about the goliath (either 160W or 161). Everytime when I have to purchase something a bit more expensive you have to chose once and ignore all the ifs, whens and buts
I will head to my local dealer tomorrow and have a short talk with him again, he pretty much knows the stuff and he will probably give me last few tipps regarding length and about taking a WIDE or not when he sees my boots and bindings.
I will give you an update.
I also have had a short look on the whatever. Looks very nice actually ... even nicer than the goliath ... but then is the max length again of 159 ... in the end, I think coming from a over 7 year old board, either of them will bring me to a new level of snowboarding, so I probably stick to the goliath.
I rather make some compromises in the spining performance with taking a longer board, because hitting fresh powder always draws a big fucking smile on my face, and even if only once a week you have a good powder run for 10 minutes, beeing ready for this one will be worth it ... i just love to fly through the snow
how about buttering / jibbing, it wont make much of a difference choosing between 159 - 163 ?
