Its way better then a 152 cambered board i used to ride, like you dont have to lean back for it to float. Im over-exaggerating about the float... It was a big board to work with though. i was wasted by the time we went back home. And i am from Slovenija which is like Russia...
Ill sell it if you buy me a bataleon evil twin.... Or 350. The core shot was fixed but it wasn't really a core shot because it didnt go to the wood, just deep gauge.
Little too big for this guy. Slovenija is a beautiful country. Passed through last summer on our way from Rijeka Croatia to Italy. My wife is Croatian. You need to go back home to find yourself a wife. Women from those parts are second to none.

I might looking into B process or something. Or might just but a 2007 Jussi pro model
K2 boot were amazing tho so that's good.
Thing is about an expert/aggressive level board is that you got to ride it hard or it will take you for a ride....obviously you got taken for said ride. I concur with Snowolf and keep it, keep riding it and it will force you to become a better rider...and once you become more aggressive it will be a fun board and in a way a more efficient board...meaning responsive...but you will need to be mentally on-point...cause if you are mentally checked out will buck you right off and punish you for your inattentiveness. Anyway ime with a highend board. That being said, I have yet to ride my goat 159 split but may take it up on this Wed to check how it runs on opening day groomers.

Not to go off topic, but i figure there is several billy goat riders in this thread maybe one can chime in.

How does the goat compare to trice. I want a board a bit more aggresive and stable at speed then my trice.

Both are aggressive charger boards, but the two major differences (other than construction) are:
  1. Goat is a much narrower board than the mid-wide T. Rice. As a result turn initiation and edge-to-edge is much quicker.
  2. Goat has slight setback which might make it slightly more stable at speed (it also helps with float in powder, but compared to the T. Rice that is partially offset by the reduced surface area).

Magnetraction is also more mellow on the Goat.

Goat is your answer, and so is mine, but most of the days i cant man handle goat yet. Im seriously considering Bataleon as my new board for Christmas BUT goliath or et or somethings softer? which size; stats: 210 pounds and 6.2ft.
I want something more of a contrast to my billy g which means that i want something softer because i already have a stiff board.

If you find that the pow float 'is not that great' with the Goat, you are going to have real problems with a Bataleon stick...

I have a 162 goat, and it made me a better rider. Allowed me to surf the pow, ride the trees, and hit the steeps with confidence. Got it mid year last year, my first year ever on a mountain

. Your much bigger than me and I don't find it hard to handle at all. Quite the opposite actually.

If it doesn't fit your riding style it ain't the board for you...... But maybe give it another chance as a guy your size should not be worn out from riding the 162 BG all day. something's not right.....

I guess i wanted a hard charging stick, i want the opposite, but i wont sell my billy cuz its good. The thing about pow, drop it because it wasn't really pow, more like dust on crust and it was my first day of the season.
