They have a 153 model.

For boots... well that really depends on the shape of your feet. I have regular width toes, but my ankles/heels are very skinny/narrow... and for that I *really* like Nitro boots. I don't know what boot size you are currently. You will really need to try them out (the website I linked to has free shipping and very easy returns with full refund).

Forget leaning back. I was centered and floating. Hitting the flat spots where I would get stuck on the A-Frame on purpose... that thing keeps moving. The first 6 runs were decent pow...then it got all chopped up. Needless to say that shovel like nose trashes slush effortlessly. Edge hold was good later, but condition worsened, started to snain and wasn't that fun anymore. Bumpy moguled slush is not that fun to ride.

Cant wait to ride it on a DEEPER pow day... and feel my legs last longer. very easy to turn and stop, not really nimble edge to edge since its width, but really easy board to ride.

Awesome! Sounds like a great board... but I like that nimble feel in the trees and think I was right in passing up on the Hovercraft for my personal style of powder riding (I like to do a LOT of turns in the powder).
