looking for a dedicated powder board
 
Plain and simple just looking for a board that i will only ride in deep powder. From what i heard i should go long and wide. Was thinking about a NS Cobra X 163 but would like to spend a bit less since i would ride it more then 5 time a year. Any suggestion on a good board for powder.

All fairly cheap powder boards

If it were me, 47 Powdersnake or that crazy short and wide YES. Short boards in pow are dumb amounts of fun.

I would say a NS Summit or a Smokin Pinnr. Both great pow boards

Bataleon camel toe, hovy and goat. Depends if you just want it to float or also look like a pow rocked IE. swallow tail and huge nose. Direction twin will be more versatile, but something like a fish will be funner. Honestly, going fast enough anything will float.

Aaaaaand /thread

I have a charles slasher and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made.

Cheap.
Looks like a snowboard.
Still rides well when everything is tracked out.

The Cameltoe is next on my list. I want one of them weird cock shaped powboards and LOVE TBT.

Jeez there are a lot more options then what i was thinking. Based on the price alone I'm thinking about going with the Charlie Slasher. I really never even though about getting a dedicated powder board and my reason to do so is that i have been spending more and more time in deep powder with a bunch of skiers. They are really comfortable in 3+ feet and I was starting to have issues maneuvering and if i fell i would be completely immobilized. So i really just need a board that will keep me up and moving in the deep stuff. So from anyone with experience does the Charlie Slasher still seem like a good bet?
