Another request for board and size help, I know.
Ok so I think I Have narrowed down the Choice of snowboard to a NS board or maybe jones, but all the boards seem pretty similar for what I want to do. I am a bigger guy 6'2" at about 220lbs but I only have 9 1/2 boot size. I mainly ride in Socal at Big bear. but do make a yearly trip to tahoe. I have a 2003 burton Jussi 159, and a 2010 Nitro Pantera 160. both are ok but I am looking for something for more Hard pack Icy conditions that still is a little forgiving. Not really needed as much for Powder but maybe a couple of inches that we get locally. Not into going super fast, mainly just like to cruise down the hill carving back and forth. I will occasionaly do the smallest of jumps, but not really park.
So looking at the NS heritage in either the 160 or 162. The NS Premier F1 in 161 or 163. Or the NS Cobra in 161. I was also looking at the Jones flagship in around the same size but not if that would be right for me.
I looked at many other companys but nothing really caught my eye. I am close to 40 and like the more mellow graphics that NS and jones have as well as the tech.
Any help would be really appreciated as I am an intermidiate (advanced some days) and want a board that will really help me in most conditions I ride in.
Thanks in advance.
