RIDE YUKON vs. NS LEGACY

Ive been riding for about 5 yeas now and im a larger than avg. rider 6'4 250 lbs 13 foot. I really only cruise but am trying to work on kickers but the saying goes the bigger they are the harder they fall, I WOULD KNOW. I had my eye on the legacy for a while but recently caught wind of the yukon, heard good things and went ahead and bought it, its the 172. I ride a 168 '03 Forum Raider prototype as of last season but now im wondering if i made the right decision passing on the legacy for the yukon. Any feedback?

Yukon isn't a board really built for kicker I mean you're a big boy but 172 is gynormous for what you're looking to do. The new Legacy would be better for what you're looking to do.

Legacy will be better for that than the Yukon then.

You'll be running over people on really small boards in no time. Its a solid ride for freeriding and in that size you're going to cruise at high rates of speed.
