Big foot rider, help me decide between 4 boards!

i'm 6'6, 175ish pounds, with size 15 feet. I am a pretty advanced free rider and mainly stay in the back country and groomed runs of Tahoe and like to go fast. I have my selection narrowed down to a few boards.

Ride Yukon 164 with a waist of 265

Ride Fleetwood 165 with a waist of 270 (is this too wide?)

K2 Podium 164 with a waist of 265

Never summer Titan Tx 165 with a waist of 268


I also thought about a Ride Decade 165 with a waist of 264.

All these boards seem to be about the same to me dimension wise and style. Which should i go with?

thanks for the help

You will destroy the fleetwood and decade they just aren't that great of boards for what you're looking to do. Yukon is pretty tits for what you're describing. The Titan TX is a beast you have to stay on top of at all times, you either ride it or it rides you, then eats you, shits you back out, then has sex with your girl while you watch and cry. The podium is an interesting board as its stable, has a 1mm taper and a longer nose but a centered stance.

alright then, im leaning towards the Ride Yukon, i found the 2008 model for only 300$ with tax. Is the K2 podium or the titan worth the extra couple hundred dollars?

The podium isn't going to compare, the Titan would though. The thing with the Never summer is you get a 3 year warranty on it which can be worth it if you kill boards.
