Burton Custom wide 62 or 67?

So I've decided to drop some coin and get me a brand spankin new Custom and I need a little advice. I'm 6'4" and 205lbs so i'm fairly large, I've been riding for 6 years now but can't really decide on what size board to get, so I figured id come here to get some help. I ride Whistler and most of my riding is up glacier/alpine but the guys i ride with like to hit the park from time to time and although it isnt my favourite thing i like being able to bust in there. BTW, I'm currently riding a 157 and its just too small. So where to go, a 162 or 167? I'm just a little nervous the 167 might be a little long but i've never road a custom so who knows? anyways thanks for the help guys!

your ideal size is a 65 or 66, but honestly I think a 62 is to small. That's why I suggest the 67 since you're set on the board.


But then again I might be wrong, wait for input from other users.


take care.

personally me being almost the exact same size as you 6'5 210 i would recommend the 162. Although its not that much bigger than your previous board it will definitely feel bigger. I rode a 162 last season and didn't like how long it was for me, so i think the 67 would just be a boat for you.

I would go with burtonAvenger recommendation, he seems to be the member of this forum that knows the most about equipment.


I guess the 65 would be more of a powder board for a person your size.
