So pow decks are somehow sensitive to height?

I'm 70kg which is 154lbs and I've posted it on these forums before but I actually did a pretty big write up on a 154 Charlie Slasher here
Boardworld Forums | Hey drc13 . . .

Also a video of me riding it in Japanese Pow, excuse the poor riding first time in pow and trees!

Everything is.

You can justify anything, even a pow board. Heck, im just justifying the second one.

Dammit, I shouldn't have read this thread. There goes my Slasher desire overflowing again, and I'm too new and unexperienced to go building a quiver already....but I want that effin' board, with the 12/13 graphics. There, I've said it.

So IF I'm to use it in the exact same way (and place) as drc13 (=all mtn-powder), should I get the 158 or the 164? So far I've been more interested in the 164 but the turn radius is a little scary...

My stats
Height: 187 cm/6'2"
Weight: 84 kg/185 lbs in the nude
Boot: Nitro Team TLS 44/US11, no shrinkage tech
Bindings: Burton Cartel 12/13 L

Cool, thanks. Too bad that size just disappeared from where I had plans to buy it...

While we're at it, what do you guys think about the weight of the board? I know the original 2010 was considered pretty heavy, but has it changed with the later models? Thx

I certainly didn't think it was heavy at all. Keep in mind I'm not jumping but I noticed absolutely no weight increase on the chair or when riding. Seems to be very durable as well!
