Where your gonna be riding?
I'm 280-290 lbs and rode a 162w in up to nipple deep pow.... No problem here..... I did buy a pow specific board for deeper days here this coming season though just to see the difference. I now have a pin tail 163. My 162 is a directional twin with a 1" setback though.
Do you find you sink at all riding that 162? im a little lighter than you 275, and i ride a 165 berzerker but haven't been in deep stuff on it yet, ive been seriously considering buying a 178 prior for Japan, and when i go to Canada, i just assumed that the 65 would be too short.
Actually i am going to buy the longer board, but just curious how you ride a shorter deck in the deep stuff.
my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
