Skunk Ape or TRS?

I can't decide, based on what would suit my body dimesions, on the Lib-Tech Skunk Ape or the TRS.

I'm 6'3", 175lbs and my boots are a size ten. I would be getting a 157'. Based on my dimesions, would I need the wider Skunk Ape, or would the skinnier, lighter TRS suffice?

The Skunk Ape is a wide board. You don't need a wide board with size 10 feet.

No reason at all to go wide unless you think that you might go up 2 boot sizes this season

If you have done your homework and narrowed it down then go the TRS. Make sure you get the new one with the BTX

Definitely going with the BTX model.

I see you ride it as well.. How do you like it?

Also, how big are your boots.. mine might be a 10.5, I'm not sure, I'm at work.. I fucking hate toe drag, so I would be rather ride a wide board than to risk the dreaded toe drag...

Its new for me this season so I havent got it on the mountain as yet.... flying out of Australia next Friday for Vancouver so not long now....

The TRS BTX 157 has a 25.3 waist width on it. I rock a 10.5 US boot with a bit of a duck stance, you should be fine i reckon.

Right on.

You don't happen to have Union Force bindings do you... if so we would be twins.

Nah gone for the Rome Targa's for the adjustability. Have heard nothing but good reviews on the Forces though. They get a good wrap on here!

Enjoy your new stick
