Default Length???

Hey all!

Is it crazy I want another 168? I have been rising 15 years, I am 6'3", 205 lbs and am an expert rider...like to go fast with as much stability as possible. I mostly freeride. I don't get a ton of air these days since some serious injuries so the added stability helps. Anyway, some people think getting anything bigger than 164 is insane. However, I think 168 is perfect for me and my style. Thoughts???

I am not familiar with NeverSummer. I was riding a Burton Canyon 168 but it is old. Is it wide?????

Even on groomers or jumps....I still feel better on anything over 160 than below. I think a lot is my height and weight and I like the added stability.

=O Never Summer is a company based out of CO, and they build tank-like snowboards.

Thanks! The Titon TX would be better for me because it is wide. Maybe I'll look for a left over Titon TX 169. My local shop carries the Rome Flag which seems sweet but not NS.

Rome makes some top notch boards too. I have a Flag and it is stiff as hell. I haven't ridden it yet, so I can't tell you exactly how it rides, but it's just a wide Rome Anthem, for reference.

I have a Rome Anthem 158 for the short snow around here and a 164 Design for the stuff out west. They both work perfectly in their respective places and I don't think you could go wrong with any Rome board.
