Burton Mayhem 09 Need Help deciding !!
 
Im new to snowboarding this year. I had gone 3 times this year and im deciding to buy my own board. I found a sweet deal on Burton Snowboards, Burton Bindings, Burton Boots, and snowboard reviews - Free shipping to U.S. for a '09 BURTON MAYHEM (159W). I am 6'1 200lbs size 13 shoe. Please tell me if this is a good match for me. Thanx

I'd consider the bullet in a 158 as well, but yeah the mayhem in wide should be good :D Just 159 is a tad bit long.

reading the board specs would I need a bigger board because of my weight 159 are ususally up to 200 so im at the end of the cut off.

My brother is 215ish and rocks a 155 hero :laugh: You're fine on a 159 imo. I'm 194ish off season and rock a 155 or 157.

Thanks for your help =)

Yup, unless you intend on doing only freeride (which it doesn't seem like it based on your initial board choice) you're going to want to be on the shorter end of the spectrum

I will do most freeride now just to get used to it and once i get better at boarding ill do more and more park
