definitely willing to ship in the U.S. i need to check the price, but I'd probably be willing to cover the cost.

not sure if it would work, but if you want to try to do a google video chat or something, i can try to show you the board that way. also can take more pictures if you like.

It's mostly the width. I wanted a shorter board, but I think the regular is just to narrow.

I'm at 11.5 and the shop guys I talked to about it gave me a pretty definite "no" -- I haven't actually ridden the board yet.

Im at 180lbs. with a size 9.5 boot. You think this would be a good fit for me.

i hope somebody with more expertise than me will weigh in, but you're definitely in a good spot for this board. you can check the specs here:

GNU Snowboard Size Chart - 2012 | evo

the 159 is the longest that they make in the regular width and the shoe size is 9 - 10.5 (that sizing chart is a little different than the sticker on the board. you could probably go longer in a different model of regular board if you wanted something for pow or high speed, but i think this should be a nimble all-around board (unless you're super tall...)

yes, it would actually be a perfect fit for you as an all mountain board (leaning towards more freeriding/pow). I think 159 is a tad bit big for jibbing and park freestyle, but if your skills are good enough, it should be no problem.

nice! think about it and let me know what i can do on this end. not sure if you looked at the craigslist ad i linked to, but i want to make sure you know the board has this ding:



otherwise, i think it's pretty much perfect.

*edit: sorry, fixed the image.

You should jump at the deal because it is a steal.
