Kind of an old thread but I am looking at getting my first pow board and wondering if a Chuck Slasher 158 is too small for my 180 lbs. ass?

I ride mostly in the East so our powder days are friggin few and far between. Normally I'll ride a 157 for hard days and I have a 160 for more powdery days that works awesome.

I don't know if the "thing" with powder boards is, that you can ride them the same length as what you would normally ride and they just keep you afloat better, OR if you need to step it up a size.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

158 will be fine for you. I'm a little heavier than you and have a 164, but I could've gone with the 158. The new addition of the 161 is probably the perfect solution for me, but I have no complaints about my 164.

The Charlie Slasher has huge setback, massive taper, and that big old soft rockered nose keeps you floating no matter what. You'll be fine with a 158.

ditto wut Linville says....I'm at 180# on a 164...have never had anything close to a sink issue...if they have a new 161...I'd probably go that route cause a 164 is a tad too much

Yeah I got a 160 Lando this year and really feel like that is my size but I can't ride the thing switch for the life of me. It's weird. But the float is great.

Having never ridden a Pow board, I want to give one a try, but 164 seems crazy for where I live.

well maybe just use the lando...can't really ride a pow board switch...though I have done so with the CS on groomers. Anyway a pow board is for easy pow riding...just a right tool for the RIGHT conditions....have it set on my regular stance and angles but in the middle of the CS inserts....just stand up and cruise on the deep and even goes on the low angle...where as my other boards would be sinking under my heft.

I did end up getting the Charlie 164 and it's great for me. Even in the trees. I'm at about 180# right now and I would probably keep the 164 even if I had the option for the 161, it's close though.

Interested to know what bindings you guys are running. I'm a Union person myself. I would probably do something light on there maybe even a Contact Pro.

Also, any pictures you want to share?
