I didn't realize it was your pow board. I just automatically assumed it's your girl's pow stick because it is below the Infinity. I'd definitely hop on that. The most interesting though is the Venture. A little drool here.

Smokin Pinner and Venture Euphoria are nearly identical. The venture is a smidge softer and the Smokin has magnetraction. Both absolutely epic when its deep. Nov and Dec pow days are a bit too bony to ride the venture inbounds but I almost prefer the Venture. the soft board is very playful.

I may look at a SL or Flying V at this point. Although, I'll actually wait till end of season to try and pickup a previous season's board. We'll see. I could consider selling my Evo as I may be a bit big/heavy for it now.

Just to add a little to this about the carbonium top sheet. I have been riding the proto ct myself the last couple days.

I was strapping in today while talking to one of my buddies and a young girl stood next to me and threw here skis down to step in but I guess she thought it was best to aim right for my board. Everyone cringed and had to turn away. Very surprised that she did not even mar the top sheet what so ever. Needless to say the carbonium hold up extremely well.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

From n.s`s site, Brady Farr riding the proto.



Sorry Leo, not trying to jack your thread.
Just thought this would be a decent place to put this.

Would 157 or 160 be a better fit for a 190, 6'3 frame with 11.5 boots!? My preferef ideal all mountain size is 164! But want this as my fun board for progressing at park, jumps, boxes and spins of the side trails! Just curious. Cheers...

I'm about your weight but 5'11". I'm on the 157 but think I would prefer the 160 for a less aggressive sidecut. With your height, boot size, and stated preference for a 164 all-mountain, I'd go with the 160. In fact depending on what boots you're rocking I might go with the 158 CTX for the extra width (although the 160 is not a terribly narrow board, so depending on what you're rocking you might be ok).

See kimchi, thats basically where I'm at too deciding what size I want in the Proto. I weigh a little more, about 205-210, 6'1", wearsize 11 Zoom Force (large boot, no shrink tech, much bigger than my 10.5 Burton AWOL's) and this will be my do everything board. I want to be able to tackle the whole mountain and even some pow when I feel like it... and be able to spend some days in the park working on my skill set there when I want. I'm torn between the 157 and 158 CTX. And the 160 is still an option too. I've heard of people riding 253 WW boards with 11.5 to 12 size boots ducked at my same -15 12 stance without issue. What do you guys think would suit me??

Preference. You have probably 9-10 months until this thing is available, I would just pick a size and not overthink things. I can tell I'd likely prefer a 160 but if I were "stuck" with a 157 i'd do just fine.

Im 200lbs and 5'10" and I ride a161 SL and it rides like a 157. The blunt tips on the Proto would make me think that you will be just fine with the 160.
