Fun fact from a veterinary student:

Boars have the most voluminous ejaculate/kg body weight of any animal known.

1/2 a liter per load. That's 3 oz short of a 20 oz bottle of soda.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
So the phrase, "Men are pigs," may have been created by a hopeful guy.

Interesting.

I just picked up a 157. I'm 180lbs. I think the 154 would be too small.
What do you guys think?

Depends what type of riding you plan to use it for.

Mostly just resort cruising, some park, freestyle riding.

There is nothing stopping you from riding the 154 at your weight if park is your main priority but, I think you are better off on your 157, enjoy the season.

I just love these Japanese snowboarding threads. It is a dream of mine to make it there sooner than later. In the meanwhile, I will get stoked looking at your photos!

I noticed the dampening "unicorn" thingy too, as well as the X's near the feet.

I put the board on and did some 180's, seems to fit me well. So excited to try it out. Here's a closer shot of the topsheet surface, and how my 10.5 boots and large bindings compare (154). Sorry, I love this board. Have to post pics.

Doesn't sound like a very hard dream to realize, come on over.

I hope to get a lot more photo and video footage this year and I will be sure to post up some trip reports along the way.

Clearly those researchers have never met BA's pet unicorn...

Hi guys! First post!

I'm upgrading from my crappy Burton Indie from Decathlon. I'm pretty confident I want the Proto HD. I like speed, easy cruising, and I occasionally go through the park.

I'm 5'9, 140lb, size 9 boot. My indie was a 158, and I find it a bit unwieldy/slow. Should I go for the 152, 154 or 157?

Thanks in advance!
