Also do we get shorter boards than normal for powder?

Thanks
Have you actually done any riding yet? If not, don't worry about powder boards! Not trying to be a dick but you're better off putting the cash into some lessons and then sticking to the groomers this season before you go off piste etc. you'll have much more fun learning the basics first...

RickB loving my c.slasher 58, plan on getting a 64 as well.
Would love to try/get a hovercraft too.

gentemstick is based in niseko i think, maybe see if they have rentals. unreal powboards as far as i can tell.

I personnally ride a camel toe. If i was in Japan I would've went with a fish (does not meet your cheap criteria)
I owned a PYL. Great board but certainly not the one I would take to Japan. Burton Fish or Hovercraft are my picks.

ridinbend If your going to spend the money to go to Japan to ride, you should get yourself a pow deck. It will make the experience so much more fun even if you don't ride the deep deep lines.

wrathfuldeity If deep pow...get a pow board...your reg stick will not work. And riding pow is a different skill set than riding non-pow. I'm 180# and have a charlie slasher 164....generally unsinkable and rideable on groomed.
