@ 220 you're gonna want extra float.
5 cm is absolutely nothin', not at your weight.

Unless it's for groomers.
thx for the advice TT. i was just worried it will feel a little planky. it will most certainly be a quiver board that will last a life time, only for the hero days. i definitely know how to throw a big board around. i learnt on an old 168 burton canyon, planning on turning it into a fish . 170 it is then

Shreddy Krueger looks real nice.
I got a monster pack of snowboards, fuckin' thing weighs about 120lbs, goin' to New Jersey. To a dude who just happens to be an Arbor rep.
Hmm....I need to pull some strings somehow.

Well, it's not a ridiculously over sized shovel nose or anything, but it was plenty wide enough to float my fat ass. Lol! Seriously though, I found it to be plenty wide for a pow board.

how is it in the trees and on open terrain?
It's a tried and true retro shape. The wide nose, combined with the short fish tail, parabolic rocker, and massive setback makes it so hard to sink. It's also pretty light, so it's plenty easy to throw around. I had a blast riding it on a great pow day at Stevens pass. It's plenty responsive for tree riding, and slays open terrain just fine. It's a pow board through and through.

highme I'm pretty full up on boards (and have an Ultra Dream) so I have no need for one of those Shreddy Kruegers.

But since that's my last name, I'm pretty much compelled to buy one.
