|DC5R||That's one hell of a buy OP. I'm fairly certain you'll enjoy the board.|

warning! The board is too big and you could be risking your life.
Quickly mail it to me and I will send you my BSOD. The roundhouse is a bad ass board and i really miss mine. I had 167 that was way too big for me and was a bitch to turn but when it did I could feel it pop out of turns. You will dig that board if you are not a light weight. Where can I get a 99 dollar arbor?

|Talusmonkey||26.8 waist. The Element wich was considering is 25.4. The Never Summer Premier wich I was looking at as well is25.6. I originally bought the Roundhouse to resell. 99.00 was just too good to pass up. I started thinking why buy one of the others at a much higher price. The Roundhouse is what Im looking for, just a half inch wider. More input and opinions would be great. Keeep it coming.|

|BurtonAvenger||Unless that thing is like 28 at the center you'll be fine. I've been rocking 10's on regulars, mids, and wides for years you'll be fine you'll just have a bit more surface area.|

In my experience, yes. You would lose toeside edge control (slower edge to edge, harder to turn) because your toes are too far away from the edge to exert direct force.
I find that boards that are too wide feel a LOT stiffer than they actually are, so I tend to ride softer boards in order to compensate for a wider waist (I have tiny feet, so all boards are too wide for me).
You could ride the Roundhouse of course, it would just fee more like a door than a snowboard. Beautiful deck though.

Picked up a nearly new Arbor Roundhouse 163 for 99 bucks. I dont need a wide as I have a size 10 boot. Will I lose alot of performance going wide when not needed? I ride a Forum Lander 161 and love it.
