Awesome - thanks for the tip.

Most of the time is spent in mid-atlantic/WV with at least 1 to 2 trips west a year (the 2 this year are Tahoe and Big Sky).

My boots are K2 T1 double BOAs in size 12. Are these too wide for an SL if my stance is duck with an avg width?

Any insight would be helpful before heading to the local shop to check the boots on each board.

Thanks.

SL is available in 158 if you plan on doing some freestyle that would be a better size otherwise 161.

TX_ I grabbed the Legacy 159, with a good discounted price.

Thank you all for helping me out!

dreampow +1 for the SL over the legacy and the 158.

You might need boots with a reduced footprint but most have that now.

Also If you get to ride tons of deep pow the 161 would be better. If powder is more an occasional thing and its 30cm or so the 158 will be ideal.

I am 175 and I ride a 157 proto in 40cm or so of powder with no problems.

Thing with powder is the more skill and experience you have the shorter you can ride.

Massimo I'm 6'1, 175 lbs and i have a heritage X 156.....for example....

TX_ Thank you all for your replies. I want to play this safe so I'm planning Legacy because I heard the overhang issues about 11.5, plus I can't find the SL (at least with discounted price) right now at my size. And the boot is K2 Maysis, I don't think it has any reduced footprint.

I'm more concerned about the length. So 159 you say?

P.S.: Massimo I'm from one of the eastern European countries.

SnowKanin +1 for the SL. You should be just fine with that over the Legacy with your dimensions.
