zk0ot 158. Would probably be for some one closer to 180.

sclogger That would be too big imo. Maybe nice for a powder day. Sims is still a little big at 158. I run about 160lbs and 156 is about where I feel most comfortable on. 158 wouldn't be too much of a stretch, especially if your gaining.

will 158 be too large though? I'd rather hold off to get the right size

The fatbob will probably be a stiffer board. Poppy, heard to turn while going slow.
Burton k2 Snow board with Bindings and Boots

fatbob far right

vs

Sims Snowboard 158 w/ Burton Freestyle Bindings

edit: Believe there was a miscommunication i think the fatbob is 64 inches which is 162 cm...ouch, too big if this is the case right?

They ride nice?

Like I said I don't know much i just really want to end up with a solid board that i'll love to ride as my first board

Also what do you think of the size difference? k2 is 155 sims 158

I've heard wide for the shoe size but the dude who has the enduro says it comfortably fits his 12.5's without drag. He also said its great for riding switch which i do a lot, howveer upon seeing prices the fatbob is the more expensive of the two so i'm stumped.

My boot size is 11
