I'm with you on this one.
Powder days are the absolute best days, I choose longer & even more pow specific.
I have no problem sacrificing shit days
So my pow days are mind blowing

f00bar: thanks I thought it's a weakness of mine to be unable to post short answers and always write books to express my thoughts

In an internet world of 5 word responses that more often than not leave you with just more questions your responses are almost always nice to read and greatly appreciated.
Sorry for your loss! (World Cup)

It would seem to me that once you get to a relatively small amount of deep (6-12"?) it just becomes a matter of preference on how you like to float.

that last post helped, I will go for the 161

BTW: I've been insecure if going with the 158 or 156, hubby was thinking to and fro if getting a 164 or 168 for two aspects: agility vs. float in deep. (And yes, it's kind of splitting hairs as the FS isn’t a very agile board anyway and it floats great anyway)
He chose the shorter thinking the deep days are rare so he can easily sacrifice a tad of float for these rare events.
I chose the longer one thinking that the deep days are rare so I absolutely don't want to sacrifice a tad of float for these rare events

Neni, I usually ride 156 gnu carbon credit and 159 dirty pillow and sometimes if I'm lucky I get on my sons 151 lib tech Trs.
We all ride Goofy in our household ( don't know why ) stance + 15, 44 cm, +15
