Luftschiff Too bad that it doesn't ship to places outside the US

shasty Just a heads up for fellow narrow footers.

Evo is having a massive sale on 2015 Yes Hel Yes, for $216 with cyber monday coupon (right now all sizes available).
Even though its a woman's board, it definitely looks like gender neutral, and should be stiff enough for all mountain use.


I've been waiting patiently for this sale and snagged this board with size 152cm. I weigh 140 and wear a US size 7 boot.

Never Summer is about one of the best boards for not having stereotypical chic graphics.

Not a single person ever said anything about the Lotus I was riding.
they were just being polite you cross dressing rider weirdo.

jtg Huh, just noticed that some Smokin ladies boards have some interesting dimensions.

Smokin Vixin comes in lengths up to 156, and all sizes have a waist width of 235mm. That's the longest board that I've seen that goes that narrow. Flex says 6 which is pretty stiff for their mens boards at least, and recommended weight is 120-170. The art on the LTD version doesn't look great, but it's not extremely girly.

true twin CTX with magnetraction, guessing it rides somewhat like the TRS 148N but with more edge.

Vixin LTD.

jtg I got them to go super narrow on my Prior. Haven't ridden it yet. FYI, to get them to take enough off of an AMF 156 you'll need to opt for the $300 custom template option. The good news is once you're paying that anyway, they'll do pretty much anything you can dream up.

If you're dropping all that cash for a prior though you should really go longer than 156. At 190lbs you're gonna submarine that thing if you ever do find some powder. You can get them to stiffen up a shorter board, but there's no replacement for surface area when you need to float.

Phedder The overall shape looks similar to a Ride Berzerker, can get the 2015 in evo outlet for $320, 158 is 248 at the waist. Though If you've got the money for custom go for it!

Looks like i'm going to with the Prior AMF 156 - They provide some good customization options. I'll be able to get my board dialed in this way.

For those who are having a hard time getting that right fit you might want to check them out at Prior Snowboards and Skis

I'll try to provide a review this season once I get this board

OMG_MOVE Folks,

I'd like to get your expert opinions on what board I should proceed with. I'm one of those situations where I'm a smaller foot but not too small and not to big.

Specs:

Sex: Male
Height: 5'8
Weight: 190 lb
Level: Intermediate
Type: Mainly groomers, enjoy a mix of freestyle and freeride. Would like to work on carving and some switch riding
Location: East Coast Hard Pack / Ice
Current Board: 2013 Rossignol Templar 156 (Used since beginner)
Binding Angles: 15+/9-
Bindings: 2015 Burton Genesis Reflex Medium
Boots Sz 8 Burton Ruler
Barefoot Measurement - 259mm

I'm looking to get onto a new board. Also debating on moving up in size to a 158/159.

I'm finding it hard to find a board that has smaller waist widths, I tend to see an average waist width of 253 in the 158/159 range.

I'm in between on the following boards

1) Libtech TRS 159 - Has a waist width of 253, another forum member provided me with the insert width at the bottom measuring 260mm. So this leaves me 1mm short based on the BOTTOM of the board.

2) Prior MFR - 158 - Has a waist width of 248, radius of 8.5 and a setback of 25mm. The store owner provided a measurement at the front inserts of 257 on the bottom and 250 at the topsheet. Setback of 25mm might be an issue for what I want to achieve?

Which would be the better option for me? I don't know much about the Prior MFR and hard to find reviews as it is a smaller company. It's also twice the price as the TRS i'm getting is from last season. But i'd rather go for the better option.

I'm also open to any suggestions you may have for any other mid-flex All-Mountain type boards.

I look forward to your responses!

Thank you soo much!

Extazy Maaan. If I didn't have 3 boards already I wouldve've bought that. It seems like I am gonna demo lots of stuff next year)

Irahi I've been pretty happy with the Capita NAS since I picked one up. 242 waist width @ 153cm length, and no one would ever accuse it of being a noodle.
