I'll be at Squaw or Alpine Meadows 4/8-10. I just sent you a PM but I don't think you can send any until you have more posts so just check that you got my message.

It was fine on the steep, but I had to work to keep the nose up on mild slopes. As a general all-mountain board it is fantastic.

Where are you? I'd be happy to let you try mine if you are in the NE (or Tahoe in a couple weeks).

Now being in the market again I really want to try to get myself the best board possible especially a board that takes into account my foot size.

Body details:
-Foot size : 25cm (currently wear size 7 RIDE Anthem and i love them)
-Weight: 160lbs
-Height: 5 foot 9 exactly

I'm looking for a strong all mountain board that I can use to really charge down the mountain on. So overall something that is stable in powder and steeper runs but I do like to dabble around at the park .

Again I'm really glad there are people out there with the same problem as me! Thank you in advanced for any advice you all can share with me.

Argo Donek is another one that will make a board to spec. They have narrow boards from the get go too. Made in Silverthorne Colorado

Kenai Prior is a North American company to consider. With the Canadian exchange rate right now it's a great deal for Americans. Many of their boards seem slightly narrower than most manufacturers with normal specs, but for $150 they will also narrow any board up to 1cm. I'm hoping to order a board soon as I understand they have an end of year sale.
