wrathfuldeity For your size ya might look at some rad air and libs;. e.g., tanker, grocer, doughboy. I'd imagine ur going to want some float in that utah poo. I'm 175# and last year in the pnw heavier poo a 162 wasn't quite big enough so trying a 166 this year.

63 lbs in 4 months? That's great. I'm very interested in what program you're using. PM any info on this, if you can.

Well, if you are not going to park, but all mountain, powder days, and some jumps in a powder the longer board would be better anyway.
I just can say about me, I'm 100 kilos(220 lbs), and a bit less then 2 meters high(dunno how much in ft). I got NS Legacy-R 174. I can say that it on a longer end for me, but it's so fun to ride. It's not superstiff, but i can ride very fast without a scary. I can do a 360(i even did 540 two times a life =) and ride it in a deep powder with a centered stance.

I mean, if you lose weight till 200lbs, 166-170 cm board, is still ok, once you won't hit the park. And you can keep that longer board(as i mentioned) for a some years.

BTW, the bigger question for me is, what do you(not PCHusker but all ppl here) call "all mountain". Because it differs alot in US and Kazachstan i believe =)

I consider something like
Ride Yukon 172 would be the best choice for you. (you mentioned couple of ride boards, i suggest you leaning to Ride)

PS. Juct checked that you're looking into freeride... Don't ever get a board that is not wide, and that is shorter then 165cm.

I somewhat agree. If you aren't hitting the park at all I'd try and maximize your effective edge a bit more. I'd give the 166w slayblade a try.
Thanks for the reply.. I'm starting to lean toward the slayblade myself, i haven't really found many reviews on the highlife out there...

NS Raptor or Raptor X
NS Legacy-R or even 174(i got that one)
Elan Vertigo 168(very stiff, but with your weight it'd be ok)
Unity Dominion (i remember they got 170 and 180cm decks)

Nivek I think the Slayblade will handle your weight the best.

If he can get 20% off an already marked down older year board, he could possibly get a great deal. I have no experience with the boards mentioned so Ill let the other guys handle that.
