dice hmmm! I can't see pic at office, but took a peak on my iPhone! Woohaa!! What is that??!! Nice grab.

Anyway, no woriies about teh 164.5 size, it wil probably be too much board at your specs. I'm 6'2 190 11.5 and it's a perfect fit. But even at that I was considering a 161 as more playful stick. So, you're good.

On teh other hand, I do want to clarify that there is no real difference in construction between the boards except for the blunt/pointy tip/tail. Core and all are the same. For me it's like riding a 157 of the same board, it will feel very different. Shorter, more manuverable and probably softer (due to my weight). But in essence, they are the same board.

Is that a 2011 TRice? I heard they made a special addition TRice with Seattle in the graphic, but I assumed it was similar to the other TRice with just a few seattle images worked in.

Send me a PM as well with more pics of that thing....including the base. I am so jealous right now, I love that thing. I just bought the 161.5 TRice for a great deal, but I really like that graphic!!

Nice work! Where did you buy that?

ShoeDog Thanks for all the input guys. Normally I wouldn't buy the same board in a different length but my local shop had a special makeup for its 20th Anniversary and the only two left were 161.5 and 164.5.

I went with the 161.5 and will post pics later.

161.5 Pros: weighs less
164 Pros: floats better

What's your take?

What's your boot size?

GorgeDad You didn't mention what type of riding you do. Leo makes a good point: when you go from 157 to 161, you change from the "blunt" shape to the "pointy." I ride the pointy version (161 and i'm 5'10" 180 lbs.) and haven't ridden the blunt shape so can't directly compare. i can't imagine you need to go bigger than 161.

I doubt the difference is extreme, but the blunt reportedly will have more of freestyle/park feel (though still not real soft) while the pointy is intended to be the powder/freeride version of this all-mt. board.

Leo Is this board going to be free? I really don't understand why you would want two of the same boards in different sizes... actually, I can see why. The 161.5 Rice is pretty much a different board without the blunted tips and wider waist.

I say go for 161.5. Do you find the 157 to be stiff? Keep that in mind before you consider the 164 because it's going to be even stiffer.
