It's last years Infinite (2011)and is the version with pop-cam. Not the reversed camber version.
The seller said also the board was to long for me and the 159cm version was better for me. I have determined the lenght of the board via the size chart from Flow. With my 85 kilo I was above the weight range for the 159cm version.

when i started riding, i started on a friends board which was a 156 and thats what i like best...but also dont think its all that small being that i consider myself a freestyle rider, 50% park and 50% using the whole mountain as my park

using the calculator below, it puts me on a 156-158 for freestyle riding...

ya i wasn't trying to be critical, i was just curious. i have big feet and am tall so it recommends bigger boards for me.

Justin wow that seems really small to me for 210lbs, im 200lbs my park deck is 158w and my all mountain is 163w. what board do you ride at 156?

threej21 my only thoughts are that, at 188 lbs, a 162 is pretty big. that might be the only reason it would be hard to turn and manuever. For comparison, i weigh 210 lbs and ride a 156 board

joep106 Ok If you guys don't think my vacation would be a pain in the ass (literally and figuratively) I think I will keep the board.
Thanks a lot!
If there are other people who can help me, please do!

Justin i think you will probably be fine. you could get the merc if you like and it would probably work if you wanted but i think you will be fine.

joep106 I've teach myself the snowboard basics in an indoor hall because we haven't mountains in the netherlands.
After a couple of afternoons practicing (5 or 6 times) I went on a ski trip for seven days. I borrowed a board and boots from my cousin.

So I have one week real field experience

Justin have you never ridden before or is it your 5th time out? I own the board and like it alot. It might be a touch on the stiff side for a first timer but if you have been out a few times before you will probably be fine and you won't need to upgrade when you get better. The board is poppy, carves very well, and is damp.
