Funny, I really wouldn't consider a board under 163.
BWayne - How do you like that Bataleon Jam? I was looking at getting the 161W basically for just hitting jumps. I really want a Riot, but don't want to go down to a 159.

I'm with TLN, the boards being listed here are super short.


Me:
6'3" 230lbs 12boot

Ride Highlife 163w - kinda wish it was longer. I got it because I wanted something more agile, which it definitly is, but with the shorter edge and rockered tip you defenitely loose some edge hold on high speed carves. Great overall, but not sufficient for a real powder day.

Nitro Pantera LX 168 - Ridiculous.

Venture Euphoria 168 (28cm waist) - Now that is a powder machine.

Various other mid level boards 163 to 165's.

You won't get much problems with extra 3-4cm, but you get alot of fun with it.
May be i'm freeride and carving rat, so i'm voting for longer one


I'd go for undertaker 195 anytime if find it =)
How about a 198? This is pretty much free, might not be by the time you get it though. I'd get on that as quick as you can. It ain't gonna last long for $100.
Good luck.

Rossignol undertaker 2 swallow tail 198

I just wish you were a tad closer to me

Not trying to change your mind but I'm 6'2" 240 and I ride a 160 custom x and love it. I also have a 152 hero which is excellent. I hate riding boards above 165. Even though the difference is an inch or two haha.

Believe it or not my park board is a forum street dweller, 149 I believe and my pow board is a burton no fish.

looks like you're right.
BTW: 164W Custom X have a suggested weight range like 170-210lbs. so it works best with 190lbs.
Do you still think that with 265 you can stay with 163-165?
