If you're VERY serious PM me tonight because I'm already trying to get this closed off ASAP. Not trying to be pushy just letting you know. If this doesn't work out I still think a Prior would be a great option.

Jeesus crust sack up and go look at some boards at the local stores on west 4th. Don't take money or something so you can walk out and think about it. So many deals to be had. Otherwise your probably gonna be talked into something on here that you've never even seen before and may not be that great for your riding, or the local hills you ride.
If you look around here on the forum too long you'll probably just end up with the same deck everyone else on this damn forum rides.... fuck, like I do
Oh well, I tried

link to the boards. Based on the specs... I think the Avalanche series of boards by Virus (there are several other models they sell) have a normal width profile. I checked and the Burton Custom X 160 cm board is actually narrower than the Avalanche FR - so you should be able to use the same stance as you would a regular freeride board (provided you don't have size 12+ feet... but since you are 5'9" 130lbs, I thought that was unlikely).
PM poutanen for final details soon (like tonight)!

|protechjump||Sounds Great! Now do I have to change my stance at all? Do I need to set my feet close to vertical on the board or can I just use a regular stance without drag. Can you link me to the board? And are you part of the group buy thing? Thanks for your help|

|protechjump||They do look very stable on jumps and at high speeds. Do they need special bindings and boots?|

Wanting a board that isn't super narrow is a reasonable preference but the Avalanche freeride boards variants specs look pretty normal in width
FR 50 150 cm 24,8 cm 115 cm
FR 56 156 cm 25,2 cm 120 cm
FR 62 162 cm 25,6 cm 125 cm
FR 68 168 cm 26,0 cm 130 cm
FR 50 FLP150 cm 24,8 cm 115 cm
FR 56 FLP156 cm 25,2 cm 120 cm
FR 62 FLP162 cm 25,6 cm 125 cm
FR 68 FLP168 cm 26,0 cm 130 cm
Avalanche FLP „AFT“ Freeride 160 / 168 / 176 30,0/25,3/28,0 149 cm

|protechjump||I ride hard, don't get me wrong, but I'm looking for something that's not targeted for racers. Imagine doing jumps on one of those boards. Also, I don't want a thin board where I need to place my feet close to vertically to avoid drag. Do they have any board who's shape is similar to the T7? Or even wider like the Custom x? I don't head up to whistler much (3 times a year) so it'll be ridiculous if I use a freeride board on grouse or cypress. There's no room for carving like that. I'm interested in the group buy idea though. Thanks man.|

They are designed to be ridden hard though so not sure if it's what you're looking for...
