|Supra||yeah, with your boot size the 163w would be good. I'm 189, 70kg but with a 10 boot, so similar|

|WoodsBar||Thanks for the replys, since i tend to freeride more then park and how unlucky i am with the snow conditions whenever i travel to snowboard. I think ill get a slayblade.Ive found a guy selling it for $400 on ebay and he ships to brazil =)|

|Triple8Sol||From the sounds of it, the OP needs the TD not Slayblade.|

I can only speak for the Turbo Dream. I had a 2011 TD. That board was effin nice in Tahoe powder. I was in knee deep powder and the TD was surfing like nobody's business. It's a fast ride too.
It's a damn decent board on groomers too. Not stiff at all so it's freestyle friendly.

|Listheeb21||Evo has the 11/12 Slayblade on sale for $305, so I'm thinking of grabbing one. I don't see a ton of powder so it doesn't really matter that much. I have another board for that purpose anyway. Thanks for your input!|

idk how big price is a factor for you, but I was about to find a K2 Turbo Dream from last season for under 289 im not sure if that is that great of a discount to you but i pulled the trigger
won't be riding it until xmas but the harshmellow is a cool tech, and the graphics are awesome

|Listheeb21||Is the Slayblade not suited well for powder? I saw one on sale and was thinking of grabbing it to replace my Ride Timeless and Yukon as an everyday board.|

The year the Slayblade came out it won the triple crown of snowboard reviews, with that said I ride a 2010 TurboDream and honestly the board is so epic in the deep snow and trees I see no reason to replace it as long as I spend winters in Utah.
When others are sinking in and slowing down I'm floating ontop with my 157wide(and I weight 200lbs) but if I was still spending winters in the Midwest I'd be on a Slayblade but then again I don't play in the park or anything like that requiring board flex so that may be an issue....I rode Burton T6's for years so even the Slayblade was heavy and soft compared to one of those.
