cjcameron11 ^^ yep that's what I was thinking!


Also yeah board size is pretty much an individual preference, I rode the 169 skunk ape and found myself wanting to down size a little and ended up with the berzerker 165W. I'm a lot taller than you and an 265. No issues with stability either

Not really. Size is just a matter of preference. I'm 6"1 and ride the Heritage 155. I may have clouded my opinion through my personal preference. The best way to figure out what you like is the demo days! You're at Tahoe, they must have demo days going on. Go up their, look at the boards, try them out and if you like them buy it.

AssassinMonLV You should take a look at Never Summer Heritage 160cm. It sounds perfect for what you're looking for. It'll handle the powder days, it'll will take those bomb runs easily, and will do really well on Big Kickers. I would also recommend looking at the Ride DH as well.

Clayton Bigsby I would look at something shorter then a 169, I'm 6'1+ 220 and ride a 162 and 160

Yup...thats why i bought two of the exact same model just in case something happens to one of them.

Personally after riding those boards i have switched to the Ride Berzerker and love it, really stable, great pop, awesome edge hold and pretty damn fast. It is a little narrower than the skunk ape and really rides completely different.
Thanks, I had not considered Ride yet. They seem like a good choice as well. Man....so many options....

I like the camber profile of the berzerker more than C2 and BTX it just feels a lot more stable and easier to pop off natural features, easier to land confidently too in my opinion.

Anyway thats my input, you should really do a fair bit of searching on this forum as this question has been asked a fair bit.
