vknyvz i dont know man they say longer boards are stiffer and goes faster and it's ok for jumping but not for the parks since they tend to be heavier, i changed my order from 161 to 163 anywho it's already done

I bought the Custom X 164. I am a bit on the heavier side and went by Burton's weight guide to choose the size. But part of me thinks I should have got the next size down.

bordsmnj find an old salomon "fastback". they still make it but they call it a "burner" and it is mellower version now.
you just told my story. especialy about being gone for ten years. i feel the marketing has killed real design in snowboards and in my not so humble opinion if it aint camber it aint shit.

Justin Of those 2 i would lean to the custom x with your shoe size, i think the blacklight is a mid-wide.

The arbor a-frame might be a good option.

Thanks Justin, your suggestions look like good starting points.

All the best!
