Exactly.



Excellent advice that I'm going to work on next time I go out. More deliberate and less analyzing.

I ride wide boards and I wear size 13 US.

My guess is the waist on the 160W is going to be too much for your 8.5 US boot.

I'd say go with the 158.

It really depends on the board. A directional flex with a stiffer tail generally performs slightly better in powder, especially if you are doing lots of jumps or tricks that require landing.

I think you'll be better off with the 164.5. At 260, 162 is the smallest deck I ride these days.

FWIW, I'm 240 and 6'3 with a size 13 boot.
