yeah thanks for gettin back. im 6' 185. Been riding 10 years or so. I wakeboard, longboard, surf etc. so im brushed up for the season. This is my first nice snowboard purchase. seeing as Im in Indiana for school for the past 4 years its been harder to justify scrounging up the $ for that over the wakeboard. but Ill be midwestin it on groomers and park. ill be up in VT and out to CO this season so I plan on rockin some fresh powder. I'm thinking 60/40 freeride/park. and i wear size 12 boots. thanks again for the response. PEACE

With size 12 boots you should probably look into a wide board. I ordered myself a Legacy-R which is a wide SL-R (haven't gotten to use it yet) You'll like the bigger board in the colorado Powder.

Arbor comes with a 2yr warranty. You may or may not care, but they're one of the first companies to be really eco-friendly. Their whole line is designed/manufactured that way.

I had an Arbor Mystic last year and loved the board. Have also demo'd several other boards from them. I haven't tried NS boards, but I highly recommend Arbor to everyone. The Element is a board you'll love and keep for a long time. It's a great choice for an all-mountain board that focuses on freeriding and powder, and will still work for freestyle. Def not a park-specific board. Arbor has other ones in their line for that.

Interesting. Thanks for the info, I was not aware of their eco stance. always good to see people doing that.

I've never ridden either of them, but I did notice an Arbor Element standing on a rack at waterville valley and it looked _awesome_. Just sayin'

yeah its sexy as f**k. I feel like I might have more fun on the NS though. Seems like it might have more versatility. 155 or 158 is the question.
