Return to softboots?
I am moving to Colorado next month, and figure it might be time to switch back to softboots (I hardboot, but my current gear is just good for groomed runs, to get a hardboot setup to work all mountain would be kind of troublesome).
Is there, anything out there that can support someone 225lbs, with a 25.6cm foot (~ 7.5-8 US), but with a 11cm width? (my 10.5 US shoe 4E doesn't contain my foot width)... with a board with an appropriate waist (in other words, a narrow waisted board, so my foot doesn't end up inbounds), but still has the length for my riding style? (160+) and supports my weight?
my 160 neversummer heritage 2009 with a 25.4cm waist and a 7.85m sidecut, is too wide for me. (the last model before they went rocker)
or am I effed and limited to hardboots? :P :P
I know the season in Colorado starts wayyy earler than in NY, and I'm pretty stoked!
The board needs to be stiff enough to handle high speed, laid over until my butt is sliding on heel sides, or complete eurocarves both wings, while being versatile enough for powder, trees, etc...
My naked feet must be right over the edges with no inbound for maximum leverage, and I prefer forward stance angles, I would say 30/15 or 21/6 or so, 21/12... whatever.
I have palmer riser plates too currently.
