Thinking about getting a Skunk Ape, but I just can't decide on the size. I'm thinking about either 161, 165, or 169. Leaning more towards the 165, but I wanted to see what other people thought.

My stats:

6'1"
250lbs
sz 12 boots


Basically I want something that'll give me lots of float on pow, but not feel sluggish on the groomers. So any opinions on what size I should go with?

The 161 will feel more responsive to you on the groomers, but the 165 should float better in pow. You're gonna have to pick which one is more important to you. Personally, I'd go with the 161, since every board will float at least a little if you know how to ride it.

I'd go 165. I'm 2" shorter than you and quite a bit lighter and my powder stick is a 164 and it's not too bad for me to throw around. I've been on a 169 and that was a completely different story.
