I am 6'3" and 215 lbs. I bought the Forum 163 raider as my first board this last season and I have been progressing pretty fast in the sport. I have size 13 feet so I need a board that is wide enough for them. I am looking for a board that has a little more maneuverability and pop, is also great in all around mountain freestyle board that can handle heavy powder, as well as, groomers, boxes and the occasional rail.
Would the Forum Grudge 162 be a good board to get into considering I have 13 feet, for my weight, and also what I am looking for in a step up board?
The grudge is on the higher end of the spectrum for Forum. It may be a little to aggressive for you. It depends on your skill level. The grudge is not a rail board, but it is still doable. The size is a good size for you, but maybe you should look at the Destroyer wide. This deck is awesome and you will be stoked on the feel and the shape of the deck.
