I just started ride'in this season and I'm considering the RC W158 for my first board. I'll mostly in the east on icy conditions but get a few powder days when I'm eager to travel. I'm 6'-3", 185lbs, Size 12 boot.

What length would you all recommend? I've been riding a 160 (typical camber board) with good success but that's not available in the Riders Choice Wide.

My local shop here in Cincinnati has the 158 and 162 in stock and I'm ready to pull the trigger on one.

I ride mostly freeride, treeline type stuff is what I prefer. I'm not big on the park but I plan to hit some kickers when I get my skills up.

hey jb, well since ur not big into park and when u go into the park u will be hitting jumps u should look into a 162 it will give u a nice all mountain feel and a stable landing pad for those kickers. hope i helped man
