Is it true that if you buy a lib tech you should buy a little smaller than what you normally would ride. I was thinking of buying this board and need a wide but not sure what size. I weigh 175 to 180lbs.

I wouldn't. I think that they feel a little shorter on groomers because of the rocker. People say that you can size down and get the same amount of float in powder, which is true. But why not go with your normal size and get even more float and stability? In my opinion your normal size will feel more nimble and responsive than a camber board in the same size. I'm a believer in sticking with the same size.
