Okay I've been looking around and am pretty set on this board. The only problem being my sizing. I"m 6' at 210 lbs with 11.5 snowboard boots. I like to hit the park from time to time but only really play with kickers and jumps. Otherwise I'm on powder, groomers, or trees. Out of all your wisdom would you recommend the 161.5 or 164.5?

Kevin,

I'm 6'3" 205, and I used to ride an Option Supercharger 168 back in the day. It was great for powder days and steep groomers, but a little on the heavy side, not great for spinning at all. So, I got a Forum Team 160, and I like it OK, but it gets sketchy at higher speeds, and definitely can't handle pow like the Option could. I wish I would have gone somewhere in between the 160 and 168, which is right at a 164. My next board will be this one (T.Rice 164) or the Never Summer Legacy (similar board, slightly less stiff than this one, also a rocker) in the 164 range.

So, at your weight, I would recommend the 164. Just my $.02
