Lets see...I'm 185lbs on a good day, riding the 156 with large Burton Malavita bindings, new 686 New Balance Boa 580 Boots size 10...Boots way to stiff for the fun loaded in this board. Switched to my DC Judge boots today and the combo was sweet as honey. This board is slightly forgiving has the right amount of flex, pop, and holds it's line at high speed run ins. If you love to huck off everything and hit jumps then this board is for you...Not much work in getting this board to stay under you. Way to small for powder higher than my ankles...but that is not what I bought it for!!!
