Second to none
I ride the Summit in a 172, this board loves to be taken steep and deep. It is by far the greatest powder board I have ever ridden. You can charge any chute at mach speeds with this baby. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a powder only board.

i'm 5'11 155 lbs without gear. what length neversummer "summit" would be appropriate for me? i've been riding for 9 years.
well u would probably be best with the 161cm good for your height/weight
For a dedicated powder board, 161 would be a bit short. A 167 will probably be much better.
Whats a good size for a board like this?...
Whats a good size for a board like this? I'm 5'10", 190lbs, average build. I heard its best to get a really long size for a powder board... which makes sense. Should I go with the 172cm? Any opinions or comments?
I am about your size and i ride a burton triumph 169, its a really similar board, and it rocked the powder. What you need to ask yourself is what type of pow you are going to ride. If yoyu are going to hit the steep and deep, go with the 172. You will appreciate the extra float, along with some better rooster tails coming up behind you. However, if you are going to be rocking the tree scene, take the 167. If you get stuck, which happens alot in the trees, it will be easier to get going again. Also, lower swing weight will make for tighter, quicker turns to get around that unexpected stump.
