I'm 6'3" and weigh a hefty 220lbs. Not your typical snowboarder, and a big dude. I love to carve Pow and hit some tree runs here and there, I just love carving down the mountain, but always hated the fact that my 13's would drag. My first "real" board was a Capita Bartek 164 and I loved it. I rode a Never Summer Legacy 166 and it's a great board, but it wasn't a Capita. It just feels good,fits my vibe. Capita gets it.
