This board rocks. I have ridden the past 2 years models, and I couldn't be happier. I'm 6'1", about 250, and I've been riding the 157. It performs well all around the mountain, but is a bit too soft for super high speeds in cruddier snow. This problem could be alleviated for me personally with a little bigger size, but when it comes to park riding, or turning the whole mountain into a park, the 57 is on point. I can ride deep pow, carve on groomers, and hit small to medium kickers with out any problems. I don't hit any jumps bigger than 25 feet, but I could imagine at my weight, this board might be a bit squirrelly! This year i'm going to try a 159 for a little extra umph!
