JBwrote a question about Gnu Riders Choice C2BTX Snowboard - Wide on January 23, 2011
I just started ride'in this season and I'm considering the RC W158 for my first board. I'll mostly in the east on icy conditions but get a few powder days when I'm eager to travel. I'm 6'-3", 185lbs, Size 12 boot.
What length would you all recommend? I've been riding a 160 (typical camber board) with good success but that's not available in the Riders Choice Wide.
My local shop here in Cincinnati has the 158 and 162 in stock and I'm ready to pull the trigger on one.
I ride mostly freeride, treeline type stuff is what I prefer. I'm not big on the park but I plan to hit some kickers when I get my skills up.
