I am riding snowboard since 8 years now and would like to get a freestyle board. My current board is a Burton Baron 167. So quite big for park action. My problem is that I am 6'3, boot size 12 and about 210-220 lbs (equals 95-100kg). I would like to get a board from Lib Tech or GNU with magnetraction.
My to options so far:
GNU Riders choice MTX wide 158 or 162
Lib Tech Dark Series MTX 161 wide
But my concern is my weight. Lib Tech says about the appropriate weight for the Dark Series 135+ ... is that in kg or lbs? GNU doesnt have any weight informations in their board specs at all...
What do you think about the weight issue? Is 158 to small? Will I feel a huge difference when I reduce my board lenght just 5cm?
