Hi,
new to the forums looking for my first splitboard :D
Im an active back country snowboarder using snowshoes in northern Norway(Lyngen alps) and certain places in Sweden. I current ride a 62 Head intelligence I.ct that I bought used last season but it does not fair that well in deep snow. I have been very interested into getting a splitboard specific to powder. Where I ride there arnt many trees (none to be exact) but I do like to do sharp turns and would like a splitboard that is versatile for when i travel etc... Ive been looking at the prior Khyber as a possibility and wondered about a suitable size. I am 175cm and weight approx 68kg at least 73-75kg with my gear/backpack and 10US burton. I was wondering if the 165 prior Khyber would be too long for me too handle.

Thanks for any advice and sorry for my rusty english. I am in the US atm studying to improve it and will be back in Norway this summer so the board would be for next season.

Bjorn Nyberg

Welcome Bjorn!
Personally I think bigger is better. I've ridden a 195cm all season. (I'm 182cm, 86kg)
Cheers!
