    So I’m 6’7″ 240lbs. with a size 14 shoe. my resort board is a Ride Yukon 172 and it rips on the trails but is a PITA in the glades. I have read a tons of these questions on here but none have really been quite my situation. I would be doing alot of VT, NH riding and would need something shorter and more responsive but that can keep the nose up without destroying my back leg. Unfortunatly rocker tech is so new i cant find any size/weight charts for the rockered boards. Do you guys have any size/board recomendations?
    Thanks in advance for any help

    I would say get a 170cm Prior Khyber. Its shorter than your resort board but it has a long nose and 25mm of taper so it should be really maneuverable in tight spots. It should still be able too handle your weght too, the weight range says 170-235+

    Hah I’m 5′-4″ 140# and I ride a 170.
    Go bigger, way bigger. 180-190. Look at the Lib Skunk Apes.

    Thanks alot Rob that looks like it would definatly work not sure how I missed it. I just don’t have that kinda scratch right now was hoping for something a little less expensive. Breadbox thanks for the advice but I’ve never seen a 190 and would imagine it would be quite an experience taking that baby in the glades. 😯

    Tanker 200. Nothing says ballsy like 2 metres of snowboard in the trees.

    That was Pontus

    Sorry I didn’t catch the part about the glades in the first read.
    You could probably ride a shorter BTX board anyway, they’re designed to float better at shorter lengths.

    Kins191, I’m 6′ 1.75″ @ 235-240# I ride a 171 Mojo RX with no difficulties. It’s super responsive! My trees aren’t as tight as yours though.

    +1 on the Khyber. Yes, lots of money, but hopefully you can find (a solid) one to demo (although not in the east, I would guess) No knowledge of the Mojo-RX yet, but that might be a great solution too.

    Check out the Venture Storm or Euphoria. Both available in man sizes and various widths up to 27 cm..
