Matt GStaff: Hey Mike,

Thanks for reaching out with all of your questions. There is a board category for the type of board you're looking for. Generally it's called All Mountain Freestyle and they usually have a Directional Twin Shape (either twin shape with setback stance or directional shape with centered stance).

Camber or Hybid (Rocker/Camber/Flat combinations) will be best for your terrain preference.

With your weight you fit within the weight range of most boards ranging from 151cm-160cm, but would fit best on boards ranging in length from 154cm-158cm.

Being that you have size 12 boots I'd highly recommend riding a board with at least a 25.8cm waist width.

Here's what you need...
1. Direction Twin Shape
2. Camber/Hybrid Profile
3. 154cm-158cm Length
4. 25.8cm+ Waist Width

Below are my favorite boards that fit all the above listed specs (random order). Let me know what you think..

157cm Rossignol One Magtekn Midwide - http://www.the-house.com/9857roomm13zz-rossignol-snowboards.html

mike h: hey matt i really liked the Salomon sight wide snowboard! the colors are nice and graphic. i have a question though would there be like anymore ride snowboards or k2?
if not im totally cool with it.
oh one more thing what is the difference between the 2013 Salomon sight wide snowboard and the 2014 Salomon sight wide snowboard?
thanks! :) Jun 25, 2014
Matt GStaff: Hello again Mike,

The Salomon Sight Wide board is a great board with an awesome hybrid profile. The only difference between the 13 and 14 Sight Wide is a the edge tune...they are pretty much the exact same board.

On the link I provided there are 12 K2 boards and 20 Ride Boards... of those these are my top three picks form each company.

- 155cm Ride Machete GT Wide
- 154cm Ride DH2 Wide
- 154cm Ride Manic Wide

- 154cm K2 Hit Machine Wide
- 155cm K2 WWW Wide
- 155cm K2 Brigade Wide Jun 25, 2014
mike h: would k2 www not be for me?
because if so would you recommend ride machete gt wide or Salomon sight wide oh and is the edge tune better on the 2014 because if not i will just stick to the 2013 because the graphic is awesome and colors hahah Jun 25, 2014
mike h: hello? Jun 25, 2014

Matt GStaff: Hi again Mike,

If you're going to be riding size 12 boots this year it would be a really good idea to get a wide board. The more you catch your toes and heels because they hang off the board, the more you're going to fall.

Check out the 153cm GNU Carbon Credit wide, it'll be a better option for you...
