hey matt g the k2 www wide is an awesome board and i love it!!!! so is the k2www wide a good board for the park and slopes? because i want to know before i look into buying it but i really love that board because the design is rad!! and the board itself and all the features. so my question is would this board be big enough for me and will it be a good all round board?, meaning good for the park and slopes. thank so much for all ur time and knowledge.

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..

155cm Burton Custom Flying V Wide -

157cm Rossignol One Magtekn Midwide -

155cm Ride Machete GT Wide -

155cm DC PBJ Wide -
hey matt g,
would the arbor west mark midwide 157cm red be a good size and board for me?

hey I'm looking to buy this board,but i have a boot size thats an 11 and it is small so im lokking to get a size 12. and see i dont want to get the wide because i weigh 166lb and im 5.6 so i was looking into getting the 154 gnu riders choice 2014 snowboard would the be good or not?..... oh and i do all sorts of riding like the terrain park and the big slopes but moslty bigger slopes.

BEST ANSWER: 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...
hey matt g is there one like the hit machine but in a different color? because didn't really like the graphic on the hit machine that well nor the color. so wold there be a gnu,k2 or lib tech board like the hit machine just with a different graphic and color?
