    Posted: Mar/22/2013 at 3:48pm
So I am shopping for a new board because i want something new and mine is three years old.  Im thinking bout the Never Summer Legacy in the 159 wide version, paired up with some union forces. I think it would be good for what i do, which is groomers, and a little bit of park. Im not big on rails so im not looking for a jib board. im always looking for natural features to pop off of, and i like to hit the jumps in the park. Im basically looking for something that is a nice all mountain board that is a little bit more playful than my current board, but isnt going to buckle off the jumps. From what i know already which is a bit it seems like a good choice. My main question is waist width the board has 264mm width, would that be good for my size 13 feet, that is one thing i don't know much about... Basically i wanted to know what you guys thought of the setup for what i want to do.
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

Based on what you describe your riding as, I keep thinking the Arbor Element RX would fit you perfectly but it is only a normal width model. Arbor makes a mid-wide version of it called the Roundhouse RX; same everything except the size.  The serrated edges will bite when you want to lay into your carves. The continuous rocker shape will satisfy your desire for playfulness, but Arbor makes a type of rocker that isn't so washy to ride by modifying their sidecut and the location of the edge serration. It has no stance setback, no taper, is medium-flexing, will float partly due to its reverse camber shape but mostly due to its sheer size, and should fit your feet and weight.

As for the Never Summer Legacy, width is only measured dead centre of the board, it's not always a reliable indicator of fit. In reality, boot drag will be also affected by how far apart you mount your bindings and how tall your bindings stand off from the board topsheet. With your height, I'd assume you'd be mounting your feet at least 62 cm apart, so even a smaller mid-wide board may fit your feet if you kept them further apart.

Thanks for the suggestion, ill definately consider it.the only thing i dont like is that it doesnt come in the 159 or 160. The 159 is the smallest i think i could go for an all mountain board, considering im 6'3 220lbs

as for my stance i think i ride +15,-9. my current board is a wide version although i dont experience drag to much, my toes hangover a little more than im comfortable. i get some when i really lean into the turns... but its not super bad but id like alleviate the issue.

At 100 kilograms, I'd really be looking at something in the 162 cm range or more for most brands. That much mass manipulating the snowboard will turn even make small stiff boards feel soft under your feet.
