Default Ride "Profile" What is this board good for?

I have an opportunity to buy this board, a 164, for $100 with
ride bindings. Is this a good board? What type of riding is it
for? Would it be suitable for a 165 lb man?

Bob, Its not in their 2003/2004 catalog so I can't help you with details
on it. Must be an older board. Search on EBAY for it and see what details
are listed. People usually pull those from the brochures.

However, as long as it isn't beat to sh*t, $100 is a good deal for any
board with bindings. Heck, if you get a better board some day this could
alway become your rock board or you can turn around and resell it.

The board's weight range is likely within your weight, but you may get
along better with a 155. I'm 6'2" at 185lb+ and I ride a 164.

So, not knowing your skill level or board needs, I'd pass on this long stick.

I went for it. Turns out, I can take it back within 7 days if I
don't like it. We'll see this weedend.

I had a Profile.. till it got stolen :-(

Awesome, mid/hi-performance board if somewhat unforgiving and rigid.

164 will be BIG for you!!! It's a LOT of stiff plank for your weight, and
unless you've got a decent set of legs on ya', you may find it a burden
doin' anything tight (trees, moguls etc.). Having said that though, and the
fact that it's several inches oversize for ya, I reckon you'll LOVE it as a
big Powder board!!!

Bounces over or through slush and chop... but will grab an edge instantly if
you get too sloppy on any ice/hardpack!

Ridden hard though, give it heaps, and it will hold onto ANYTHING. Not for
the first-timer or faint hearted.

Enjoy.

Thanks for the comments. Our training director, after a clinic
session, told me to KEEP the board. I guess it's made a positive
difference to my riding. You're right about the edges. I caught
edges several times the first couple days on it. I do have a bit
of a problem getting it to carve cleanly. Maybe I'm just not
heavy enough to load it sufficiently, or maybe I just haven't
figured the board out yet.
