    Stink up the snow with a Skunk Ape!

  • Preach!

  • graham gaston

    I am about 170 lbs and 6″ 2′ and I have a 2016 skunk ape size 165 but I don’t know if i’m too heavy for it am I?

  • Definitely not too heavy for it!
    We don’t recommend the 165 for anyone weight less than 145 lbs, but you could weigh a lot more than that and still ride it without any issues.

  • Ivan

    I currently ride a wide board. Boot size is 11.5 and i’m 6’2, 190. Am I too small for the wide? Feels like it’s built for 200lb+ riders.

  • Robson

    Hi, Im 6″3′ and I weight about 230 lbs. Guys in the store recommended me this board but am I too heavy for that?

  • Mihai Mincu-Stoica

    Hello for a 157 snowboard, and a rider 1.90 cm high what stance do you recommend on this board, for centered lets stay, even if it’s still a bit back?

  • Whatever feels comfy and controlled–there’s truly no right or wrong stance.

  • Nope! This is our best board for big humans.

  • Hi Ivan,
    I don’t think you’ll have any trouble riding this, but if you’re looking for something not quite as big/wide/stiff check out the TRS 157 or 159MW or the T-Rice 157 or 161.5.

    They’ll be a bit narrower and offer a more nimble, agile feel.

  • Donna

    Hello, I’m looking to replace my hubby’s EXTREEMLY old Burton Custom this year. He is 6’3″, 190 pounds shoe size 12. His favorite thing to do is try and kill me in the trees in search of powder. I’m looking for an all Mountain board that can handle a bigger guy and still be responsive in the trees. Skunk Ape Wide or T.Rice pro wide?

  • donald

    Hey there I’m 6 foot 4 and 240 lbs, and love boarding specifically in powder and trees and Im just curious what board size is the best fit for me. And also if the skunk ape is the best for for that type of riding? thanks!

  • Brendan Ortiz

    i’d shoot for 169, or 172. I’m 6’6″ 300 riding 172 and 180 daily.

  • Scott

    I’m 6’7″ 255 coming from a 167 board. I ride Tahoe. Through the trees mostly hunting for powder. When there is none I ride groomers and kickers in the park. Should I go 169 or 172?

  • Greg Wujkiw

    Is it okay to run this board with a centered stance sometimes? Or is it best to always use the 1/2 setback? Curious if its direction between the contact points or a directional flex.

  • The inserts are further apart than 1/2″, so it might be tough to get it 100% centered–but it’s definitely okay to do!
    Though if you’re looking for a wide C2 board that happens to be a true twin, check out the T-Rice Pro–we built it in wides for the first time this season!

  • If you love your 167, I’d recommend the 169.
    But if you’re looking for more board, the 172 will provide!

  • Either one will be fantastic!
    The Skunk Ape is a bit more free-ridey, because it is setback–so he might find it to be a little more floaty.
    The T-Rice pro is a true twin, so a bit more freestyle-friendly.

  • Martin Capps

    love my 2012 168. Thinking of an upgrade. As a 6’3″ 230 agressive rider who loves speed and powder. I’m torn between the HP165w and the standard 169w SA. Any suggestions ? I think I read you could go slightly smaller with the HP

  • TheJunkie

    I’m 5’11”, 165-170 lbs. Though I have been riding for quite a few years, I did it sparingly and I’m nowhere near advanced. I like some stability for speed and carve, and be able to handle ice and slush (and not totally suck in powder when I actually find it) I’m probably never gonna do park, but I do ride switch and jib a little bit. I was looking at T.Rice and Skunk Ape. Am I looking at the right boards? Do I want a directional twin or true twin? And should I stick to 156ish? Thanks.
