  • Richard B.

    Hi Team,
    I am 193 cm and 115 kg with shoe size 12, can you please help me which model to buy? 170 UW or 169 W is enough?
    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi Richard,
    With size 12 boots you’ll be fine with a wide board–no need for the ULTRA.
    Here’s our new board finder, there might be some other Wides you’ll be stoked on!:

  • K. Dupas

    My husband is 6’5 and 300 lbs. He has a 15 size shoe. Would you recommend this ultra wide? Thank you.

  • Brendan Ortiz

    i’m the same size, Ultra wide is a great board, could be a touch longer but still really fun.

  • Honza Rzyman

    Hi guys,
    I have 196cm and 118kg. I have chance buy not used 165W skunk ape HP c2btx, model 2014 and 2015 for same price(10K CZK). It will be ok for my body? And is there any differents about green deer skunk 2014 and red bear 2015, only graphic? Thx for answer 😉

  • Yes it should work just fine for you!
    We haven’t changed this board much in recent years, so it should be nearly identical to this one.

  • Zach

    Hello – I am 6-3, 210, with a size 15. Should i go with the ultra wide? I fear the regular wide isnt going to be wide enough for a size 15…..thoughts? THANKS

  • Fred

    My 18yr old son demo’d and bought a Skunk Ape last season and I taco’d my board on our last trip so I’m looking at a Skunk Ape for myself. I’m 6’4″, 250, athletic build. I’m older now but still somewhat aggressive. Been riding 20+ years. So I need guidance on choosing 169 or 172. I know that either will be fine but do you have any specific guidance? Mostly ride trees, sidecountry, off-piste, think the Hobacks at Jackson Hole. Leaning towards 169 unless you offer some compelling reason to go 172. Thanks.

  • I’d definitely steer you towards the 169.
    I think you could ride the 172 without any trouble, but the 169 will just be more fun and easy to maneuver…while still offering plenty of float!

  • Anthony

    Hello – I love the skunk ! I’m 5’8. 170lbs and I’m having a hard time choosing between 157& 161 cm …. Any suggestions ? I’ve been riding Colorado 5-7 seasons I’d say I’m advanced rider . Looking for groomer/powder/backcountry/bowls kinda board , I don’t do the park .. Any help would be much appreciated !!! Thanks ,

  • Dave

    Hey everyone. I’m really new at boarding, but I want to get a board that will work well. I’m 6’2″, 300 lbs, size 12-13 boot (pending on brand). Naturally, I would go with the biggest size of board, but I figured I would throw my dilemma out here to see if I could go with a different size. Not looking at the parks just yet, just hitting the slopes.

  • Yukhnovich Artsem

    Hi Lib Tech!
    When available 170UW?

  • mcs

    Hey Lib – looking for a new board and i’m torn between sizes. I’ve been riding for 20 years, i’m 6 feet tall, 195 pounds, and size 13 boot. My boot obviously limits me to a wide board. I’m looking for something fairly flexible and playful – i love to do butters, hit boxes, and shred trees. Not messing with any huge kickers. I currently rock a 158 rome mod rocker and i like it for the most part, but sometimes i feel like it’s too small when cruising at light speed. What do you think is the right lib and size for me?

  • Old Fart Grocery Shopper

    The 180 officially died in 2016? The accountants got control. Save your souls before it’s too late (and bring it back with plain old camber). Please don’t make me cheat on with you another snowboard company. Please.

  • nikita

    if I have 13,5 size of boots , I need 169w or 170 uw ?

  • JK27

    I’m 6’8 and wheigt about 210 pounds but only have a size 11 1/2 in shoes. Should I go for the 170 UW or 169W ???

  • Liontaryist

    I rode the 2016 Skunk Ape HP C2 BTX 161W last year. Just hoping this feedback helps others…
    I’m a seasoned rider (22 yrs) 6’2″ 350lbs size 12 boot. I spend most of my time on groomers, riding switch 40% of the time, high-speed butters, slashing, railing, some time spent in the trees, very little park (tabletops and boxes only)
    Pros: This is the fastest, most stable board i’ve ever ridden! If you wanna bomb all over the mountain, this board’s for you. I can say this board definitely helped me progress in speed. Floats nicely in powder btw.
    Cons: Riding switch doesn’t feel as natural as it should and theres just NOT ENOUGH POP! I want this board in a FULL CAMBER!
    If you want a super fast ride with unreal stability, this board’s for you. It’s just a bit of a wet noodle and too forgiving when it comes to my needs imho

  • Anna

    I want to give snowboarding. Let me know which to choose snowboarding for a beginner, for several seasons to come?
    My boyfriend weight 250 LBS, Height 6.2 and boot size 12.5

  • Varo Gonzalez

    Hi from Spain¡
    I´m 188CM – 82kg – size boot 45 (EU).
    Should i go for the 157W or 161W? (i usually ride with 159W in other boards….)
    Please help

  • Kelton

    Will the 170uw work for someone with a size 14 boot or will my toes still overhang too much.


    I ride last year’s model. I’m 6’2 195lbs with a size 12 boot and ride a 161W. This this is a dream board for bigger dudes and fits me perfectly even though I’m on the lower end of the “big guy” meter. It’s truly an all terrain board. Excels on groomers, but I’ve used it in the park and in knee deep pow by setting the stance back a bit.

  • Ian McCarthy

    does anyone know where i can get a 170uw? can’t find one anywhere

  • Cory

    I have last year’s model, however I have size 14 boots and ride the 161 size and I have no issues. Standard wide as well, not the ultra wide. Hope this helps.

  • Kaitlyn Schlegel

    I work at The House Boardshop (, if you shoot me an email sometime, I can check if we have one in stock as I thought we did…

  • Hello from Seattle!

    what type of riding do you like to do? if you like to ride park, i would say the 157. if you like to ride powder, then the 161.


  • Hello!

    the 170UW is made for somebody with a size 14+ boot. So yes it should work for you!


  • Vasiliy Melnichenko

    Hello there,

    I’m 92 KG – 192 CM with a 12 (US) boot size and I’m going to acquire 180W Skunk ape. Do you think it will fit me if I ride freeride basically.

  • Hello Vasiliy,

    I think the 180 would be too big for you. For somebody your size, a 161 or 165 would be the better size.


  • Oliver


    I`m from Germany, not so good in english… .

    How many “Contour” / variant are there from Skunk Ape 2017 from this site with this design front and behind?
    On this site stay: C2 BTX
    On other site: C2X

    Are there other, what are the differences?

    Sincerely Oliver

  • Dave Humes

    Will new board sizes come out and is there a way to be notified? I have a 162W for a 6′ 2″ 230+ rider with 13.5 boots. Board is okay for groomers, parks, and most anywhere on the mountain. But since the screw holes cannot be backed further on the board i stand pretty much in the middle of the board. I have to lean way back in any level of deep powder or heavy new snow. Wanting to get the 170UW board for my feet and keeping the heels and toes off the snow, but also getting a way to have that further back stance as needed for the front tail to ride above the snow.

    I keep checking every few days, but wonder if any new boards will be made this season?

  • Hello!

    With your size i think the 180 will be a bit to big. A better size for you would be a 161 or 165.


  • Hello Oliver,

    all our Skunk Apes have the same profile, C2.


  • Nate

    I’m looking for a board that’ll fit my size – 6’4″, 240 lbs, size 17 boot. The weight ranges I’m seeing on specs aren’t close to that. Will any of these boards work for me? Thx.

  • Hello Nate,

    For your boot size, you’re going to be best off on our Ultra Wide 170. for your height and weight it might be a bit tall for you, but with a size 17 boot, it will be the best for the least amount of toe and heel drag.


  • Jake

    Hi – I am 5′ 10″ and 155 lbs, with size 12 boot. Will the Skunk Ape C2 157 cm fit, or do I need to look at something else? Thanks!!

  • Hello,

    the 157 will work for you. If you wanted another option, the Travis Rice 157W would also be a a good board that has a similar profile to the Skunk Ape.


  • Neil Long

    I’m 6′ 4″ with size 13(US) feet, 230lbs.
    I’m looking at this board for pure charging about quickly, jibbing, playing in general and riding probably 50/50 switch – but essential aggressive freestyle, but more piste and sides. Will this board do the job or is the travis rice wide a better option – but that looks more freeride/freestyle and back country orientated. The switch riding is key as well.

  • Hello,

    The Skunk Ape would be a great one for you, its a directional twin, but if you move your bindings forward it will ride like a true twin. Being a guy of your size, if you’re looking for a board to do a little bit of everything on, the Skunk Ape would be great!


  • Matt

    Trying to set my 170UW up as a Twin. How much do I have to move the bindings forward? If I go for 0.5″ setback, the stance is not fully centered between the ends of the board. Distance between nose and inserts is about 1.5″ longer than between tail and inserts. Do I need to move the bindings 0.5″ or 1.5″ towards the nose?

  • Matt

    Come on, if anybody knows, then it’s you guys. 😉

  • Andy Spears

    I’m looking for recommendation for my son who’s 6’10 and wears size 15 boots. He’s probably only about 230lbs. He rides in Canada in Ontario (yes we do have skiing here) and Quebec and Vermont so it’s groomed, hardback, ice, crud etc. He’s a level 2 instructor. I’d be grateful for a recommendation. Thanks

  • Hello,

    Since the board is a true twin, but the inserts are just set back, the best way to go about this is to place your bindings in the general width you like your stance to be at. From there measure the distance from the center of one of the disks to the nose or tail, do that with the other binding. From there shift the bindings forward or back equally until you can find the sweet spot where both the bindings are at the same distance from the nose and tail while having the stance width you prefer.

    hope this helps!

  • Hello,

    For his height, weight and boot size the 170UW would work well for him. especially since his boot size is a 15 the ultra wide is going to help a lot with reducing toe and heel drag.


  • Matt

    Thanks for the reply. It does help indeed, especially the fact that the board is a true twin besides the insert’s setback. But it also implies that the setback is 1.5″ instead of 0.5″ as stated in the specs. Please confirm.

  • Bryan Sullivan

    I’m 6ft2 about 200lbs and gaining (f**k skinny get huge) have 13 size boots (lasso) and a very aggressive rider. I’ve always had a problem with my blade popping out with bodards that have a 26 waist from the boot being too big. I’m looking at that 170uw at hopes it will handle my style of riding. But a lot of forms and “calculators” say that 170 would be a bit too big. I think I’m going to go with it…but I wish lib tec or gnu had more 27+ waist boards at 165 or shorter even. People got big feet and wanna carve hard out here.

    Anyway, a any thoughts put there if they think this would be a good boards for someone my size, I don’t spend much time in the park but do like to shoot off an edge now and then, more jumps than rails

  • Sammy Reynolds

    Have they said this would be a good board for you?

  • Sammy Reynolds

    I am 6′ 10 and about 220 with a size 15 foot. Would this be the board for me? I do all mountain and once in a while spend time in the park, but rarely.

  • Bryan Sullivan

    I haven’t heard anything yet, I think I’m going to go with this one though. I need a wide waist

  • Damarcus James

    Definitely go with the ultrawide! your rider ability will be able to handle the bigger size, and your feet will thank you when youre laying down carves to your chest!

  • Damarcus James

    You will be stoked on the 170uw, your feet will know what it feels like to ride a normal sized board, it will make all the difference in your riding! This IS the board for you! When this board was designed it was made for guys like you in mind!

  • Damarcus James

    What is the co-ex base? Is it like sintruded?

  • Sammy Reynolds

    Thank you. I finally found one to purchase. This board is exclusive and very hard to find.

  • Geof Harries

    I’m 6’4″, 195 lbs with a size 12 boot. I have the 172 model from 2013 and I love the thing. I’m used to 180+ cm alpine boards so I find the Ape a little soft at times, but even at 172 it’s super fun and agile in the park, pipe and all over the mountain. Get one, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Nate

    Sammy, any recommendations on where to find one? Im 6’4″ 240 lbs with a size 17 boot. Searching everywhere….

  • Sammy Reynolds

    The has the board, or should have the board soon. i have already pre-ordered mine. Ride is the only company that make large sized everything for boots and bindings. I wish Lib Tech did because I would have purchased from them.

  • tylernol

    are you going to stock the 170UW on your website soon? thanks!

  • Marcus Williams

    I’m trying to purchase the 170 UW but it wont let me 🙁

  • Jessica Ruman

    Skunk Ape has always been the go-to board for my boyfriend, who is 6’9″ and needs a 180cm wide board. Skunk Ape is *known* as the tall man’s board.
    I’m very disappointed in you, LibTech, to see the longest length as a 170 and not even wide.
    You have let him down and left him scrambling to find older boards.

  • adam

    No, the ex refers to an extruded base.

  • paul

    I’m 6’3″ with a size 11 and have ridden the 161 and loved it. A buddy of mine is 6’6″ with a size 13 and rides the 165. All of this is in WA where the snow is thick and wet. I would recommend the 165 as the C2 makes it possible to ride a much smaller board than you normally would need.

  • Passzed

    Will this board support a guy 6ft and 225lbs?

  • Hello,

    yes it will, The Skunk Ape is specifically made for bigger guys. A good size for you would be a 161.


  • Aiden Hindley

    Hey, I’m trying to find a board size but I’m a little suck… I’m 6ft3, about 170lbs, and have size 13-13.5 feet. Thanks!

  • Денис Лайтан

    Why can’t I choose the size 170 UW?
    Their finished produce?

  • Денис Лайтан

    I made it 170 UW is now mine!!! Russia ordered one Board and it did not get to me due to damage in transit((( the second ordered and the next day it arrived safely! Nowhere else in Russia, this Board is not and the nearest dealers, too – there’s one in Sweden and that is not authorized dealer! He sent me to another dealer! But one question – why is this size not available on the main website?

  • Norman Noll

    Hey guys,

    which one do you recommend for a 6’4″, 210 lbs, shoe size US13 guy?
    Im strugglin between 165 and 169. I try to powder as much as possible but will have entire days on groomers, too.


  • Hello Aiden,

    Sorry for the late reply, Anything between a 161-165 would be a great size. If you are looking for something to just cruise groomers on and play around the 161 would be great. if you wanted something a little bit more pow focus, the 165 would ride well.


  • Jakub

    Hi, I am big guy too, Right now I am 6,11 and 260 + pounds. Is this board would be good for me? And also I am living in Poland, can I buy it anywhere in europe?

  • Paul I


    I’m 183 cm high and my weight is 70 kg (sorry I live in EU so I use metric) and I have 12 size boots. Could you please recommend the right size of Skunk Ape for me? Thank you!

  • Hello Jakub,

    The Skunk Ape 170UW would be the best size for you. Unfortunately we don’t have an inventory of every shop in Europe. i can give you the link to our dealer finder, where you can type in your address and find the closest shop to you in Poland that carries our product.


  • Hello Paul,

    The 157 would be a good everyday size for you. If you wanted something a little bigger for powder, the 161 would be the one.


  • Gary

    I am 6 ft, about 195 lbs and a size 13 boot. Would you recommend the 161w or the 157w? They are the same width correct? The sidecut measurement is what I am not sure about (if that affects the width for my larger feet).


  • Jon

    I’m 6″5′ and 250lbs and I have a size 17 boot, I was wondering if the 170UW would be a good board for me?

  • Roger

    Hi. I’m 6ft8 about 250lbs+ (yep I’m a big boy) will size 12 (US) boots. Been boarding for a few years now and like to spend my time cruising the groomers. Just wondering what board do you reckon would work for me. Thinking about the Skunk Ape, but wondering on size?

  • Hello Roger,

    Yep the Skunk Ape is the board for you! The best size for you will be the 169, if you want to have something fun to throw around or the 172 if you wanted a board a little longer for pow or higher speeds.


  • Chris Lejeune

    Hey Lib tech friend, I’m an old school Northwest extreme rider that has been chilling in warm weather for a few years, looking for a high performance board for steep and deep. I’m 6’4 and 180 with size 11 boot. Recs?

  • Hello Chris,

    Yes the Skunk Ape would be a great snowboard for you! You might also like a T.Rice 164.5w.


  • Noah Sweeters

    Hello There Mervin,
    Is it not possible to get a 170UW any more?

  • Hello,
    Thanks for reaching out to us and expressing interest in our boards! The UW Skunk ape is a popular board for the guys with bigger feet. But unfortunately since it’s a smaller market, we don’t make a large number of boards. The market might be small but the guys looking to get their hands on one tend to jump on it pretty fast, Because of this we tend to sell out quickly! My suggestion for you would be to get in contact with a shop in your local area and see if they have one in stock. If it’s still early season, shops will be in the process of getting their boards in for the season. I would recommend asking them to put the board on hold for when it comes in, or pre-purchasing it so you know you can get your hands on one. But unfortunately once were sold out, we don’t have any more left for the rest of the season. Sorry about that! Here is the link to our dealer finder.
