155 will be ok as long as you don't get toe-drag with those size 11s, might need a wide... (and you're not hitting massive booters with a Horrorscope...) I'm the same weight and have been abusing a 155 Evo (personally find a softer board than the Horrorscope) for a good 18months or so now - tbh, I've even been wondering about dropping down to 153 for a dome.

demo to be sure Wink

Does 2cm really make a diference?

Yes I know "my wife says it does" but honestly 20mm?

i'm nearly 6'3 and 14 stone, riding a 155 horroscope from a few seasons back, i'd be happy going a few cm's either way tbh, only a 10 boot but no issues i have a fairly average angle stance

so what ever you can pick up in the sales

my locals kicking them out on his ebay shop for 220 plus 10 postage, only 53's and 57's left though

I have found a horroscope 11/12 for 180 brand new. Thats a crazy price.

I was thinking maybe the 157 might have been a tiny tiny bit wider than the 55?

Branny i will message you on that thread.

no worries

specs are here:- https://www.capitasnowboarding.com/snow ... orscope-fk

the 57 has a 0.1cm wide waist....so it's not worth worrying, go for the length you fancy, i'd do the 55 you'll have way more fun on it
