Hello there,
I have been riding since I was 16 and am 34 now. I went through some good amount of boards but had to take a 4 season break from riding. Now I need a new board - my last one was Nidecker Smoke wide with Ride Ex bindings.
I have been on this board on a ton of slopes around the World (French and Austrian Alps, US East Coast (Vermont, NH, upstate NY) Lake Tahoe and some other places. In any event, the board I have is 10 years old and I need a new one and new bindings. Possibly new boots as well.
The problem I have is my size -I am a bodybuilder and I am 285 lbs at 6’3 that is 130 kgs and 193-194 cm for those using metric system. My boot size is 13.
My funds are limited this season and will be riding in NH with my child and wife so it will not be as aggressive as I would like. In my price range with wide size and longer boards there are only few boards to consider:
1. Burton Bullet Wide
2. Burton cruzer rocker wide
3. Ride Manic Wide
4. Morrow Fury Wide

I wanted to buy Burton Custom but for financial reasons will not be able to do so this season.

Sorry for the essay and thx in advance for all your help ;)
