I'm thinking about buying the 2014 DC ply and looking at the size charts for it
it seems that I should get a 159cm (or 156cm) board, since i weigh 172lbs. However looking at Torstein Horgmo who rides the same board size 150cm i get confused because he only weighs 154 lbs.
So, my question is basically: why the heck do i supposedly need a 9cm longer board for just weighing 18lbs (8kgs) more?
My current stiff freeride board is 159cm! I see no sense in getting a just as long parkboard, since parkboards should supposedly be shorter than stiffer freeride boards?
Please, kill my confusion!
Sidenote: torstein is supposedly 5'8" (171cm) tall, and im 6'1" (186cm), however i've read that the height is not the deciding factor but the weight is.
