...the reason for conflicting info, (...aside form possibly ignorant salespeople,) is that the board weight/length specs are NOT consistent between different brands of boards. Often, not even different boards from within the same manufacturer! They are usually close, but they all have different recommended lengths for any given weight range!

Ea. board should list the weight/length specs. Either on the wrapper or on whatever web site! If you fall within the printed specs for any given board length that you are interested in, you should be good to go!

....However, even those specs are just guidelines! I am Grossly overweight for the two boards I regularly ride. On the short Mid West groomers I ride? I'm fine. If I was hitting BIG air or pipe, Out west BC? I might be in trouble with these shorter lengths, but that type riding is WAY out of my league right now, so,...?
