Have fun, stay safe and just enjoy...
"....How Us Old people Ride!" LOL! That's very well put. I Didn't think to consider the length issue like that. I think You are right tho! Until such time as I maybe get out west and into some really deep shit? Or unless I eventually get past my, (...starting to seem a bit pathological by now.) fear of getting Air? On the groomers & shin deep resort poo, It probably doesn't matter too much if my boards are on the short side.

The one area I think there's an exception, is flat out speed n bombing. If you're into that? Longer will definitely be more noticeably stable especially for us "sides O' beef!"

.....wish I could figure out how to do that!! I drop a few during the season, but I find after I've spent all day on the slope, in cold and riding first to last chair? I'm freakin' RAVENOUS!! I usually end up eating a lot when Im done for the day.
