because i'm a small guy, 5'5, i'm thinking should i get a board based on the weight range or it would be fine to get a shorter board that fit my height in order to do tricks easier?
How would how tall you are affect the way a board rides? If you think about it it makes no sense. It's weight and foot size just like you saw.
