Think about it this way. I want to change a flat tire. For my socket wrench due i use just the regular handle to start it off, or should I add a piece of pipe on to the handle to increase my leverage and impart more force to the lug? I can do the same on a board. for quicker smaller tilting of the board I might just use my ankle lever. But if I really want to tilt it up I'll use my knee in combination with the ankle. The problem that exists is that by nature taller people have longer levels, and depending on the board and what is trying to be performed can over leverage a smaller board a lot quicker. And its not just about being able to over leverage with a movement but with body placement as well. Hope this clears up a little better the angle I was coming at with answering this thread.
