btw i should clarify a bit. for example: all things being equal, 200 lb rider vs a 160 lbs rider. which one has a better chance of doing a clean 1080? or does weight doesn't matter and it just all comes down to practice make perfect?

this weight question came to me after reading an article about those ski jumpers. they need to be as light as possible. apparently for every 2 lbs of weight reduced, they gain 4 ft in distance. however freestyle snowboarding is about tricks so maybe this weight thing does not apply.

while on topic, how would weight contribute to snowboard cross? heavier the better?
