Size isn't a big deal. I'm a regular power-lifter/olympic-lifter so I'm 5'8", 205lb, dense as fuck and I don't think it inhibits me in anyway. One of my gym buddies I ride with is 5'10" 225 and he can epic shred in the park. So long as your equipment can handle your weight, it doesn't matter. Most of the sport comes down to generating power and having effective balance relative to your size. Both of those you can develop by practicing. Although a little off season training can help too
