I think I'll be all right as far as toe overhang goes.
The Lotus is the womens premier? No?

size waist edge sidecut tip/tail Dampness Flex
Lotus 157 23.8 122 vario700 28.6/28.4 8.5 4
Premier 157 24.9 122 vario745 29.3 7 5.5

Now I don't really see a big difference in the stats, or if there is I don't understand it.
The real big difference that I can see is in the Dampness & the Flex.

I'm just trying to figure out if, because it's a chicks board is it going to be to floppy or I don't know?
I'm pretty good nothing spectacular, & I know their are chicks out there that weigh the same & could blow my doors off. If they can't break it I shouldn't right?

So do you think it will be too Noodle-e? Will I break it? Will I even notice anything?
I'm about 5'10 & 160lbs I like to freeride. I'll hit the park, I'm not big on the rails but like the big booters. Last year I had @ least 20 days with 2 feet of fluffy goodness.

Will this work for me?
Have any other dudes tried the Lotus?

Thank you


Yes I obviously know it's a girls board

The 158 Heritage would seem a more appropriate choice?
