Ok talked to a rep at EVO.com and he's saying that with me being 180 I'm fine on the 150 even though the board size chart says 170. He said they more so are saying that if I'm over 170 and trying to ride on powder, etc it'll be hard. He said that if I am 5'5 180 and want a strictly park board and maybe so a couple regular runs out of the day, 150 is the board to get. What you guys think?
He said the board isn't going to snap and since I'm 180 an athletic, not obese at 5'5 I will have no problem maneuvering the board and picking up speed on it.
Final opinions? Rome artifact rocker 150, or 153?
Not trying to be a smartass but the comment of being 180 athletic not obese is a really dumb assessment. 180 is 180. Do you think the board is going to check you BMI before you strap in?
