That was my entire point.
I disagree. I'm 150lbs and I have ridden up to 178cm board (that is a big board). This is me riding a 158 cm board at 140 lbs

This is me riding at 160 cm split board (so it's even heavier than a regular board)

So snowklinger... no disrespect, but how experienced of a rider are you? I know just started again 3 years ago... but how much we you riding before your hiatus? If you are shortboard skateboarder, I can see what you might think regular sized boards are too long for your twitchy turn style as shortboard skateboarder turn to just go in a straight line most of the time, with some tic-tac around at slow speeds and I would imagine your snowboard style is similar.

I'm just wondering why you ride your Proto 154 cm as an all-mountain board at 175 lbs... and I'm riding the exact same board as my dedicated park board at 150 lbs.
