At 185 dry? What are you in riding gear 205? I would go 162 at least.
Yup, 185 in my birthday suit so with all the gear around 205. Thanks for the advice and the size chart.
another question...does capita's "waist width" measurement take into consideration the "death grip" contact point that sticks out at the middle of the board? i ask cuz if this is the case, then in practical terms, the waist is probably a bit smaller than advertised.
Yes they take the death!
That's another reason for me to stay at the upper end with my size 11 boots. The waist for the 165 is 26.2 including the death grip, so without it it should be somewhere around 25.8, and the 162 around 25.4. That's not a lot.
