I'm a 31 yr old from minnesota. I've been boarding for 5 yrs. I'm 6'3" and 275 lbs. I currently ride a burton baron 172, but I'm looking for new board. I would like to go shorter with this one, but have questions about how short I can go considering my weight. I also need a board that can hold an edge in the icy conditions we typically have in MN.
