If you're lucky enough to get powder, a bigger board is better. To an extent.

If not, smaller boards are easier to throw around.

I personally like a longer board, especially in the deep, but I live in B.C.
In the spring I like to drop down @ least 10cm.

Can you get a bigger one? Maybe better options would be the 58 & one size bigger, if they make it?

I wished my 55 Hero was bigger, but I don't really go in the park that much.

The length was fine, I wished it was longer because, It was my everything shredder.

The 2011 had the scoop nose & tail, don't know if 2012 does.
