Another size question
I typically ride between a 159cm and a 162cm board, all depending. My direct question is: What differences will I feel or notice riding a 157cm?
I ask because I can get a sweet deal on a used Travis Rice 157cm. Normally I wouldn't consider it, but I feel great on a 159 Skate Banana and logic tells me, how could 2cm impact me considering it would be on a stiffer deck? Would the board just feel too loose for me or would it chatter while bombing?
I used to own a 161.5 T. Rice and it was a a great ride FWIW.
I'm 6'3" and 210 lbs. I rode a Lib T. Rice 161.5 for a season. With the exception of powder days, I wish I had the 157. I rode a 157 Proto and was happy on it, and I think the T. Rice would have been great in a 157. I wear a size 11 boot, and the T. Rice was just wide enough to make it noticeably less quick edge to edge, and it was a bit of a clunker in the trees. Unless you have giant feet, I think the 157 will be great, just don't expect it to float perfect on pow days.
