NJ - this is of course a matter of opinion;
to an extent i am of the inclination to say it isn't very important; i afterall, learnt to ride on a 154, when my body mass would suggest that ideally, i should've been on a 164!
however, my next board was a 162 and whilst turning initiation etc felt more 'sluggish', the entire ride experience was much improved!
and so whilst it is relevent to suggest that a wrong board size will not ruin your sliding experience, it is more accurate to say, such things can be improved upon to an optimal standard.
it depends on how fussy you wish to be! currently for hardpiste, junker days, or those rare moments of park riding, i have 160. for my preferred powder days / frsshie days, i have a 166. i weigh 210lbs
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
