Default Is a 155 board long enough for6'?

It's a proto hdx. The longest size is 155. I'm 6 foot and 67 kg
Is this too short or will I be right. I have a size 12 boot.

haha thanks for the reply mate. Or would it be beneficial to opt for the salamon sabotage which I can get in 158 (wide version). Is there much difference between a 155 and 158 when riding?

Sweet f#@k all difference to me lol. 3cm is nothing and you will probably bulk up a bit more as time goes on so yeah dont sweat it, 158 will be fine

Just to put it in perspective I fluctuate between 65 and 70kgs on and off season; I am currently on a 153 and have ridden up to 160

If you are ridding any powder, you will struggle on the 155.

Do you live in Wyoming or Alaska?

See powder ever?

155 is perfect if you're standing in your living room.
& I'm not saying it's the wrong size either.

If your home mtn, looks like a parking lot with a bit of an incline
Then you prolly don't even need a 55

But if you ever see the goods, or you plan to hit Baker all year? There ain't nothin' wrong with a little extra float

Not sure where you got your info? Or maybe you just have limited selection where you are?

It comes in a 152,155,158,160 & 163

I'm in Australia. So I rarely see powder. There's a lot of hard pack/icey conditions instead.

The only reason why am considering the 155 HDX is because I can now get it for the same price as the salamon sabotage 158cm.


The store I'm at only has the hdx in 155.

Jeebus!!! 6ft, 67 kg's?? My conversion chart puts that at 147 lbs?


Are you a walking set of pipe cleaners??? I ride a 2012 Proto 157. I ride the resorts with it @ 6ft, 240!!! That's 108kg's! If the new ones still have the blunted tips? They supposedly ride like they're 2-3cm longer.

ETM's right! You've got more concerns with you size 12's than you do with a centimeter or two of board length!

Yeh just started hitting the gym so hopefully some decent gains haaha
Heard so many good things about the proto and some many people seem to have it. So 155 HDX it is! It has a waist width of 261 so I'm hoping itll suffice for size 12's.
