Arbor Element

Found one for 257.00

It's a 161, I ride a 164 Custom. I weigh 230lbs.

Will I notice a big difference from a 164 to a 161?

look at it this way man, its only 3 cm, and if you really wanted this board, you would have bought it for that price regardless...

You will notice a difference, but mostly because they are entirely different board, not just because of the size difference, but I'm sure you'll have fun riding it, Arbor makes great boards, they are one of the most underrated companies in my opinion.

i know. its weird, it says its standard width on the site, but i checked one out in store and it looked a little on the wide side, so i asked one of the guys working and he's just like, "yup, its a mid-wide to wide board, but real nice still"
