Why start a new thread when you already have one on a similar topic:

Just ask your question in there.

Assuming your stance width stayed the same you added nearly 3 inches of board past each of your feet. Thats a huge difference.

You are 5'6", 130lbs with a size 10 foot. Your are not going to have the muscle and leverage to move that board like you are going to want to. Spinning will be way harder then it should. Same goes for an ollie. It's also a Lamar so I doubt is has the latest and greatest is light weight construction. Go find a 152 or so and be happy.
