Cool As Cakes: As far as size goes, my concern is based in the fact that I keep reading about how reverse camber boards should be bought a size smaller. Therefore, instead of getting a 162 altered genetics, a 161 dark series, and a 162 heritage, I am considering a 159 altered genetics, a 158 dark series, and a 160 heritage. However, if you think I should go for the larger of the two size choices, please let me know.
Sidewall: This is the same reason why I haven't considered the Billy Goat. I am afraid that at the only size available, 162, it may be too long; and, it has a flex of 8, which may make the length an issue. However, if I am wrong, please let me know. I definitely love the idea of riding the Billy Goat not only because it is very similar to the Dark Series, but the does have a great name which fits my riding style.
