WIDE and STIFF

Lets say that you have two of the exact same boards. Same model, size etc. If one of them is a wide version, will it be a bit stiffer than the non wide board?

Nope...The Forum Destroyer Wide was noticably softer than the reg version last year. One reason I didnt buy the 154.

Shouldn't be a change unless the QC wasn't paying attention that day when it came out of the press. The only difference would be if the rider had a small boot like a size 9 and was riding the wide. It would just be the amount of leverage to get it on edge.

the correct answer is it depends on the board... some are the same and some differ.

this past years legacy was stiffer than the sl-r to disprove the above posters

I rode both they ride the same other than the leverage to get them on edge.
