?RE:downsizing for park board

So like the thread says, I wanna go super small just for a f*** around board and was concerned with toe and heel drag. Has anyone experienced with toe/heel drag before? and if so what exactly does it feel like? I woul'nt be doing much deep carving, I just wanted a fun board to play around with. The boards waist would be 22.3 and shoe size 8 in mens. Thanks for any inputs and opinions.

What board is this that has a 22.3 waist? Kids board? I think size 8 on a 22.3 is very much pushing it.

If you need a super small board the Signal park comes in 146, Swindle comes in 145...

Well its based on your weight not your height. If you are looking for a park board in smaller than 145 I would guess you are <110lbs

Ever seen a MotoGP racer take a turn to hard and catch their knee and slide out? That. But at 20mph intead of 200mph.
