Got the NS Proto CT, Did I buy wrong size?
I picked up the NS Proto CT. I'm not going to lie, I hated this board when I first heard about it.
The more everyone here and elsewhere hyped it up, the more I couldn't stand the idea of falling into the hype.
I went with the Skate Banana back in 2009 because of the hype and hated it. But sh*t, I saw this board in the shop
and it blew everything out of the water. It's sexy. It's light. And the top sheet feels fking nice. Peace out stomp pad.
The only problem is did I size down too much? I bought a 157 regular, and I'm 6'3, 195-205lbs (depending on my bulk or cut) however I'm shooting to lose weight to about 185 with a size 11 boot. Well, 11 with the Ride Hi-Phy, which is a really low profile boot. I'm normally a 11.5 to 12. I strapped in my boots and screwed in the bindings and in order to hit toe or heel edge, I either have be in some serious pow or really
carve in, like 30 degrees from the snow/floor to catch edge. Think I can get away with it? The bindings definitely fit perfectly on there and I'm worried I may be pushing it. Any tips on this? Or should I return it and size up to 160?
Note: I don't like bombing down hills that fast, I'm more of kicker and hit jumps and like riding down with steeze over wreckless speeds.
