Currently I have a Lib Tech Skunk Ape 172 board. I'm 6'2 and 275lbs. Do I need a shorter board? The reason I ask is b/c my friend suggested I get the 165cm board b/c I'm only 6'2..Is that true?
Also I don't do any park riding..
Weight is the more important factor - 172 seems reasonable for freeride. I have a friend who is 6'3 165 lbs (he played as a wide receiver for Stanford). In contrast you are built more like a bone-crunching defensive end. Does it make sense for the two of you to be using the same equipment?
