Ride Machete - Bought Wrong Size?
I'm 6'0", 180 lbs, 10.5 boot and bought myself a Ride Machete 158 (regular) at the end of last season. I just gave it a spin this past weekend in Colorado and was happy with it, but I felt a little shaky at high speeds and a higher amount of chatter than expected. Granted, I'm relatively new - been boarding one season now (been 8 times), so perhaps its my noobness.
Curious though - is 158 typically too small for a person my size? I don't ride pow very often, and do not do parks or tricks - I carve, and sometimes go off trail in powder. I'm wondering if I should have gotten the 160 or the 162 (don't think I need the wide)?
