Default Is 2cm really that much of a difference?

Hey all. I'm kind of stuck between getting a 147 Horrorscope or a 149 Horrorscope. I'm leaning toward the 149, having ridden a 147 in the past.

Height: 5'6"
Weight: 138-9lbs
Boot size: 8

My focus is in the park, on rails usually. But I do enjoy cruising the runs at a pretty fast speed too. Would the additional 2cm make any difference at all (graphics aside)?

I don't think you'd feel any difference. People tend to think a 49 rides very differently from a 47. I went from a 55 to a 59 and to be honest the differences are so marginal that you wouldn't really feel them if you didn't know you're on a different size.

Of course, a 49 should give you more stability going fast but it won't change the feel of the board in a dramatic way. Go with the 49. It's not at all out of your weight range.

Short answer- no.

Long answer- No, it's not.

Considering the 55 wasn't stable I doubt the 49 is going to be any better than the 47.

Ask a girl that question she'll tell you yes.
