Yeah at 160 if you go smaller they might be too soft. Those are the sizes I'd ride as a do everything park board and I weigh 150.

i don't wanna run you away from tbt. Just demo it first, here on the mid ice coast I tried it for a couple runs and wiped out on my first run. I had kinda made up my mind then. But it rode really nice on rails, but id hate to ride it on hand rails. It felt like you had less board touching the rail. But like i said i only had it for a few runs.

Oh ok well thanx for clearing that up. One thing I heard about these boards is that you need good amount of time on like days notjust a few hours To get the full experience of the TBT

yeah probably, i just dont like the idea of having to try harder to get a grip while carving into a jump... but they have some pro riders who do it so
