The board says 120-170 pounds but does the weight really make a difference?

Thanks.

I rode an 155 Arbor Cascade (Basically and Element RX rocker) and I the same height and about 190. I upgraded this year went to old school camber 158. I think it is just going to slow us down.

Thank you very much for the information.
Yeah I guess I'm really pushing that board a lot.


Will the 154 Custom be good enough to ride for just this season?
Or should I look into getting something bigger?

I'm just wondering, cause now I am getting into park.

If I land wrong with this board, will it snap and will i get hurt?

you're bending the shit out of it...squeezing it for all its worth, you might snap it...but its half dead already by your weight. If you are riding hard packed and/or ice it probably doesn't matter. My son is about your size and he'll ride anything from a 155 to a 166 depending on the snow conditions. However once you start doing purdah you'll want something big enough to float your manly size....btw you don't need a wide. Point is the board also needs to fit the snow conditions and style that you ride.
