Thumbs up Does my board fit me?

Hey,

I have a 2006 Burton Custom thats a 154mm

I'm 5'7" and weight about 210 pounds

Is that to big for that board?

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

Thanks.

Over 200 is definitely pushing it. I have rode customs, the biggest being a 158 or 59, but I'm 160 pounds. 210 is too much weight for a mid flexing boards like the customs

I am not still growing

Last season I rode that board when i was 250
I lot some weight since then.

Is it bad riding that board at my weight? Whats the problems I may have.

Also would it be better if I rode a 2006 Baron ES..I believe its a wide board. I have a 10 boot size

Thanks.

If you're not growing then you could squeak by. I would recommend looking for new boards though. If you like the custom just get and upgraded version. They're stiffer so you could still stay a little bit small.

To give you an idea. I am 6ft and 150 Ilbs. I ride a 154 for all mountain. That's about what I should be at. I actually like shorter boards, but because I am so tall it doesn't work too well.

My friend has a Baron ES Wide thats 156.

Would that be better for me?

If it will be better he wants to trade me

No, with size 10 boots you should be nowhere near a wide board.
