I just finished a few lessons & really like it. There are some good sales out there right now. is there much difference in a 158 & 160 board (besides 2cm)?
I found a 158 at a great price & im within the specs but had a 160 for lessons.
At your weight, you would maybe be better served to go with a little smaller board, like a 155 or 156.
As a general rule of thumb, a shorter board is easier to control/maneuver. This is good for beginners (easier to learn), old dudes (easier on old out-of-shape muscles), and people who do a lot of freestyle tricks (where maneuverability is important).
Cool... thanks for the info...
Yes they are the exact same board but no stock around for the 160 & I can grab the 158 now for a great price. Thx, I really didnt think so but really didnt know why they made a 158 & 160 that are so close in size.
