Not too small if you're a park/groomer rat.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I'd say its a tad small except for park. I weight 190 ish and ride 157 wide twins everywhere. On deeper powder days its pushing it a little. I also tend to break boards at my weight so depending how aggressive you are you might hurt the thing. It will be fun though.

see the problem is with me, we almost never have powder, im in NY and last year we didnt have one good powder day, only in vermont and thats a 4 hour trip from where i am. its mostly hard packed and icey ... so in that case, this board would be fine then right? i hope so cause i just ordered it lol.
