Default 165Ibs on a 152 skate banana

well, Im 5'8-9 160-165 Ibs and bought a 152 Skate banana. do you think this is to small for me? my local shop sold out of the 156 and couldnt order anymore

I did take it out yesterday and didnt seem to be a real issue. I wasnt able to do my army walk very well. is that because the board is to stiff for my weigh since its shorter ( less leverage )?

thanks in advance

I did rails no problem though

If it feels good, it's fine.

It will be a little short if you're going out of the park.

well, I ride 50 mountain / 50 park

when I ride mountain Im with the fiance, but when Im with her, Im still buttering and doing ground tricks, and teaching her how to board. when Im in the park, Im doing rails, boxes, and jumps. Im not a speed demon

plus, Im in wisconsin, we dont get deep pow, much less pow in general.


do you think it being a 152 is why I cant do a army walk? it doesnt seem very flexy like people say. again is that the 152 ( no leverage? )

it'll have more flex for your weight, not stiffer. you'll feel the difference when you ride it since your weight will be putting more pressure down the contact points than someone who weighs 140lb. it'll be good for park i'd assume, but bombing down steeps would be a tad more difficult.
