Translating Board Size
If I were to buy a board that is supposed to be sized down
And rode it at my actual size, how would that translate?
What are the pros and cons of that?
i.e. My size is 157, buying a board that says I should get a 152 but i go with longer size, 5'10" - 165/170 LBS - Int/Adv rider
My intuition tells me that I will have all the board has to offer plus more stability at high speed and forgiveness in landing. Like the extra length will ride out in tricky situations and an extra weight/'length would be negligible
Not sure though, let me know what you think?
