However once you start doing purdah you'll want something big enough to float your manly size....btw you don't need a wide. Point is the board also needs to fit the snow conditions and style that you ride.
I'm a downhill longboarder at heart. so my style is carving hard. just riding really.

Thank you very much for the information.
Yeah I guess I'm really pushing that board a lot.


Will the 154 Custom be good enough to ride for just this season?
Or should I look into getting something bigger?

Is that to big for that board?

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

Thanks.

I rode an 155 Arbor Cascade (Basically and Element RX rocker) and I the same height and about 190. I upgraded this year went to old school camber 158. I think it is just going to slow us down.

If it will be better he wants to trade me
No, with size 10 boots you should be nowhere near a wide board.
