Shwank Oh silly Snow. Balls are gonads, and women have them.

In vast quantities as opposed to males apparently. Have you SEEN some of the stuff women do when strapped on a board??

what we need is a spreadsheet with everyone's height so we can plot the curve & see what the mean & distribution is for snowboarders. then using statistical inference/hypothesis testing we can determine whether they are shorter than the general population

Unfortunately I'm not aware of a comprehensive list of riders & their physical stats...

Extremo Chas Guldemond is 6', Andreas is 6', Lago is 6'1", Bode Merrill is 6'2", Mikkel Bang is 6'2"...I'd say that right there is proof enough that size matters little.
