prolly like a 7.25 to 7.5 width? ... the fun thing about a skateboard to me is not catching an edge. lol

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

This may sound retarded but, I'm very at ease with snowboarding regular (freeride/jumps/rails) Basically I do everything regular.

I tried skateboarding for the 1st time today, and I feel much more balanced riding goofy. Regular on a skateboard for me looks kinda sad. My buddy told me it was rare to see ppl switch sides when they either snow/skateboard.

Is this true? Why am I not able to stick to the same side :P ?

Yeah. That is super-kooky. It would be like writing with your right hand when using a pencil, but your left when using a magic marker.

I actually have two friends and a cousin who all ride goofy when they snowboard and regular when they skateboard. I don't know why they do it, but it works for them

Yep very weird indeed. Tried it again today and I can confirm that my snowboard stance does not work at all on a skate deck, while ''switch'' works great.

On a side note, I didn't expect ollies to be so hard on shoes lol, my new Converses are ruined after a day ha!

That is interesting, but I think other than giving you better balance I feel as though the idea of not being strapped into the board might feel strange at first

My snowboarding experience helped me with sharp turns and balance on ramps, that's about it.
