If you're doing the season I presume you'll be taking more than one board? If that's the case I'd agree with sizing up as you don't require that same level of...

To add to my concerns I'm now not sure what size I should be looking at. My current board is 153 so I just presumed I'd get the same again. But now I'm wondering whether I should go the 156 if I go...
