Size 8 feet here, and I own a T.rice HP.

If you're looking for an every day board, it's too wide for you. If you expect it to perform well on groomers, you're in for a real bad time.

You should be on board with this then. If gaper mcgaperton has a stick that's easy to flip both ways, he's more likely to point it at his friends and catch them running into a tree.
