21" (I'm 5"6'). And yes, the faster, the lower.

Have 80kmh/50mps every weekend (otherwise I would have to skate to the slightly elevated chairlift station what sucks ) measured with Ski Tracks -> records about 4% to high (cross checked with GPS of car navigation system). Max was 54.

BTW: I'm happy to realize that I'm well within a speed range of being called "fast". My guys still thing I'm to slow If I ride as fast and agressive as I can, with all the strengh I can build up and think THIS was a great ride, they still criticize "you have stay lower - you have put more weight on your front leg - you have to ride more agressive "... oh... shut up and kiss my glutes! (thanks for the nice new word, poutanen)
Just kidding, actually I'm very thankful for their comments

BTW: where are the girls?!

neni,
girls do ride differently, more smooth and just seem to float...they may not look fast because they are sooo smooth...but they are flying. Guys do alot more dramatic power riding that looks aggressive but they are not particulairly smooth. My daughter is really fast, just lays the board flat and takes off like a rocket...and seemingly just stands on the damm thing. But its a very rare day that I can keep up. She is 125# and 5'3" and tops out her 148 cambered stiffy and still wants to go faster, flys on her 155 fs cambered stiffy and frickin rockets on her 174 skis that are 126 underfoot. Anyway fast girls are just so smooth in their riding, it deceptive.

ur gal has good technic. theres no such thing as 'fast girls.' just riders with technic, that are fast, that are girls, that would be a fast girl. it cant be generalized.

That's kind of calming to hear. I've once watched a vid of me riding and thought: yawn... that looks boring!
Would love to see your daughter ride! Sounds awsome

I hit 40 mph in Seattle which is more than fast enough for me.

My buddy who rode faster than me, hit 28 mph on his phone. So yeah, there's that.

Tested it as well in the car and my phone nailed it's mph.
