I do not think it is that common of a scenario - but even if, I had already acknowledged that caveat ~25 posts ago.
In any case, it is not relevant for the point poutanen made and which I was commenting on.
And your rebuttal to my ankle weights comment which directly relates to poutanen's theory? I'm curious how you think that doesn't make sense.
Why is the industry moving toward more lightweight gear? Why is top tier equipment constantly being developed with weight reduction kept in mind?
Because people want it, that's why. I will always consider functionality over weight, but all else being equal, I would go for the lighter option.
How about freestyle boards with low swing weight? Why is that advertised so often? Cause people want it! Guess how it is done... weight reduction techniques!
