Hey,
I know this question comes up a lot , but I got to ask anyway.
So my weight is 147 lbs, 8 boot size. Looking to buy the warpig, but having a hard time to decide which size. According to ride I should get the 148, but I heard you should really downsize. (So maybe the 142) I’m basically looking for a solid and stable all mountain board that will handle well a bit of pow. Anyone here has a warpig and pretty much the same weight, and could have an advice?
thanks!

Definitely 148 for all mountain, the 142 would be a play thing, designed more for female riders (lighter, smaller boot)

What they said. I am about your weight and same boot size and was comfortable on the 148 Warpig, currently own a 151 Superpig.

Yeah but the chart is just a suggestion, so just wanted to hear from warpig owners with the same weight

I would go 142. According to the size chart I should be on the XL at 215lbs but I bought the L (154) and it works awesome in Pow and at speed. I normally ride a 160W and the warpig is supposed to be sized down 6 to 10cm under your normal size.

Wait, someone said downsize from the manufacturers recommendations for all mountain and pow or is that your suggestion?

Yeah I would say a few someone’s have said it. But I think I’ll stick to the manufacturer’s recommendations anyway for my purpose
