whats up water dancers, with the start of another canadian season fast approaching i was thinking about investing in a new nice board. ive been riding a gator impala for the last season and wasnt too impressed. very basic board. i was thinking about upgrading to a integrity because from what ive read these things are legit. and if im gonna get any of Nick T's steez it would be well worth it. my only dilemma is if i'm too tall to be riding one. their biggest board is the 41" team. let me know. im 6'3" and around 188 pounds. not sure what that is in metric. let me know guys. much appreciated.

the 41 will be fine for you but you might like the lemons for the extra width. my buddy (6'1" 230lbs) rode my tnt a couple weekends ago fell in love with it. i thought it wouldnt work at all but he digs it.

the 41 and the lemons arent the same width? tried looking that up on the site but i couldnt find much. is the difference between the team and the lemons worth the 70$ difference? and anyone know anything about the mutinys?

The 41 is narrower then the 40.23" deck. <BR> <BR>The team 40.23 and lemons pro model 40.23" are the same shape but the team has a birch core while the pro model has a bamboo core so it is stiffer and the board will not break down over time and get soft. <BR> <BR>each size deck is a different shape. they arent just scaled up or down.

ahhh true enough, thanks alot. the lemons sounds like the one i should go with then, you ever get a change to try one out?. and do you know anything about these mutiny boards coming out? they look pretty sweet ass.

Hyperlite Catalyst 114. I am 6' 220lbs and it floats me like crazy. Awesome board unless you are looking for wood.
