hey guys im 5'10 170 and my mom got me a 39 byerly. to be honest she didnt know what she was getting me and got this for a discount price because of some grip tape damage. i was wondering, even though its a 39. it still is a really thick skate what effects would this have? compaired to going to a 42

the 39 is going to be easier to throw around. the 42 would give you more surface area for a wider stance and also more room for error when catching the board.
you should be fine with the 39. its not a true 39" board its really bigger. its weird.

the skate is thick because it has exagerated concave. it gives you increased leverage for edging and for ollies. some people find it extremely awkward will others dig it.

ride it and have fun.

I was looking at the same board, i am 6'2 195. I was leaning towards the 42, would the 39 be too small? Thanks.

youll probably want the 42 so you can have a wider stance because youre taller but its all personal preference

thanks mitch thats what i was thinking it would be a lot looser board allowing me to do more things with it but landing will be a litter harder.

Hey jason i am 6'1 and 175 and i wouldnt want the 42 too big, if you are a previous skater the 39 is amazing ive ridden a few byerly boards and the legacy 39 by far is a insane skate feel wakeskate
