I know going by the chart my board is probably to small. I ride a marek 141 and weigh around 215 i just want to know if getting a bigger board would have a big plus to it. Why is it bad to be riding a smaller board? Am i not getting all the pop out of it or something like that....just give me some info like the pros and cons, thanks

Personally for me I feel like riding a smaller board gives me less pop and less control. The controll issue is what really gets me. If I am riding a board that is a little too small I typically will land a trick and fall out the front. Take a trick like crow mobe, on a smaller board I will land and not have enough nose on the board to keep up with my momentum (I land crowmobes a bit front foot heavy) so I will do this slow forward fall where I go out the fornt.

How tall are you? I am 6'3" 220lbs, I ride a 144.

I'm 5-9 185 and ride a 140. It's easier to go up than down. If I were you, I would be riding a bigger board.

preference, all preference. if it feels too small, then yes get a new one, but if not, keep shredding it!
