Look, i know everyone will say it all about your personal prefrence but i want to know everyone oppinion. Is a bigger board better. Is a smaller board better. WHY?

Depends on what type of board, your size, and the size of the board you are on now. I like both my 141 nelson and my 137 byerly, and i've been on a 134 belmont a few times and was able to spin it around way easier than my boards, but want gettin as high

i have no problem getting REALLY HIGH on a smaller board, but the landings are really hard on a smaller board. On a 134 i would hit so hard on every landing my knees would hurt the next day!}

Generally a bigger board will pop a little higher becuase it has more suface area, but I prefer a smaller board over a bigger one. I just hate having to lug a bigger board, like a 140 or above, around in the air.

if you are strong enough, bigger is better. i am 5'8" 165 pounds and ride a 143. i don't think that fits the height and weight specs. i will never go back to anything under 140.
