Hi, i am 188 more or less and i would like to know if a man could ride a woman board. I like the angel 134 and i dont know whats the difference between a men or women board. Because if the only difference is the length maybe i couls ride it. Thanks for ur help.

Depends on how secure you are in your masculinity.....But seriously most women's boards, with a few exceptions, are just guy's boards with different graphics, and generally smaller. In this case I would say the 134 is too small for you, but if it's all you've got, it's all you've got.

The angel is the same as the team, I rode the angel for a while since I didn't have to pay for it, awesome board in my opinion, but seems a little small for your weight.

The answer is Yes they can, but it helps to have a womens life vest on and a pair of hot pink short shorts. Oh yeah and you have to be blasting anything Cold Play sings on the tower speakers. I heard snapping your fingers a lot while shaking your tushy helps you get more air when on a womens board. JK.

I am only playing. Hey if that all you have and your okay with it go for it. I have tried my wifes board just to see how it rode once or twice.

Only Borat could answer that question.

Seriously, try every board you can get under your feet. A few years back i rode a 135 at 195 so no worries on that part. Typically you will want a larger/longer board when you get closer to 200. Once again typically. It all depends on rider preference.

get the team 143, same shape and better size for your weight-the bigger the board the softer the landing

Get the Team 139 or 143. Again same board, bigger size, more manly graphics.

I think Tim Hardaway will chime in on this one.

I tried every single pair of boots in the LF line up last year and if riding a pair of blue or pink boots was what it was going to take for me to stick with an LF boot I was about to do it.

If you're cool with riding some chick oriented graphics, why not?

I think I once read that LF used a different fiberglass on their women's boards, to make them flex softer. I think it was designed to make the board land softer and I make it more forgiving. I think it was on their website.

most women boards are the same shape as mens boards... just different sizes and graphics.

Justin is right. LF uses a different fiberglass weave on the girl boards. they use a biaxial weave in the girls boards for a softer flex and they use a triaxial weave in the guys boards.

I saw a guy at OWC one time riding the pink syn... and he was killing it!
