Default Slightly different new board?

I have a Nitro Suprateam 157, which I like very much. I'm thinking of
buying a slightly shorter board and am looking at the Signal OG 155.
Like my Nitro, it sounds like a really nice all terrain board. I'm
just after a touch more control and the reviews of the Signal sound
like I won't lose out on the high speed stability with the length
difference. How much difference will the 2 cm make in other ways
though? Any thoughts welcome..

If you're after a touch more control and looking to switch boards to do
it when you're already on a pretty short board, maybe you should put the
money into lessons.

Maybe.. I stupidly forgot to mention though, I am only 170cm tall and
67 kilos, so the board isn't all that short for me. Does that change
anything in your advice? Thanks - Tom.

That's 5'7", 147 lbs - I don't think you're too small for that board,
unless you spend a lot of time in the park and like to spin.

OK, noted. Thanks for the comments.

As far a 157 to a 155, I do not think your going find that much of a
difference. You may try a little softer board at the same length to see
how it rides.

Later,

Chris


Hey Chris, many thanks.
