mos def a wide board. I have 12's, ridden everything from a 24.8, to a 26.8, and riding a slightly wider board is heaven. if you need to lay down a heavy edge, hit ice, get into deeper snow, etc. The smallest board i've ever ridden with zero problems, is a 25.5, with +15 -15 angles.

Hey. This board is definitely designed for a powerful freestyle rider. Or a big dude...whichever fits. How much do you weigh? if you are of average height for your weight, I would recommend something slightly softer. I would imagine this board as being a 5 for a flex.

depending on the exact foot print of your boot, you could get away with that waist width, especially if you ride with a ducked stance, but depending on your weight, you might want the 51. A little extra width translates into more stability: on rails, in powder, landings...etc...

I'd say if your of average weight for your height, you can rock the 48 and be ok.

good luck

Hi joey,

Well, depending on the exact room between your noggin and the helmet, they could, but...
putting something between your helmet and your head could interfere in the performance of the helmet. Helmets are designed to work close to your skull! I rock the full metal jacket's...tons of bass, crisp highs, and they hide right in your ears! If you have space in your helmet, the safest way would be to wear a light beenine, or even add more foam to your helmet.

Hope I helped shed some light, homey
