    Default How tall are most Pro Skimboarders

    Hey I was just wondering if anyone knows how tall any of the pro skimboarders are. You cant find it anywhere online but if anyone knows any pros or have seen them then let me know. I just want to know if like being taller is a advantage or disadvantage. From what i have seen it looks like Paulo Prietto is over 6 feet.

    no shit, I really didn't see the need for that. Did you make someone cry with that one? Maybe you hurt the feelings of a die-hard Domke-fan. Made me laugh...

    Can just anyone give an infraction -- seems sort of lame.

    I don't think height really matters except I'd expect more stoke for Monster to get an over head barrel than jonathan howell to get one.
