Responded on

over three years since your question, but I hope this helps anyone specifically looking into the Nitro Swindle. I'm 5' 10" and weight 160lbs and rode a 152cm Nitro Swindle. It's a little stiff, the board was certainly small for my height and weight. It snapped when landing tail heavy. Keep that in mind when looking at boards with less flex...don't go too small. However, I currently own a Rome Artifact 153cm and it's rocker design gives me the flex I need when I land tail heavy, plus I can still have a short board that's easy to control. Hopefully this info helps someone...
