Replying to Does being bigger/heavier help in the powder?
Ive heard people say that in surfing, being a bigger heavier guy makes your surfing more graceful because when youre heavy your board doesnt pitter patter around and you punish the wave as opposed to being a small surfer who gets punished by the wave. You will see it yourself if you watch surf vids; most pros are pretty husky guys.
Back to the point, do you think being heavier helps you be more graceful skiing in powder? What about snowboarding?
