I've been riding 7.5's a lot lately. But working at the shop has also made me realize that pro riders aren't riding small decks and 8 is the regular. My homie Tyler has been pushing me to ride an 8, same size feet as me. He claims he will buy me one if I choose to ride it and guarentees I will like it more. I am starting to believe him.
