Ive been hooked on over 8s now for a while now. I want to try something around 8.38-8.5, would those Anithero 9s be way too big for everyday riding and a small person?

I rock 8's for a while now but they are still too small for me.

Next purchases will be a 8.3or 8.5 or so and some grenade lows.

first, questions like this in an online forum are pretty pointless.

i've seen little dudes on big boards kill it, and i've seen big dudes on big boards that "fit" them suck ass.

it all depends what you skate, how you skate, etc, etc, etc.

try one. if you can't land tricks on it and it feels too big and you're just plain not hyped on it, its too big. next time, go smaller.

i feel dumber for typing that.

I just feel so unbalanced when setting up for my kickflip, I'm thinking a bigger board will cure that?

no. you just need to get used to loose trucks for that cure. i ride loose trucks on 7.5 boards and don't fee unbalanced on kickflips. are you new to loose trucks? or maybe your trucks are too tight and that is the problem?

I loosened my trucks all the way recently and shit does get harder but my kickflips weren't so swell before either.

are you flicking your front foot off the nose or the corner? that could be your problem. set up like an ollie and flick it forward off the nose, this way there will be less pressure on the side of your board and your kickflip will (might?) look prettier.

My shoes are red suede so all I see is a flick trail all the way to the corner/nose of the board. I know how I just have to practice, but I might have a structural fracture under the ball of my foot. My birthday is in the next month so I'll just cash in for a bigger board and see how I do then.
