I own a 255 and a 265. I weigh 155 lbs. Freestyle is what I do so I love the
board. I sail it from 5.9 down to 4.1. A 5.0 is the perfect size for this
board. Sure it's not the fastest board out there but it's not like everyone
flies past me. If you want to learn tricks these are the types of boards that
you have to have to learn new moves the quickest.
All I can say is I love the air 255. I've had it out in over-head swells and
it handles great. It is extremely easy to handle on big jumps, and so far it's
holding up really good.
