How much leeway with weight do you normally have.

Apologies if this sounds really stupid but I only started trying to skate on Monday so I have no clue at the moment.

Now I got myself a Mindless Hunter 3 board as it seemed a decent enough place to start, but after showing my friend who's quite big on skateboarding a link to it I noticed it was rated to 14 stone weight.

At the moment I am 16.5 stone with a tendency to indulge in multiple desserts (at least two) when I go out.

Soo how much leeway in general do you have with the weight limit? I'm just planning to use the board to get to and from town so it's 3 miles on paved and tarmacked roads.

Sort of depends if the board's designed to flex, but I shouldn't think a couple of stone will make much difference, it's not likely to snap if you take your shopping on it.

Ride it and find out I guess! ..-
Don't call it a comeback...
