I recently bought a pair of small G3 splitboard skins for my size 159 board (an old Voile). G3 says the small fits boards between 145 - 159. When I put them on my board, though, they barely reached the tail of the board. The tail clip/connector would have to be extended almost to the end of the rubber tail strap. Seemed like there were way too small, so I returned them (before cutting them up).
I just picked up a pair of the mediums thinking they would be a better fit, but now I'm wondering if they're too long. Here are some pics:
For shits 'n giggles, here's what my current skins look like on my board:
The G3 skins provide plenty of coverage and the skins themselves don't seem too long. What I'm worried about is the tail clip/tail strap. Will that thing stretch out? If so, I might be screwed down the road.
