    Default Has anyone here had a growth spurt after 16?

    Ok I'm average height and I need that extra burst in height if I want to be considered tall. I'm like 6'2" but my posture is shite so I look like I'm 6 ft. Earl Sweatshirt has the same posture like me but he looks his height, fuck having flat feet my doc said that's why my posture is shite.

    work on your posture. Being taller with shitty posture won't change anything.

    You can work on fixing your foot arches. And also calm the fuck down, you're about 4 inches over average height.

    I was never a tall kid but I didn't stop growing until pretty late. I think I was like 5"11 when I was 18 and I'm probably around 6"3 now. I honestly don't really like being tall, my skateboarding looks like poop and I bump my head on a lot of shit. But I like how I look a lot more after I worked on my posture. I just figured out what I was supposed to look like with good posture and just looked at my reflection every time I walked past a store or a car window and corrected myself. Eventually it just got better.

    Unless your genetics allow for it or you have a pituitary gland tumor, you're not going to grow any more. I don't see the appeal in being over 6'3" anyways.

    after I think 15 or maybe it was 16, very rarely do people grow too much taller, growth charts will show a relative plateau from 16-24, but there are cases like Q's, and I myself, I was 5'2" when I turned 16 and I was 5'4" when I turned 18 and im now 5'7" at 20, pretty close to 5'8" so I gues you could say im 5'7.5", im hoping I can reach 5'10" before 24, but I doubt it, my mom is 5'1" and my dad is 5'10.5" so Ive just got bad genes, and my brother just turned 23 and he is 5'5" so I dont think there is hope for me
    I got all dressed up to get lost at sea, gale force winds came and raptured me, put me right where I need to be, wash me up on Galeforce Beach.

    Wow what the heck, 6 foot is tall enough as it is, the taller you get the harder it'll be to skate anyways. I'm 5'7 and I'm not crying, be happy with how much you look like a beanstalk already

    Bruh Figgy is like 6'6" and he's good. I want to be as tall as that because I saw him walking through a crowd in SF and he was a fucking tower. He makes my 6'2" look like 5'7".

    If you watch his interviews he complains about his height, the taller you stand the harder you fall.

    Yeah I want to be a giant. Every tall guy complains about they're height but if I asked Figgy if he'd rather be 5'6" than 6'6" he'd pick the latter.

    Sounds like you're a little insecure, why not try to find yourself first, you might think differently afterwards. Or just wear some massive fucking platform shoes and bell bottomed pants. That'd be OG

    Hit the gym. That'll help correct your posture.
