why is it that every shop is surprised to hear that i (5' 7" and 130 lbs) ride a 155cm board. they all say i should ride like a 140 or something. i feel that a 155 for me is perfect. And i ride park all the time.
don't forget to bring a towel
If you ski Killy or Mount Snow pm me to chill in the parks
Meh, All the shops tell me I need a LONGER board... I ride a 155 as well, I'm 5'10" and around 155-160 lbs, size 10 boots, they tell me I need like a 158-160. One guy told me,"you aren't gonna like the small board, can't go fast enough, and you just won't be able to handle it" after I told him i got a 155. Maybe he didn't know that I wanted to do park instead of freeriding...
Yea no offence to shop people but there so used to dealing with newbs that i just ignor there sales shit because i know what i want. Im 6 foot tall and 140 i ride a 156 which is a little big because im soo light but i like it so its ok

You could always try a longer/shorter board at a demo because you never know. but I ride a 151, I'm 5'4" and 130 lbs
"I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words."
wel you could prob go shorter then a 155 i wouldnt say go below 150 though.
i my self am 6'2" 280+ and i ride a 164 which is tevchnically to small for me but i dont want anything bigger all i do is drop my stance back a litle
I say we put more messages on the records. "Kill the band, kill your parents, then yourself, ok!? Make sure you get your whole head in front of the shotgun. Thank you for calling! Thank you for calling!"
not neccessarily. smaller boards are better for smaller, jib-type features and easier to control on rails. small boards are not good on bigger jumps because they can't offer the support and stability of bigger boards.
I think your board length should be determined on what your speacialty is. If you're in the park all the time, then yeah you might want a smaller board. But then when you take on the trails, there's no way you're gonna be able to lay down some sick carves with a small board. My friend Jules is a mad good carver and he rides a 173. So it's all about what you're into.

I like them on the longer side but the only problem is I have a men's park board which means the stance is centred and wide. so even when I have the front binding all the way back it's still pretty centred. Maybe next I should get one with some setback.
im 6'0 140 lbs. and ride a 155 for park and pow and a 152 for urbans loner board fell more comfortable for me though. and i can spin fast with a longboard too. and you definitely have more control with a longer board. ever rode a rossignol mini?
