First off, no e-bay. if your going to buy used make sure you can check it out first. Second off, I am 5'11" and 140(super skinny) and i ride a 148 stepchild jibstick. Depending on what type of riding you do, this could be a good choice. If you are anywhere above beginner at rails and such this board is great. Also, much of the Rome line-up is great for the park. Look for boards with reverse camber or "rockers". These are what you are going to ride for the park. If you are more 1/2 and 1/2, (park and all mountain) you may want to look at Burton boards which are really good at everything. Right now is the optimal time to buy because all the shops are trying to clear out last years gear. Good Luck!
