my friend let me ride his flow merc (which happens to be a 153) and i happen to weigh 180 lbs. its a solid all mountain deck. dont believe the B/S about getting a 160 and up, because the 153 was just right for me. a 160 seems just obnoxiously long for a board that was stiff enough at a 153 to be a hard charger.
BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA
