Thanks for the replies, boys.
Yeah I want a short board, like 153 or 154, this is for park mostly, and learning to butter better :P ... I have a 157 Wide board, and that's about as big of a board as I want to handle... short, soft boards are WAY more fun.
The Slash will be great, but too long, imo. Thanks for the input on the machine, snowz, but I would like the board to be able to venture out of the park (not for insane speed runs, but for general cruising cuz i can't spend all day in the park)... and because I wanna cruise with it I don't want a lotta overhang.
My stance angles are 15/-9 so the overhang is quite the possibility, esp on my back foot. My boots are a size 12, but they're smaller on the outside than typical 12's, as in they fit in bindings like an 11 (low profile).
BLAST i hate needing special sizes
and yeah, there'll be a set of gold 390's going on tha mofo
