Its the same general rocker profile, except where the rocker starts. It starts just outside the inserts on the Rome, and the Ride it starts just like an inch behind the contact pts. The Kink is effectively a zero camber board.

EDIT: will the stance width still be okay if i get 147 since im not tall?
Yeah that's the basic idea for pressing. Its a press, not a lean.

And you'll be fine for stance width. I think the reference is proably like 21in. meaning you'll be able to get it to 18. You're not that short. I'm 5'8. Peter line is like 5'4. Mikey Leblanc, who rides kinks often, is like 5'6. Actually its probably easier to count the number or pros over 5'10 than below. Most are shorter.
