at 5'11 and 160, a 151 is going to be a definite park/jib board. im 5'8, 145 and use a 156 board for park and carving.
Thanks for the reply! So regarding that this board will be a definite park/jib board...could i still use it for say a free ride or carving? Also does a few cm make a huge difference?
BTW the freestyle bindings that come with the board have toe cap technology.
