Default Board for buttering and jibs

I took a bunch of those size calculators online and i have a different answers.

I'm looking to buy a ride dh but I don't know if I want a 157 or 159. I'm 6'1, 180lbs, and have a 10.5 f20 which shinks my boot size down. I'm looking to use this board for just greens, butters, jibs and rails. I already have a 159 andy finch which i'm going to use for big mountain and blue and up.

So what size do you think i should get for the dh?

^^im about 170, 175 and i have a 155 for straight park and rails, but im also 6,3 ish. so it all kind of varies. but i would say 155 or 157 would be your idle size for park and rails. definitely going to big with the 159 option.


I think 157's about perfect.

i mean, im kind of new, and riding on straight ice, so i guess for me the conditions call for a shorter board.

Since you already have a 159 for the bigger stuff, you can easily throw around anything in the low-to-mid 150s.

You could look to the Kink if you're really just messing around.

I was thinking Kink but everyone and there mother won't stop raving about how much fun the DH is. The pop in that board is supposed to be amazing. I'm just starting in the park so if i start getting better I might get something softer like the Rome Agent or K2 WWW.

I know the DH isn't as soft as the www or agent but it should be fine for buttering right?
