Exclamation i think i bought the wrong size

im 5'6 - 5'7
weigh 135
and i bought the step child simon chamberlain 156
do you think that is still a good size for jibbing and park?
i had a atomic alibi 153 and it was prime for park and jibbing.

help me out please.

At your weight and what you said you want to do with the board, I think its a little big. Should've stuck with a 153. Then again, that's just my opinion.

I'm 20lbs heavier than you, and I still wouldn't use the Simon Chamberlain 156 for jibbing and park. 153 would be better suited as an all around park board for you. It's a medium flex board for riders 20-30lbs heavier than you. So where you're on the lower weight range, it's gonna be more like a stiffer flex board, which isn't the greatest for jibbing.
