Default Sizing

I'm planning to buy the Burton Custom X, but I'm not sure what size to get.
I weigh 127 pounds. I am 5'4".
What size should I get?

im 5'4" 100 pounds and i ride a 143 for mostly park. what kind of riding do you do? you shouldnt be doing rails or jibbing much as its a stiff board. custom x is very performance-forward

pretty much freeriding and hitting up the park every once and a while..i was looking into the k2 zeppelin which seems pretty good for an all around, but i havent been able to find too many other boards like it

jibpan would be better for all around park/jibbing and freeride. custom x would be more freeride and hitting jumps,kickers,halfpipe. dont get the burton if you want to jib at all
