Just picked up a 156 lib tech skate banana
 
i'm 5'10 157lbs is this board alright sized for me?

Got a pretty sweet deal on it. All my other boards have always been 152

First rocker board after only ever riding camber. I'm pretty excited

Depends on what you're doing with it. I have a 156, 5'10" and 164lbs, but want a 154...for powder, that's a good fit. If you're running around in the park, 154 or 152 would be my preference.....I just prefer a smaller board and lib tech rides bigger.

If you got a deal, ride the shit out of it!

Keep it in your quiver for Mammoth.

aww dang. I may have made a mistake.

I may return it then to get a smaller one. I think they'll let me return it even tho I put my bindings on it?. I haven't used it at all though the 156 seems so big

would you guys recommend a 152 or 154?

Where do you ride then? At your weight IMO, you could go either. Seriously it's fine unless you're 100% in the park.

Tahoe, Bearvalley and dodgeridge.

Not a park rat, but I do hit jumps, boxes, butter and hit some jibs from time to time. Also, I ride a lot of groomers at pretty decent speeds and try to get into somepowder as much as I can. My old 152 capita stairmaster was pretty hard to ride in the powder. Had to lean way back
