but for real i would consider going down in board size. keep in mind im a girl and i only ride a 148 even being 3" taller so i would consider going 151 at the max maybe even smaller.
I wanted to get a shorter board at like 150 but it was only available at 152 so I checked the site and 140 lbs was in the middle of the recommended weight class so I bit. I am considering reselling it on ebay or something since I cannot return it but I definitely will look into a shorter board for my second board which would probably be more of a park only board.

Well, I asked all the shop guys to show me every pair of size 7 or smaller boots they had and this is all they could come up with:

Ride Orion M
Burton Tribute
Salomon Solace
32 Prion
32 Exus

If I were more a more confident man I would probably be able to rock a pink and green woman's boot but the black woman's boot I tried did not fit me.

152 is too long but it's not dramatic at all. Keep it, if you sell it on ebay you will lose a lot of money it's not worth it

height means next to nothing him being a 140lbs he will be fine of a 152....actually for freeriding mainly thats damn near perfect size for him
