Default Park Boards under 147

I'm 5'3, 140lbs and I find that boards that suits me best are between 142-149 (rental boards) depending on what style I'm going to ride. I currently ride a technine camrock 145. After doing some research, it is extremely hard to find adult boards under 147 for park/jibbing and all boards that I've seen under 147 are classified as youth boards or womens board. I've read on forums about youth vs mens and I know that youth boards are of lesser quality but what I want to know if that is true with all boards. The Capita Horrorscope is offered in 143 and it's classified as a boys board. Will that board be of different quality than a 149 Horrorscope? Or a skate banana 145 vs 149.

Rome Artifact Rocker 144. My brother owns one. Great jibbing board. Super flexy.

If you're really having that much trouble on a 145 T9 camrock at 140lbs there's really only one thing you should be doing: going to the gym. Seriously at your weight for a jib board at the absolute smallest you should be on a 147 and if you want to hit jumps at all a 150.

What I recommend: 147 Flow Verve, 147 Ride Kink, 150 Signal Park Flat, or a 144 Echelon Killbox (meant to be downsized extra).
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I have no problem with the t9 camrock. I don't want to detune it for park when its a beast on the slopes. At my weight, I should be riding 147-150, but with my height i feel those boards are too sluggish and choppy as twin, more suited for setback.

Default The NUG!!!!

The Burton Nug sounds like it would be a good board for you. I'm 5'10" 165lbs. and ride a 142 Burton Me Nug. I usually ride a 152, but with the nug reduction it gives it the stability of a board that's 8-10 cm bigger. Look it up if you haven't. They make one that's 138cm that sounds like it would fit your needs well. I'm a firm believer in the Channel System and EST bindings, I will never go back to a 4 post or diamond mount.

Honestly you are looking at super short boards but if that's what you have ridden and like go for it. Only you know what's best for you. Otherwise I would have suggested a longer board, but if you want straight park rather than going to the Nug check out the 145 Rome Boneless. Crazy flexy board like you wouldn't believe, used as a pure jibstick and tons of fun. Also comes with wood sidewalls which is an awesome looking feature and pop rods that add crazy pop to what would otherwise be a too flexy board. After years of riding I'd suggest it highly as this years short jibbing board over literally anything.

Default has 1 size left 140 for $100.

Same rocker as NS and also made by them.

Flex is about the same as the EVO.

Same top sheet material as current NS on EVO the Matte.

Very good board at very good Price.

Hybrid rocker camber.
