board sizing for buttering?
Hey dudes I've decided on a rossignol jibsaw for a 2nd board. I'm 160lbs 5'9 and solid intermediate rider. I want to use this board for mostly groomer days and laps in the park, and i want to practice my pressing and buttering more. Hitting rollers and side hits, etc.

So is 153 too short for me? Should I go with 155?

I don't care much about top speed, the only thing I am worried about is that a 53 will be too unstable on jumps, I usually stick to smalls and mediums in the park.

153 should be good

Same height and weight as you and I prefer a 155 for a park/groomer board. I find a 153 just a tad short on effective edge if I feel like laying down some carves. If it was a park only board 153 would be fine.
