Default size board

im 6' tall and have long legs. is 159cm too big for me for a freestyle board?

my brother is 6'4 and rides 158cm. the reason i ask is because the only sizes available are 159 for the board i want

Depend mostly on your weight and style of riding that you do. Height is a very small factor.

as far as park, i do jumps mostly. but also rails and pipe. when i go outside of NJ i do everything: glades/moguls/powder/park w/e. but i want a board mostly for tricks.

im also lookin at a 155cm. what do u think is my range roughly?

edit: i weight about 140lb. hopefully next season i'll be at least over 150lb
