Jib board limitations and capabilities
 
BLUF: got a short jib board but want advice for upper jump size limits.

I recently got a 152 true twin flat camber board (detuned) for jibbing and took it with me on a trip to australia and it was super fun but I was a bit apprehensive when it came to hitting any jumps bigger than 20 feet. lookin for anyone who rides park to give their thoughts on hitting 45+ footer jumps with a board like that. Additionally I way 190 pounds and so the board is super small in my eyes even as a jib board (usually ride 156 boards for jibbing) {I am also 6'2" so a 152 board looks kinda weird when I ride it but it's so easy to get rotations on and off rails so yeah} any input welcomed.

Get better at jumping and your riding skill will be able to compensate for the smaller deck on bigger jumps.

OR

Get a bigger snowboard.

OR

Land bolts on every single jump.

you are missing the point. I am able to and did hit the bigger jumps on my standard snowboard (2014 burton process flying V 159) but it was kind of a hastle switching boards whenever I was gonna spend that session hitting bigger jumps. let me rephrase the question. Can the 152 handle a 65 foot money booter or will it not get enough speed to clear the knuckle because of my weight?

I don't mean to be negative, but if you're capable of hitting 65 foot booters, I don't think you'd be on a forum asking these questions.

...or maybe I am just not used to small boards. before this my shortest board was a 157 and that was my jib board... didnt really take that into consideration did you? I usually ride 159 cm and up and as such I didnt want to end up hittin the knuckle on a large feature and messin up my knees so I am just askin for the input of people who are used to riding super short boards. not for tips on how to ride, when I want any tips on doin any tricks I go to my friends but on this they were split. a couple thought it was too short and that the board would end up scrubbin too much speed and a couple thought it would be ok so I decided to ask the masses to figure it out from other people's experience as opposed to goin balls to the walls and ending up slamming the knuckle

Asks for input. Receives input. Proceeds to argue with input. :laugh:

ok rephrasing the question. if I were to give you a board that was 7 centimeters shorter than your normal jib board would you be comfortable taking it off of a 65 foot money booter?
