Rome Postermania 150 too small for me?

Hi All,

I'm 6'1" weigh between 165-175 lbs. I hear it's ok to downsize with rocker boards, and i usually ride a 155. I was thinking of getting a 153, but am wondering if the 150 is pushing it? I'm just asking cuz the 150 is cheaper than the 153. I plan on using this board 50% park and 50% groomers (blues&blks)

Thanks again for any advice!

150 would be pushing it probably, 153-155 is your range for what your looking for.

ehh im around your weight range and i ride a 152 but im like 75% park, i feel that if i went to a 150 it would be too short for me for all mt. it is personal opinion though. rockers have nothing to do with sizing down, its just the effective edge of the board that matter. with that said a lot of rockers tend to have a longer effective edge..

Who started this myth that you can downsize because of a camber shape?
