I would say 148 to 150.The shorter the board its easier to turn nad manuever basically. If you are going to specialize in park u will want a softer more flexible board. Im sure these members can suggest a brand. Ive heard good things about the skate bannana.
yea ive heard good things about the skate banana too but im still deciding
As some have already mentioned, a smaller board would have a smaller swing weight and easier to control. Given your weight, a smaller board would allow you to better load the board and thus, potentially, give you more pop on ollies/nollies.
hey thanks for all the feedback
im thinking about getting a 145
i hate to change the topic of this thread but is there a board you recommend for my ideal riding style: boxes/rails, ground tricks, and not many jumps
