Board Length
i know this is another annoying question but i wanted some feedback
im 5'8 and weigh 120 pounds and have a size US 8 boot. i ride mostly park now and was wondering would a size 148 board be good for me? i mostly do boxes, rails, and ground tricks not much jumps

I probably couldnt help you there, Im 5'8 120 pounds size 11 feet but I ride a 158 even though I do mostly park,a 158 is big but If I do fine in park with a 158 you could probably go anywhere from that 148 to like 155

Yeah, this will work just fine. I weigh the same and have the same boot size and i ride a 147 so you'll be fine.

For park I would probably put you one something just a little bit smaller, but that will probably work for you.

you could go smaller if you wanted too.

A 148 is fine. However, you could go to a 144/145 if you wanted.

what would be the advantages of going smaller?

smaller size gives you less swing weight for your 270 on's and 270 off's as well as your airs, i can't think of anything else...

o that make sense
thanks lol

Smaller board means more control. You want a longer one in powder so you don't sink.
