You can get by with a 155 at 120. It would definately work better as a freeride board though...what type of terrain you ride also determines board length. I'm the same weight as you, but use a 149 for park, and a 151+ for freeriding. The only reason I havn't gone shorter for park is because of the types of board I'm riding as well.

Anyway...back to the OP's question...

Im looking at the burton 2008 blunt. I either get the 151cm board( 105-155lbs) or the
155cm board( 120-170lbs). which should i get?
depends on your riding style. for a park rat and/or beginner, i'd recommend a shorter board. also, with size 11 feet, take a look at the waist width of the board. unless you're going to use an extremely wide duck stance, you will not want a skinny board (i.e. < 25 cm or so). i have an older 151 blunt (size 10 shoe) but weigh more than is recommended; works fine for me in the park but a bit skittish when flying down the hill.

just to make this clear im 15 years old and definitly still growing, over the summer i think i grew like 5 inches. Im a size 8 shoe. I was going to get the 155 becuase i think ill grow into it and it will last me longer. My last board only lasted me 2 years becuase i outgrew it fast. I plan on usinhg it for a mix of freeriding and terrain parks. Im pretty sure im going to go with the 155cm becuase i want this board to last and mabey if in 3 years the board is a little small i can just get new bindings and make it last. I dont want this board to last 2 years, im hoping to keep it for like 4 years.
