Question rc board length

Hi guys,

I'm looking to pick up a 2010 Capita Horoscope fk. Only problem is they didn't bring the 53 to australia which is the one I was after. My other options are the 55 and 51. I know you can take off a few cm's with RC but is 151 pushing it?

I'm just under 5'10" and I weigh 155pounds (70kg). I currently ride a 154.5 burton 7

Cheers guys

i would think 151 would be just fine if it's your jib board. I know that their is some people on this forum who are around 170 or 180 and ride 152s in the park.

154.5 and you're worried about riding a 155 it's .5cm's just upgrade to it.

I realise it's only half a cm to upgrade however it's my understanding that you can take a few cm's off the length of the board when going to reverse camber. So why not drop 3cm if I can?

The drop-a-few-because-of-reverse-camber thing is a myth.

I was thinking that this summer I'll probably gain a few pounds from working out a lot and I weigh about 140 now(I already gained 5) planning to gain 10 more, so about 150 lbs. and I'm 5'7". Do you think a 152 Indoor Survival would be appropriate size?
