Default Skate Banana 148 or 152

So I've decided on the skate banana for this up coming season. I'll be using it primarily all over the park. I'd like to be able to hit kickers as well as jib and occasionally ride powder and wanted something to replace my rome artifact. I'm 5'10, 120 lbs with a size 8 boot. should i get the 148 or 152

the 148 has a max stance width of 24 inches, if your stance fits that i'd say go for the 148.

The only reason I would say get the 152 is your height...it might be more fun on Pow days to have a few extra mm of board...but who cares it will still ride...get the 148.

Just beware that the shorter the nana the more flex it has and vice versa. Coz it's primarily park and you weigh nothing, go the 148.

Yeah I'd say go with the 148, I weigh 160 and the 152 is perfect for me.
