freestyle park board for short guys

Hi people,

I have a bit of a dilemma choosing a board. Am 5"3, 145 or 160cm and 65kg. Male.

Am looking for a freestyle board but having trouble finding some.

I was thinking GNU mini dk in 135 but am thinking this might be too small? Or the womens lib tech galpark 138. But my only criticism is that am heavier than average for my height and these boards probably won't last too long because of my weight.

Anyone have any thoughts about these board or the others?

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys

UMM, you dont have the nickname T-Pain do you? and live in Fort Collins, and know a Scott Bradley?

Anyway, No the Nanar wouldn't be to big. Snowboard size is based 99% on weight/boot size. If you have big feet that demands a wide, and then your weight determines the general board length. Riding style is the next factor, preferences on board feel are next, then you consider height.

If you're looking at a Nanar, I would actually pick a CAPiTA Horrorscope, K2 Parkstar, or a Ride Crush. Personal dislike of Mervin on my part, but those are all really good boards. Most will agree on that.

Yeah that will be good for you. For more mountain and less park, you'd be good for a 150 or 151

Im 140lbs. and ride a 148 WWW in the park. Probably getting a parkstar next year as well in a 149. For me I would go anywhere from 146-150, but I would try to stay close to 148 and you'll be fine.
