Default What size should my board be?

I'm 180cm tall and I weigh 68kg (that's 5'9 and 150lbs acording to google) and I'm buying a park board and I want to know what size is the recommended size and the range of sizes I should consider.

150? Wow I was actually afraid of buying 153 because I thought it was too small.

The assumption is that you said park board. If it was an all mountain board maybe in the 155-157 neighborhood.

Yeah I ride park about 90% of the time (maybe more) so I guess 153 would be just fine?

I'm about 5'10ish, maybe 5'11. I'm 165 pounds and I ride a 157. I ride mostly park and having this slightly larger park board (I have an academy rhythm) has been awesome. I would mostly ride all mountain to warm up then hit the park late morning/early afternoon for the rest of the day.

Sounds like a 152-155 would be perfect for you.

Would depend on the type of park riding, usually you'll want a little more size if you're just looking to hit nuthing but kickers and downsize for jibbing. For example my jibstick is a 150 and I'm 5'10 160lbs. I also have a 154 that I use for my all around park stick and mountain riding.
