148 Skate Banana!

Hey guys I just ordered a 148 skate banana off of Ebay a couple days ago. Since I couldn't wait I kept looking at the Lib Tech site and I found out that the 148 is narrow? Does this mean I won't be able to ride it? I am 5'7" weight:120 and a boot size of 10. Will I be able to ride it?

148 sounds perfect for your size, im not sure about if its narrow or not. i'm 5'8, 150 lbs and wear a size 9.5 but i have a 152cm banana, and i have no toe or heel drag

YourRealatives, the 148 should be fine for ur weight.
However, the site says that the waist width on the 148 is 24.2 & recommended boot size is up to 8.5
Who knows? try em on with ur bindgings
Is ur board an 09 or 10? Btw, if u don't mind.. how much u pick it up for on ebay?

Hard to say.. with ur boot size u can go with either the 151N or 152
But boards are usually recommended by the rider's weight & ur at 120.. which i'm not sure which i'd go with sorry meng..
What made u decide to pull the trigger on the skate banana? What do u mostly ride?
