Correct Board Size?

Hey lately I've felt as though my board might be too long for me. I'm 5'6" and 135lbs. I ride a 148cm. Should I go down to a 145 or smaller? Thanks.

Correct Board Size?

That seems good for your height/ weight. What kind of board is it? and what kind of riding are you doing?

I had a 157 as my first board and even that was too long for me.

yeah 157 would be way to big for us shorter people.

i do a lot of jibbing and my fair share of jumping, but i dont go too big, like 30-35ft is what i can spin, and im pretty content with that haha
