If you want to ride more park you will want something smaller. Unless you are riding in major POW, 159 is huge for your size. I would exchange it for something smaller with mid to soft flex.

Exactly... some size suggestions for your height and riding park/ rails: 146 - 150cm

I wouldn't ride anything bigger than a 150 for park/ rails and I am your size.

Well if you're stuck with that board, then have at it. If you can try to trade down then go for something closer to 150cm. You will probably grow into that board though - you're only 13 with size 10 boots. Personally, I learned on a stiff 159 Salomon 450 when I was about 5'6" 140lb and I seriously think I wouldn't have improved so much if I hadn't conquered that board. Make the best with what you have - it might be good for you. Or if you can get another board, use that as your all mountain deck and get another soft, short board for your park fun.

edit(actually read the thread haha): and as for the OP i'm a bit over 6'4", 160-170ish and i ride a wide 159 lol, however the thing is pretty short for me, doesn't even come up to my collar bones but still like others have said its probably to big for you.

.

Just a suggestion,

If getting another board is going to be hard, here is two affordable good softer boards that are good for park riding:

They are M4 boards, which is now Artec, made by Elan in Austria.

I beleive the original retail was $420 for the Heartbreaker, and $299 on the Axis. So for $110, and $70 usd, its a decent board for the price.

Snowboard M4 Heartbreaker 150 New 2007 on eBay.ca (item 360206747103 end time 10-Dec-09 19:05:05 EST)

Snowboard Mfour Axis 149 New 2007 on eBay.ca (item 360202278958 end time 26-Nov-09 23:57:23 EST)
