Default Burton uninc 160 Question

I've been riding for almost 3 years now and I have an 06 burton uninc 160 and Ive been doing mostly freestyle riding but now I want to start getting into tricks and being able to get more rotation on kickers etc. I'm 6" around 200 lbs and I feel like this board is just way to heavy for me to be pulling 3's off kickers and just getting pop off jumps. It's just feels too heavy to me. I've talked to some shops and they said that the 160 is alot of board to be working with so I'm possibly thinking a out getting a 155 lib tech skate banana with a pair of union contacts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you already have a 160 for riding I would suggest sizing down more than a 155. Im 5'11 and my riding board is a 157, but my park board is a 147. Maybe a 152 or something around there. On another note, I recommend trying a skate banana before you buy if you haven't ridden one before. Rocker rides differently than camber and some like it, some don't.

that's funny
u need at least 162 if you weigh 200 lbs.
and if you want a pure park board you can get a 159 max .
152 or 55,will just break into 2.trust me on this.
and even if it didnt break itll be hard to land on it .
do more research...ask other ppl.

isn't there a big difference though in riding a 155 to a 160 meaning easier to just whip around? I know plenty of people that size down boards especially for riding around the park or just something to whip. I just feel like my board is straight freestyle. It's too heavy and too much board to be trying to work with off these little kickers.

yes a 160 is a substantial size to be swinging around. Trust me I have 200+ lb friends who ride 154's and whatnot. You'll be fine as long as you aren't laying it out through a huge carve at 100 mph.

ur 5'11" and riding a 147? daaammm
i always wondered if a really small board might jeopardize your riding
im a cunt hair short of 6 ft and my freestyle and all mtn boards r both 160
i cant imagine riding anything smaller than a 57

Keep in mind I'm in pennsylvania, not too many big hills around me. A 157 at my home mountain is plenty, and the 147 is more of a rail board/a little all around park. I would never ride that 147 outside the park.
