Post Board Help

Alright I need some help.. I have a 2007 ride kink 147.. i grew alot since then and people are telling me that my board is way to small for me right now, so i am definitly thinking on getting a new board.. ive been looking around but i thought i could use some advice.. i mostly just ride around wisconsin.. im mostly on the terain park but also i would like a board that will be good for free ride.. so i kind of want an all around board for mostly park but still good for all mountain. also im wondering if i should get a wide board cuz i want to use the same ride bindings i have now and the heel part is hanging off my board now and i dont know if its ok or not?...i also dont know what size to get, ive been told around 156 or close to that..im 5'9 190lbs... id greatly appreciate any advice given to me.. thanks

well i have a 149 rome artifact and im about your same height but you do way a good 50pounds more than me. also i love rails so i needed a flexible board so im guessing anything in the 150 range would be good

147 for you is pretty small by normal standards, but remember,
board sizing is all preference. i ride a tiny board by normal
standards also but i like sizing down when it comes to freestyle
boards. that being said, 156 sounds about right. id look into an
uninc. they arent made anymore but if you can find a good deal on
previous years models id jump on that. i have one from the 05 season
and i use it pretty much for what you described. id also look
into the TRS from lib tech. everyone raves about the banana and
seem to over look the TRS. i had one as well and i loved it all
over the mountain.

no.
