Default jib/park board sizing?

hey all, i'm switching from my stiff artec board to the capita horrorscope fk. i plan on riding a lot of jibs and medium park jumps (at biggest 35-40), because that's all my local mountain has. i'm about 5'9"-10", and about 175-80. what size should i get? my 155 sits right at the top of my collarbone. should i stick with that size for park/jibbing or would a longer board be recommended?

Your height doesn't matter, it's your weight.

No Def Not, If You Think Your Boots Are Big And Might Cause Some Heel And Toe Drag 2010 Burton Hail Boots Are Very Slimmed Down From Last Year. When I Tried On A 10 It Looked Like I Was Wearing A Size 8

typically what size boot do people ride wide boards at then?

so the general consensus is the NORMAL 155 for an 11 boot?

It's usually a size 12 boot or bigger. It's always good to make sure you are safe though. With a 11 boot though you will be just fine. Enjoy your new ride.

center of disk to center of disk to determine the distance between bindings. Center of disk to tip of tail/nose it determine how centered your bindings are (only matters if you like centered stance on the board. A lot of people tend to set their stance back on a board when riding powder conditions but doesn't really matter anymore with rocker boards.)

i know i keep saying "last question," but i have ONE last question. my current 155 goes to my collarbone. what is a good size for park riding, mostly jibs and small-medium jumps? is from the ground to my collarbone a good size or should i go smaller? should i go for the 151? 147?

Like someopne said before it doesnt have anything to do with how high it comes up on your body. It really comes down to personal preferance as to waht sice park board. Some guys are looking for something thats just for jibs so they size way down. For you Id prob stick with the 155..expecially if your looking to ocasionaly take it out of the park
