Simple size question.

Will it be okay if I'm 168cm and 149lbs, and size 9 boots.

and ride a 155? I feel the stance is kind of wide. Its a 21 stance.

Alright thanks for the replies, although some friends said I should've gotten a 152.

I mainly avoid parks unless most of my buddies a pressuring me.



So my question is, will it be harder for me to ride? I've ridden smaller rentals for 2 years, will it effect me alot?

If it makes you feel any better, I had similar concerns when I bought my board earlier this year. I'm about 5cm shorter, several pounds lighter, went with the 151 and regret it. I definitely wish I got a longer board.

edit: I swapped boards with a friend for a run, he had a 155 and it felt pretty good (aside from the fact that his board was too wide for my feet). If you don't plan to be hitting up the park, I don't think you'll have any issues.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm 180cm / 195 pounds and ride a 156 everywhere. Call me crazy but it works perfect.

@GoSensGo; I'm assuming you bought the Fuse?

Yea Air, I did, and thanks for the PM. But the K2 guy says it's different from the years before, now it's basically a setback Anagram.


Very grateful for the replies, tomorrow I'll take it out for a run.

Kinda weird since this board is not listed anywhere, because I don't find a "09/10 Fuse" board anywhere, guess I'll find out tomorrow
