152 too small..?

im 5'9", 165lb, mostly rides at the park. Currently, ride a 156 custom x, I'm thinking of going down to a 152 custom x, as they don't seem to make 153, 154, 155s anymore. Let me know what you guys think.

I too am 5'9" 156 lbs and just snapped my 153 deck..... I love smaller decks, they're playful as hell! Sick for Rails, butters and whatever else.... I also Jumped with it but am not sure if it was too small and/or too soft a deck for me on bigger jumps???

A 152 for park would be optimal (IMO). I'm 170lbs and I ride a 152. The only thing I would say is that the X would not be the right board for park: it's a pretty stiff board meant more for freeriding than park.

I'm 5'9" and weight about 170 lbs. and I'm using a 152. Seems to work okay. I wouldn't know the difference anyways.

I do mostly rails and jumps, reason why i want to go down to 152 is because i tried a friend's 153 Rome Artifact the other day and it was so much easier to spin with on jumps. Not sure if its because it was a smaller or softer board, didn't like the softness when i was freeriding with it(felt like noodles) so i thought maybe going down to 152 custom x would be a good idea... I might want to try a true twin board instead, as i hear these are good for parks?

you're going from a super stiff board(custom X) to a complete noodle (artifact). try a board in between like a never summer evo, ride dh, bataleon evil twin etc.

twin boards are good because you can ride switch easily, which helps in park. i have a pickle which is a true twin.
