DC PBJ board size
 
I'm getting the DC PBJ board, which size should I go with? I am 5'8, 140 pounds, 10.5 boot (16 yrs old). 149 or 151?

this will actually be my first board, I go snowboarding like three times a year and im tired of renting boards.. I wakeboard/skateboard all the time so snowboarding comes pretty easy to me, i can do rails, grabs, 360 with a snowboard.. I have k2 www rocker 152 that i just got yesterday but i want to exchange it for dc pbj as it's more versatile. The 152 k2 seems little too long for park riding as up to now but i'm 16 so I'm still growing.. Ah! 149 or 151 lol

i like the k2 www, its an amazing board. is the dc pbj 2010 or a 2009 model? the dc is really versitle also it dosent have ALOT of flex but its really poppy and isnt only a park board. i would reccomend 153-151

2010, i heard it's a little stiffer than the 2009 model but I don't mind.. it's still pretty easy to press and yeah im leaning towards the 151. How is your 153, would you downsize if you could or it's still easy to jib and stuff?

i like it, but i would choose a k2 www over it, much easier to turn and jib an overall softer board. I like my 153 because it isnt too short so it can handle faster speeds. go for shorter if you want a park board-longer if you want an overall type of board.
