Help on board size on Jibstick

When the new step child boards come out for this year I plan on getting there new jibstick. What size should I get the 148 or 153. I am 5'9 150 pounds with a size 11 burton hail boot, and I'm 16 so I still think I will grow a little bit more. On the site they say the board widths are going to be 25.1 cm for the 148, and 25.4 cm on the 153. I was just wanted some opinions on what size I should get. Also if anyone knows when the boards are all supposed to come out that would be great. Thank You.

A 153 for sure if you think you will grow, if you get any taller the 148 would not be ideal especially with the smaller waist width.

I am also considering getting a jibstick, and I was wondering if the 25.4 waist width would be too small for size 11 boots? Last year I rode a box scratcher with a 25.5 waist width and it seemed perfect, so would the .1cm really make that much of a difference?

Thanks

No that would be fine, I would not go too much lower though.

153, cause you'll prolly gain at least 10lbs in the next 2 years. I weigh less and jib my 154 Indoor FK just fine.

You'll be fine on waist width. Size 10's fit on a 24.8 just fine.

Indoor FK is a lot more flexible than the Jibstick.

I would still get the 153 though... just pointing out that the Stepchild is a pretty stiff board compared to other "jib boards". I have a Jibstick and a Nitro Sub Pop. I like them both, but I find myself riding the Sub Pop more often because its got a much softer flex but keeps a lot of pop...

Ok, well I love the Nitro Sub Pop/Sub Zero (same board, different release dates). I like the Capita Horrorscope and the Rome Artifact 1985, though both of those I've found to be less durable than the Nitro and the Stepchild.

I love both of my boards, and that's why I have both. I was just pointing out that the Jibstick isn't really what the hype says. It's not a soft noodle, but it's still an excellent board. Later in the season (spring) I started riding more rails, and locking on to rails is easier with a softer board. That's why I ended up with the Nitro. The Jibstick is def. more stable and can handle some bigger more gnarly shit, if you are up for it.
