Default 149cm, 137lbs, 5'9"

My friend has a 149cm forum park board I might buy. This seems pretty short for me, but the board has a longer effective edge than normal. Of course it would be used for riding park, so I'm wondering if this is perfect or too small.It would primarily be used for jumps, and a few rails. It is a really great price but I do not want to get it if it is going to be too small, plus I still need room to grow. If this is too small, what size would I be looking for?

I would say it is a bit too short for you in the park I would go with a 55 for your height. If you were to use it just for rils and it was the righ tprice why not

if you are hitting big jumps it will be pushing too small but smaller jumps and rails it would be perfect for. I ride a 147 ride kink and i weigh 125lbs. I feel like my 147 is perfect for rails and smaller jumps but when i take it off a big jump its hard not to bottom out or feel stable going big.
