Kink, WWW, Horrorscope, SubZero, Airobic, Ultrafear, Draft, Swindle, Artifact Rocker, Salomonder...

All somewhere around a 155.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Is this board for jibbing only or are you going to use it on jumps or in the resort too? Youre probably going to want something around 152-155 depending on what you normally ride.

YouTube - 2010 Stepchild Jibstick Snowboard

heres a review of it. i just like stepchild as a whole company, but joe sexton rode a jibstick before he got his own model and hes sick at jibs, stepchild says its guarenteed to make your jibs better!

i got the 09/10 stepchild jp walker and i cant wait to shred it!

Because of your height/weight, you might not want to go too extreme with too short of a board or one that's too soft b/c it'll be a noodle under you. Just something to consider, possibly stick with a 155-157 and look at models that are one up from the softest or something like that. So instead of a Bataleon Airobic or Fun Kink that I'd usually recommend, I'd say an Evil Twin 155 or Goliath 157

15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite

Maybe like an Indoor Survival instead of a horrorscope is what your saying then? just something with a little more stiffness to it?
