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

All somewhere around a 155.

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

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