Burton Custom. Opinions?
 
I'm thinking about getting a 2011 Burton Custom 156 (camber version). I'm 5'9" and 130 lbs and am an intermediate rider. I mostly freeride with little to no park. Do you think this will be a good fit? Or just any opinions in general?

That should be good. You're on the lower end of the weight spectrum for that size but if you enjoy free riding, a longer board will give you nice stable turns. I'd say go with it. I'm 5'9 173lbs and I went with a 158 custom x. I could of went up to a 160 but we're talking 2 cm here. That's less than an inch of added length. You won't notice any issues.

I have the same board in a 165. The 156 will work for you, but the 154 would probably be better.

Yea, but I'm still growing so I think it'll be fine. And I'm reasonably certain that I'm going with the camber instead of flying V...

Well if your still growing than it's fine.

And about how forgiving is this board? Because I was planning on getting Custom X but because I've heard that it's super stiff and unforgiving I'm not anymore, as I don't think I'm good enough of a rider. Anyone know? Or have opinions?
